Oh Deer, Oh Deer, Oh Deer

So it's November already!! And what a cold and damp one it is too. I have been dreaming of those wonderful cold and crisp autumn days so I thought I would find some items from Etsy which made me feel autumnal. And here they are, what a dear lot.....Is that just a bit too corny or what?

This is from

I hope you like them all as much as I do. To me they are just so scrummy. They can all be found on Etsy.

I Did It!!!!

I survived my very first face to face sales morning. It was a success as I really wasn't sure I would sell anything at all. I ended up selling quite a few! This is my display.

That day was very busy for me all in all. I started the morning at 4.30am as I do a small job at the weekends. This was followed by the coffee morning I did with my friend and then topped off with a child's birthday party (scary theme) having to dress 2 under 5's as a witch and an evil doctor. A couple hours of over excited kids and parcel the parcel fun and I was well and truly poopped.

Lazy Layouts

Sorry about the poor layout of my 2nd post. Still learning to post and also very tired!

All Bagged Out

Today has been a day of bags! I am going to a coffee morning on Saturday to sell my wares, or at least attempt to sell my wares to your typical village school mums. This is my very first time of trying to sell my goods face to face and I am getting a bit stressed and a lot scared. What if they hate them? What if I have gone to all this effort and not one person buys something. Fingers crossed then.

I have been so busy filling my bags up with all manner of crafty goodies today that I really didn't think I would have time to feature my favs of the day from Etsy and Dawanda, but I am managing to squeeze it in while my boyf puts out kids to bed. So without further ado here they are.My first one from Etsy is this from myauntdebbie, it's so much fun and I would love to go to a party with Aunt Debbie.

Next is this beautiful hair clips from kitchentablestudios. The whole shop is full of quirky items I would love to own.

Wow, if i only I was glamorous enough to wear one of these!! This is from PinkTigersDen.

So on to Dawanda.

My first Dawanda treat is this tray from I love it, its so retro.

Now isn't this gorgeous. This is from I want to fill this up with cupcakes.
How pretty is this. I would want to take my money out all the time if it came out of something this lovely. This is from
I am obviously harping back to a different era with these items. I love anything retro. Long live Vintage

Day 1 in the Here Pretty Kitty House

This is my first blog! I am now officially a blogger. I have decided to come to blogging because I have 2 online shops and it seems the done thing. It does feel a bit strange to bear your soul to the world like this.

My 2 shops are on Etsy and Dawanda so check them out if you get a spare moment. Both sites are an excellent place to find that rare and unusual gift. If you are fed up with buying the same old stuff from the High Street then go and take a peek, I promise you will not be disappointed.

I love the sites so much that I am thinking of showing a selection of my favourites goodies from both on a weekly basis. Look out for that this Monday!

To add a bit of colour to my page I thought I would post a couple of my newest items. All my kits are great presents to give to crafters. They are more personal and pleasant than the plastic boxes you get in the shops and once you have used all the bits and bobs from the kit you are left with a lovely little drawstring bag. I try and use as much vintage and recycled items as possible and mix them in with the new so you get a wonderful array of items to help your imagination run wild.
