Christmas Wishes……………...









Hi Sweet-peas…..

I have a Christmas wish that has come true………..Warren made us a perfect dining table that seats eight, out of recycled wood from the sheds. 
With such beautiful light in the church and a big space to fill we are both so happy with how it looks.
I have even been inspired to pop out some Christmas decorations………the upside down twig tree is the perfect place to display Katy's bespoke felt creations…….we are so lucky to have received one each year for the last six years………I just love them.

The squirrels are about to start back to work and will be open everyday till Christmas now. Not many sleeps till santa comes, I hope you are all being good.


love V

  5. Well done, Warren! I've just showed Jon - he bought some Victorian billiard table legs from eBay FOUR YEARS ago to do similar and they're still festering in the shed! Warren puts him to shame!
    Love your simple Xmas decorations and both your gorgeous outfits! xxxx
