Lover of all things unique and handmade.

After a lifetime spent working outdoors designing and maintaining listed gardens, parklands and landscapes, I've decided to expand my other love.....designing, making, creating beautiful things for the home.

I've always designed and created handmade items of many kinds of things, often giving them away but often selling them too. Loving Christmas and not being able to find what I was looking for has led me to starting this business on Etsy. Now approaching my fourth Christmas on Etsy, I'm loving every minute of it; it gives me the perfect excuse to indulge my love of Christmas at any time of year. It takes a long time to craft a handmade fairy, no quick glue fixes, so I can be found covered in glitter and sequins all year round, beavering away to create a collection ready for your tree.

As well as designing gardens I've spent many years creating Christmas items to use in my work of Yule time decorating and dressing design led boutique hotels and private members clubs; wreathes, garlands, trees and also fairies.

My fairies are a little bit different, being a country girl with a love of tweed, many of them have a country flavour, tweed, check and the odd bit of gingham. Some of them are sparkly, some rich and opulent but they do all have one thing in common - entirely handmade by me. I don't use glue, you won't find a seam trimmed with pinking shears then stuck together, everything is entirely sewn and seamed as if it were a full size garment to wear. The fairy I made nearly 30 years ago for my own tree is still as good as new, it will last a lifetime and so will yours, they're genuine keepsakes to pass from one generation to the next. Everyone remembers the Christmas fairy they had on their tree when they were little, the magic of unwrapping it every year, gazing up with excitement knowing Santa would soon be coming. I hope one of my fairies becomes your keepsake, your magic fairy to be unwrapped year after year.
