I don't think that I am the only one getting through January with the odd indulgent treat. Shhhhhhhhh but I have bought a few things from the Tatty Devine sale. The little biscuit heart necklace is so delicate and pretty that it inspired me and the children to make and decorate some hanging hearts.
Two Christmas's ago, I saw Karen's (from A Quiet Corner) branch that she put up for hanging decorations from - then when my neighbour offered me some twisted hazel I took a branch and it has been hanging there ever since. We use it at Christmas, Valentines, Easter and its default is birds and owls of course!
We cut heart shapes from strong red card and stuck them together with pink string to hang them. Then we decorated them with paint, glitter pens and stickers. We meant to do more of them but got a little bit waylaid by hand painting and those butterfly painting you make by folding the paper over some paint splodges!
I rather like them, ushering in St Valentines in a few weeks as they do, and the kiddos are very proud. We think they go well with the toadstools and birds- our midwinter decorations.
