Thankful & Very Busy!!!!

So, today I rushed to the newsagent to get my few copies of one of my all time favourite decorating magazines,
To hold the actual magazine in my hand was wonderful. There was a mistake made though with no mention of my store in the magazine,
but never mind, I have spoken to Victoria, the Editor of the magazine and all is good
...everything happens for a reason, and I have always believed in that.
I'm just So overjoyed to be on that cover with Bernard the Lamb!!

Anyway, I wanted to talk about the wonderful tree on the cover..... 
which came from the same place I got this stunning tree that I used at the recent Design market from
It is run by Lee and her Husband and is not far from where we live. Lee has written a lovely post crediting my tags to that front cover which was lovely of her...thanks Lee!

The Farm is getting prepared for opening on the 3rd December and you can go and pick out your own tree, which I think would be a wonderful tradition to start with your children.
I am hoping to get one this year for our home. The smell is divine and most people who visited my stall at the market, commented on the smell of that little tree!
When I built this tree at the market, it was a little hint on the cover shot.
No one knew though as we were sworn to secrecy...and trust me, I thought I would burst!
On the tree I added not only our new Christmas tag range, but the actual tag designs that were in the shoot.

Since I mentioned the business would be stepping up, I have been madly crazy in a oh-so-good way, and I have all of you to thank.
Thank you for really getting behind me and Marley & Lockyer.
You have no idea how ecstatic I have been the last few weeks with how it is all going.
Lots of exciting news is on the way
...but you'll have to wait and see ;0)
Thank you to all of you who left Facebook messages, emails and comments on the blog and Etsy.
I'm over the moon xx


  1. Hi Ness!
    This is wonderful news. Your tags look so lovely on the tree and should definitely be on the cover. You deserve the recognition!!!

    They are so beautiful with such depth and detail.

    Fit to burst is the word - sitting on this type of secret for MONTHS has been nerve wracking.
