Ho Ho Ho, lots of snow!

How lovely to see little white flakes of snow fluttering down. Little did we know what chaos it would cause!
It was fun to watch the children rolling snowballs down the hill and being pulled along on sledges by their parents.
We were hoping to show you a picture of the beautiful old sledge we bought for the shop but it was bought yesterday by a lovely couple. They even put their shopping on it whilst they continued up the hill.
Its been quite an exciting time for us in the run up to Christmas. Especially with it being our first one in the shop. We have had some lovely customers regulars and new and have had some wonderful comments about the shop.
We are open on Christmas Eve and will be sharing a glass of warming sherry with those feeling in the festive spirit, there might just be some chocolates left too if we can manage to resist them!

These little lavender hearts prove very popular with our customers. They are refillable too!
These are some of our handmade shabby chic tablecloths.

We have been open since May and have been thrilled by the lovely response we have had from our customers.

Hebden Bridge is a very friendly place to be, there are some lovely shops and cafes and we have been made most welcome by local shopkeepers and villagers alike. Once you have visited Hebden Bridge it is a place you will want to return to again and again!

We are really enjoying our days here and the shop is looking lovely. We are proud of the fact that we buy from small family run companies
