to deb

A message to deb (if you are out there!) who sent an enquiry through our contact form on the website. You didn't give your e-mail address so I'm afraid I have no way to get back to you. But in the vain hope you might see this.... the answer to your question is no, we don't have the cream but still have it in lilac or red (postage <£1).

woodland wonderland

Some new bracelets from Alice & Joy from Stolen Thunder at boo vake!

Wrap it around your wrist then fasten with a little adjustable wooden heart. Or for something simpler (but why!!) - a friendship bracelet with wooden loveheart on purple leather and an adjustable wooden heart holding all in place.
