Dashing through the snow

This year we have added a new limited edition’Coastal Christmas‘ range to our homeware and have been busy getting it ready for the website.  The central motif is this gorgeous reindeer (above), inspired by the swooping swirling lines of early folk art.

We’ve taken this central design and adapted it for a new line of Christmas cards, festive stickers, and napkins (coming soon).

Reindeer Christmas Card

I always love this time of year, and have often thought I would be quite happy running my own all-year-round Christmas shop 🙂 It’s not so much because I love Christmas Day itself…. it’s because I love Christmas time, and most especially Advent (which I will say more about when it’s here). For me, it’s all about the preparation…..cosying up the house for the longer darker days. Lighting the candles. Snuggling under the blankets. Choosing a new decoration for the tree.  I love the deep warm reds and the soft russets and burnished golds that bring the autumnal colours of the outdoors inside.

My guilty secret at this time of year?…..ssh……feel good movies on ‘Christmas 24‘…….but don’t tell………
