It's beginning to look a lot like.....

This month I finally gave into the fact that in craft selling world, it's time to start preparing for Christmas. I'm usually moaning about how early the shops start having xmas stock in but now I've joined them! With the S&S Etsy shop to keep stocked and two Christmas fairs coming up I suppose it's a good idea to get on top of things so S&S HQ is now full of felt G.Men, stockings and tree's, lino cut puddings and looong Christmas 'to do' lists. 
I just hope I'm not sick of it all by the time the big day finally rocks up!

You can find all of these S&S Christmas goodies here, and find out all about up and coming fairs and events here

Friday Fav's #3

It's that time again, although I managed to miss payday because it was in the middle of the week, but still we all have time for a little weekend Etsy splurge :)

My Friday Fav's have a bit of theme this time round, that theme being cats :) What me? Talking about cats? Surely not?!


These little cuties are from an amazing vintage collection in RetroMeow (what a name). The shop owner, Amanda, became the owner of an extensive collection that her Grandma had accumulated. Luckily for us she now sells them through Etsy. I've got my eye on this cute pair of salt and pepper shakers. 

Next up is the work of Cathy Peng who combines her love art, cats and a  passion for all things kawaii into this cute brand.
Her illustrations remind are just so cute, there are so many gorgeous items I just can't decide, although if you get the cat with the tote bag then I'll go for that :)

Lastly, this shop just HAS  to be mentioned and must be the owners of the most obedient cat ever! CatAtelier make handcrafted cat outfits. I'm sure Betty would be climbing the walls if I tried to get her into a beret and lace bib but you've gotta love these beauties, who doesn't appreciate the sight of a cat in a top hat and bow tie?!

Have a puuurfect weekend......
