Pixie in the car!

Given how busy this weekend is looking - just the small matter of closing the shop and relocating the business! - I don't think I'm going to have much time to write a bank holiday entry so I thought I'd tell you about the last bank holiday.... (I love that there are so many this time of year - I have a friend in the US who is staggered by how many bank holidays we seem to have!)

So, last time, I indulged in a classic bank holiday activity - and cleaned my car! (Quite a big deal for me as it only happens a couple of times a year.) Did a very thorough job inside and out, and even waxed it. And then, to celebrate my lovely shiny car, I decided to sit a Maileg pixy in the passenger seat - and she has been driving around with me ever since. What is more I have had quite a few comments from people about her - "Is that a PIXIE in your car?!" at the petrol station and so on - so I decided to put a little label on her saying 'Available from www.cottontailsbaby.co.uk'. So, a funky new passenger and a neat bit of marketing to boot. I think I will put a row of the giant bunnies in the back seat next...

Wow, I didn't realise just how big the pixies are!!! Looks cute though :)

Sorry I haven't replied before now, seems to have been a combination of rushing about and then being exhausted! Hope closing the shop down isn't too horrible, you're nor saying goodbye to Cottontails, just taking it in a new direction.

Hope you have a brilliant weekend, love mel xxx
