Almost ready .....

Hello my dear friends
thanks for stopping by at such a busy time
I hope your 'To Do' lists are behaving?!

I think I've rather exhausted myself on the housework front now
Boy Oh Boy 
I feel tired today
all my own fault
don't feel sorry for me
at least I have a shiny home
(for now at least)

Well ..... I'm almost ready to be soused and buried
I now have the vast quantities of Baileys and Quality street required for this task
(I also have a bottle of Advocaat on stand~by ..... Mr Sweet makes a mean snowball)

(Ok ..... I may have tested just one sweetie)

The reason for this?
Both of my shops will be closing on Saturday for Christmas
they will re~open around the end of January
(a holiday that long feels a bit naughty)

My NOTHS shop has been SUPER~DUPER busy lately
(so lovely)
Purdey (sewing machine) and I are quite exhausted
she will be off to the spa and all I need is alcohol and chocolates

I'm low on stock on a several things now
sold out on some
but there's still LOTS of prettiness available
and as we all know, Christmas is not Christmas without a Pecker!

To allow my Etsy shop to catch up with my NOTHS shop
I am offering 20% off EVERYTHING
in my Etsy shop
until I close the doors on Saturday

Please use the code
when you checkout

By The Way ..... 
You don't need to have a PayPal account to purchase from my Etsy shop
you can now pay by credit card
Etsy have made some good improvements to their site lately

Thank you for all the love on my December makes
your'e so kind

 Although my shops are closing soon
I'm still planning on popping in here to see you
 so until next time .....

BIG love

You will have to have double to enjoy some on my behalf. I have just realised that I haven't photographed my litte Pecker, so I will do that for my next post, she is so pretty! I do hope you have a wonderful Christmas and best wishes for a fabulous new year. xoxo
