Everyone loves a pixie coat!

Standard

Everyone loves a pixie coat! Even Rosie rabbit has one, made from the hood of one of mine, when the bottom (literally) fell out.

From Friday 29th November to Friday 6th December, you can purchase a short coat for just £25 or a long coat for £35, and as an extra gift from me, I’ll send your parcel, in the UK, for FREE.

Email me from this blog to buy a coat, or if you have a query, or if you need me to measure for you.

If you’re looking for unusual gifts for your friends and family, why not consider a magical story, written by The Riverbank Witch. You can find of all of my books on their pages. Signed books are available directly from me, and like the pixie coats, as an extra gift, if you request a signed one, I’ll post to the UK for free.

Thanks so much for dropping in and I do hope I shall be hearing from you.

Stepping off the Christmas band wagon

Standard

When my children were small, I remember their faces aglow with delight and wonder at a  glimpse of fairy lights, candles and holly. Family traditions warmed us as the Wheel turned from autumn to winter. Then the Christmas band wagon came to town. Shops shone with plastic sentiment from November and the media enforced the message that Christmas was a season to get what you want.

We continued putting out a tray for Santa and his reindeer, not starting our Christmas until we had sung carols in the barn with the animals at the Remus Horse Sanctuary and opening stockings pinned on the fireplace on Christmas Eve never lost its joy but still the Christmas catalogues and bombardment of adverts on TV created an atmosphere of greed and desire. Pressed to conform, I queued for vegetables before the shop opened one year on Christmas Eve and was appalled by the pushing and shoving and anger evoked by a dwindling supply of sprouts. Never again.

The last two weekends, I’ve taken my books and pixie coats to Christmas Fayres. Within this atmosphere of crafters and caring folk, I’ve reached a decision. I’m stepping off the Christmas band wagon this year.

I would love you to buy my magical books, inspiring yourself and others to see the magic in this world and the gifts you have within. I would love you to buy a pixie coat to snuggle up in when the weather turns wintery but I will not be pestering you to do so.

On my Facebook pages and on Twitter, I shall pin a post/tweet showing you where you can find all my books and through this blog or my personal Facebook page, you can contact me about pixie coats.

I shall continue to blog but will not ‘pimp’ on social media, flooding your feeds with adverts.

I’m looking forward to a Yule and Christmas filled with family, friends and fun, where caring for people in the community and animals who have no voice, is more important than shiny gifts and hope you will support me in the spirit of warm heartedness and love.
