SHHH IT'S A SECRET

13 November 2013



Well not for much longer.
If you’re a regular visitor you may know that my husband and I (royal wave) recently celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary. 
A few weeks ago when I was visiting Free Spirit Designs blog, Natalie was talking about Christmas makes.  I have in the past purchased decorations from her and asked if she was making any new designs.  

 http://www.freespiritdesigns.co.uk/christmas.html

 This is one of the ornaments I purchased last year and it looks wonderful on the tree.  The photo is from Natalie's website, thanks, and if you click on the heart it will take you to her shop.



 She replied that if I had anything in mind she would happily design it.  Now LBC (life before children) we always bought a Christmas bauble for our tree when we visited somewhere. But LAC (life after children) they became the priority so each year we still buy them a decoration for our tree.  The only downside to this is that when they leave home our tree will be bare.
So after Natalie’s question I thought hmm what about a bauble to celebrate our 25th anniversary and the star that Natalie is she came up with this beauty. 




 I have been keeping it a secret until my OH's birthday later this week.  I can’t wait to get the tree up so we can enjoy it.  Not only did Natalie design this especially for us but she sent this little bee magnet for me.  How wonderful is she?  It’s been a nightmare keeping this hidden; I have really wanted to just put it on my fridge. 



So if you’re looking for something unique and special have a look at Natalie’s website.  What I love is the fact that we have something totally unique and everything is made with such love and kindness. And just so you know she hasn't asked me to promote her products.  I genuinely love her designs.

Thanks Natalie and thanks to all my visitors.

    1. Thanks Deborah. I will have to think of a design for each year now. The tree will be bare when the kids leave.

  8. Hi Ali, Happy Anniversary and thank you for the lovely book . . . I can not wait until I am finished with my Christmas gift making, so that I can curl up with it. Also, daisies are my favorite flower and I love the little book mark, you are such a sweetie pie :) I hope you don't mind, but I put a link to your blog on my latest post, so expect a few new friends to show up to say "hi'.
    Have a lovely day,
    Your blogging sister, Connie :)
