Argos but I've seen these in other kitchen shops around the city.

Wising Everyone a Very Merry Christmas, G
Thursday, December 16, 2010
I noticed the trend for greetings cards featuring vintage playing cards in London over the Summer (in shops such as Selfridges and Anthropologie). When I returned home I really regretted not buying some so set about searching online. I was lucky to find sets of Animal Rummy and Crazy Eights Playing Cards by Whitman. I especially love the little critters so made this card today (using Paperchase card blanks and photo corners) for my nephew's 2nd birthday this weekend!

I came across this Bodum Nissen Christmas Tree Holder in town the other day and was intrigued - its so stylish and compact - though suitable for a tree under 2m so no Griswold-esque monsters allowed! I had a look on the Bodum site and was surprised to find that they have a Christmas range - love those little toadstools!

Remember my excitement when I found this Deer for 2euro in Cork - well, I visited the shop last week and found this companion Doe to keep him company!! They are currently hanging out on my mantelpiece. So I've been a bit creative and made this Christmas Sweets Felt Garland - very easy to make with strips of felt and some butcher's twine!
I also put together these Recycled Egg Carton Fairy Lights - which I made using this tutorial. I've been saving egg boxes for what seems like about a year and I'm quite happy with the result - maybe this would look better with traditional undyed egg boxes?
I finally ordered some Washi Tape from Etsy so I'm planning loads of little projects inspired by here with these beauties. Oh and I sold this necklace from iheartcharms so made sure I gave the packaging a little festive cheer before popping it in the post!
