Wooden stocking - £2.95!!

Isn't this gorgeous? I think it is. It's a flat wooden stocking - quite large, 40cm - from Maileg, with a little of their stripey red ribbon to hang it by. I ordered loads of these because I thought they were so different and lovely, but I've only sold a few so have put them into the sale which means they are now only £2.95. A bargain!

Every Christmas there is one item I over-order - last year it was the Maileg pigs. I had pigs all over the place until the summer. Although as my boyfriend pointed out, this year's 'mistake' is rather more unforgiving - after all there isn't going to much call for wooden stockings after the 25th!

I have a feeling my own home is going to be covered in them this Christmas... not to worry!

A jewellery course sounds fun, I can imagine that making it could be quite addictive! My best friend used to make and sell jewellery when we were at school and I had sooooo many pairs of earrings. I love creative stuff, maybe you should just have a bash at a few things and see what you like the best!

Those wooden stockings are really cute, I saw one on your picture of the shop window and admired it :)
