Make do and Mend…..

Now we’re finally back into the swing of things after the excesses of Christmas and New Year, just over two weeks back but feeling a long time ago now, it’s a great time to take stock and have a little sort out. The cold, dark winter evenings are the perfect time to go through your home and enjoy giving a bit of TLC all your favourite fair trade bits and pieces, mending clothes and soft furnishings or being creative with items that are a little past it to make a whole new treat.  It’s a great feeling to take a little time to restore your well loved things rather than discarding them and replacing and a brilliant feeling to be able to get new use from something you already have!  The gorgeous fair trade cupcake pin cushion and needle set is a lovely treat which will be really useful during your restoration projects big or small and the fair trade trinket box, with beautiful, geometric spirals in shiny, semi precious stones is a gorgeous way to keep small but important things safe.

Now is also a good time to reorganise so that your home and work run a bit more smoothly, making life easier now and freeing up time later in the year when the sun is shining and the lovely fresh evenings almost demand that we stay outside. So when you’ve cleaned and mended why not use the cute fair trade cupcake hooks to add useful hanging space?   These fair trade hooks look particularly good in a kitchen or utility room but are really sweet in hallways, offices and bedrooms too.  You could be extra organised and use the wall hooks for your fair trade shopping bags so they are always right where you need them and you waste no time at all when you are nipping out to pick up your everyday essentials. So here’s to having a great time over the next couple of weeks getting organised and prepared for the exciting year ahead.
