We’re doing something extra every day after opening our Advent calendar window this year. We’re putting an item of food into a box for our local food bank, and then at Christmas we’ll take the whole box along to our local food bank in Horsham to donate it.
More new additions to my shop this week! These little trees are now rivalling my pinecones as my favourite things to make. It’s far too early for real Christmas trees (we’re a week-before-Christmas family) but I’ve had such a lot of fun decorating these tiny treasures.

If you order by the date given below for your country/region, I will guarantee to have your item(s) in the post by the Royal Mail’s last recommended posting date for Christmas. (more…)

This is a tradition in much of Europe, and used to be in this country before the Victorians rearranged things. Hence we usually find ourselves making our Twelfth Cake a week after the rest of the nation makes their Christmas Cake. (more…)
