About

I have chosen to name my shop A Pony In My Luggage because of a beautiful book with a similar name that I loved as a child. The book tells the story of Anna and Nicholas who win a Shetland pony in a lottery in Denmark and how they somehow manage to keep him a secret from their aged Aunt, and smuggle him back home to Sweden in a large trunk together with their belongings. I have always had a great love of animals in literature, in art and of course in real life, and in fact I now have a very similar little pony to the one in the book- a dreamy , pretty brown and white Shetland with amazingly long eyelashes. My own small pony is now white with age and is living a wonderful retirement with my other horses in a picturesque part of Warwickshire.

I love beautiful things and I admire good craftmanship, this makes Etsy a wonderful place to hang out. One of my great pleasures is the giving of gifts, and I nearly always give handmade treasures, whether made by myself, or chosen from one of my favourite talented online storeholders. I love candles, soaps and fine art in particular. I also have a keen interest in taking photos and I am always trying to think of better ways to show off my creations.
My treasure boxes are a pleasurable hobby for me and each one is a little project of its own. I don't start with a plan as such, I allow each box to evolve from the starting point of a lovely colour, pattern or texture and we go from there, I enjoy the surprise of seeing how each box turns out!
