This week I had a BIG birthday. But luckily for me, with big birthdays come beautiful presents, handmade with love and lashings of creativity, or chosen from lovely shops with taste and a fine eye.
My biggest present was my new bike (it was just like being 10 again!). It’s a stunning vintage-style ‘sit up and beg’ black handmade steel bike, crafted by British company, Pashley, in Stratford-upon-Avon. It has the most amazing ding-dong bell and a fabulous front basket. Love, love, love!
But here’s where I need your help. A bike with such beauty and personality needs a name to match, but I’m fresh out of ideas. What do you think? Do you have any suggestions?
Other stunning gifts included a beautiful and original cushion from my mum, who is a really talented maker; an amazing wooden yarn bowl made by Jenny’s dad; a gorgeous owl doorstop from my work colleagues; welly toppers from my lovely friend Kirsty; and countless paper drawings and ‘puzzles’ from my elder daughter. I really do feel loved and blessed.
