  • Last Ordering Dates For Christmas

      Everyone always says to me this time of year ‘uhh don’t you LIKE Christmas or something?’ Why yes, yes I love Christmas. IN DECEMBER. It annoys me so much in the UK that before Halloween has even passed all the shops are full of Christmas window displays and the TV is jingle bloody bells all the way. I always think it must be better in the States because you have Thanksgiving to come first so by the time it’s done then it really is ‘proper’ Christmas time. Aaaaanyways. Here are the FINAL ordering days I can accept for both...

  • Sorry I'm late

    But here is my Christmas in pics! Here’s some presents Mother Eagle readers may appreciate: - Handmade vintage gloves from the 30s with gold and silver work feather embroidery. - Vintage 50s Piskie Queen ornament. So ugly it is beautiful. - Vintage 50s salt and pepper shaker in shape of a dwarf and a toadstool. sigh. - Plates from here! a.m.a.z.i.n.g. - Vintage plastic Stag bust. LOVE. I was SO thoroughly spoilt and so many many lovely lovely things. All in all a pretty fabulous Christmas was had.

  • Seasons Greetings!

    We bought a new tree this year. I do love a real tree best but for some reason always feel like you can only have a real tree in a permanent house. Maybe that’s to do with not knowing what to do with the tree after Christmas is over, like I would plant it but then be sad to leave it one day. That doesn’t really explain why I always felt like the house we bought and lived in for the last 3 Christmasses isn’t permanant, but whatevs, I digress…So we had a cheap green plastic one, but this year...

  • Of toadstools and zombie Reindeer

    Hiya! I went to Centre Parcs in Sherwood at the weekend, like I did last year. It’s later in the year than last time, so not so many Autumn colours, less leaves on the trees etc. But lots of toadstooly suprises! Then I spotted this! O. M. G. I’ve NEVER seen one in real life before, and you KNOW how much I LOVE Fly Agaric mushrooms, right? And I mean it wasn’t even hiding or anything – just sitting there in the middle of a patch of grass. I was so excited. Later on the next day I found it...

  • Attack of the Eco-Pods!

    My name’s Katie and I make things. This is the first sentence to the blurb about me, the seller, on my own shop reinstated on Etsy. But reading it here sounds like a statement from some kind of self help group. Craftaholics Anonymous? Felt Addicts Support Group?? So you know I used to make jewellery as Mother Eagle so you may have known me from there. You may have even bought some jewellery from me. That’s very cool if you have. How are you? Welcome back! AND you know I’ve moved on from silver and gold and sparkly charmy things,...
