Showcase: The Doorstop Company

Phew! I had to take a little break there.  A lot of stuff going on that temporarily took my eye off the high street. How are we? Well. Good! I've got a lovely showcase to get us back into the swing of things from a lovely little gift emporium called The Doorstop Company. Doorstops make great gifts. Everyone has doors and floor level decor can be tricky. Beautiful doorstops are the answer.  Here are my favourites (all currently on sale I might add). Get draft excluding people! :

Sales Talk: Wood & Willow

Just a quickie this evening as I have arrived at the wrong side of ten o'clock and still have way to much to do. I received a tweet about the January sale Wood & Willow that is on until the 31st offering 20% off many of their beautiful range. The boutique features french, french-style and shabby chic home and garden-wares and gifts one of which I featured in my Advent Calendar on the 14th December. They also offer free P&P to the UK mainland which is an overwhelming positive for online buyers. I've had a nosey and it gets a great big 'formidable' from me. These Ceramic Coat Hooks are my favourite now down to £18.99 from £21.99 and there are also some very lovely heart-shaped keepsakes to have a look at if you're already revving up for Valentine's Day now only six short weeks away. Bon nuit a tous!

Happy New Year! Let's Go Shopping

Hellooo! I hope that everyone had a peaceful and happy Christmas. It's taken me a few more days than I envisaged to get back into my stride for reasons that are not important but I'm back and I'm into the sales (as well as a pretty dramatic detox - damn those mince pies!). My first stop is the sale at Cox & Cox that they were kind enough to notify me about via e-mail a few days back. Cox & Cox is a one-stop shop for lovely gifts at any time but a perusal of this sale is highly recommended and with up to 50% off,  I'm thinking of starting my Christmas shopping now. Here are my favourite finds:

1. Set of 3 Numbered Glass Votives Was £16.50 Now £8.25

3. "This Book Belongs To" Stamp Was £8.50 Now £4.25

4. Set of 2 Photo Hooks  Was £14.50 Now £7.25
