Christmas candles and fairs

The candles in tins are flying out the door. I had to order yet another batch this week . Cinnamon and orange is the best seller at the mo , followed by Christmas spice .

Well that was the last last outside sale-phew . I have decided to not do anymore and stay in the shop next year . Apart from feeling that you should be in two places at once, the unloading then more unloading . Glad i have ruled that one out.

Ede and Tilly -well , a turn up for the books!! Tilly has never been keen shall we say at Ede`s arrival and has took to swiping Ede on the nose whenever she is too close so this was a surprise they even went to sleep later. Both just want to be on Poppy`s bed , um so cosy when the warm winter sun shines in.
