    We buy a new decoration for our tree each year, and this has to be one of our favourites yet - so tiny and yet so perfect and so unusual. We look forward to enjoying this decoration for many years to come.

    Really fun and funky idea! we used them in crackers for Christmas and they went down a treat. Lovely that they are sustainable and reusing natural materials.

    A lovely gift for a friend, just as described and received in good time even with the dodgy post at the moment. The gingerbread man is so cute and was very well packaged so it made it all in one piece.

    These are totally adorable and exactly what I wanted for a special gift. Ginette was really helpful and went above and beyond. She was super communicative and they arrived incredibly quickly despite the delays with Royal Mail etc. Will definitely buying from her again. Thank you so much! x

    I've just received the cutest Christmas decoration! My little snowman scene in a walnut is just perfectly made and arrived so carefully packaged in a beautiful box. This will be taking pride of place on this year's Christmas tree! Thank you!


    The British Craft House, November 2020

    I cannot begin to describe how pleased I am with this hamper! Everything was packaged so beautifully and it was a delight to open each item. Ginette was so lovely and even swapped some items for me that would be a duplicate of my Walnart advent calendar. If you love surprises and beautiful creations, this is for you!
