the lonely GINGE-bread man

the lonely GINGE-bread man

Arrr look at this poor little fella, all his brothers and sisters have gone off, and now he’s looking for a new home…

GINGE used to be a high flyer, but didn’t take redundancy too well, (hence the shirt and tie).
Now he’s just a down and out, found nestling in piles of old tinsel, he doesn’t bother even to shave.

But it doesn’t have to be this way…with your help we can find him a new home – a sparkly, twinkly branch to hang off. Can you give hope to an abandoned decoration?

Pretty & gay (in a 60’s way)… Sally loves all things ladylike

M&J Blog



As Halloween is inching closer, we’ve been brainstorming some last minute costume ideas that you can throw together with a touch of DIY. One idea we’re loving is the classic princess or fairy. With this in mind, we’d love to DIY a pretty pair of glitter shoes, create a lovely lace crown, or embellish a dress with some flowers. Check out some more of our inspiration below, and don’t forget to stop by!
