Teenage Secrets

This is my favourite holiday buy. We were on holiday in St Ives a long time ago when children were teenagers and an old chap (probably the age we are now!) was selling these, he had dozens. So I bought this, much to my husbands despair. It was only a few shillings and is a match box with the striking paper on the base. A few Christmas's ago I was looking for matches for the candles and remembered this. Only to find that half of the matches were missing. My son calmly told me that he and his sister would use them for their 'secret cigarettes' when I was at work.....and to think at the time you imagine you know your children ...NOT
But, the point of this post is to tell you about my latest make. On sale on Folksy and Misi £14 pluss p&p

Just look when Hennie has made!
As Craig would say Fab-u-lous. (Strictly Darlings...)

These are for sale in aid of Children In Need at only £5 plus p&p so OBVIOUSLY one is needed for Alice and another is needed for her cousin Vonnie!!

Here they are, the Christmas decorations I have been making for the last month. Between us we have 75!! oooh! that is 25 sets. They have proved very popular over the last couple of years so let's hope there are still people out there who don't have any...
We often get asked where we bought the tree..that really really annoys us. (John Lewis 3 years ago!)
If you want one single it is £4 and there are lots to choose from on Folksy and MISI. Wish us luck.
