On this "Sweetest" of days, I just have to share one of my most treasured possessions.
(It was a gift from my very first and dear children's book publishing client!)
My "Winter Story" Brambly Hedge tea cup & saucer! Have you ever heard of Brambly Hedge?

The official site is filled with delightful information, if you'd like to take a visit.
This tea cup set is based on a series of children's books, created by Jill Barklem, which involve
