Happy Customer Photos

Let’s have a look at some of the photos you lot have been sending me ‘cos I love looking at them.


I especially love seeing my Little Ghost brooches out in the wild. They always look like they’re having an awesome time, especially this one of lingworth‘s.


Alison Rose bought some cute stuff including the 5 A Day tote bag and a nice selection of pick ‘n’ mix badges. I always enjoy fishing out the badges.


Kim Morrison‘s haul is even more awesome. I hope she plans to wear all those brooches at the same time!


slimmingmeslowly was looking everywhere for a cute magnetic Meal Planner and I’m glad she found mine. Hope it’s helping.


And one from my mum, from when she was busily sewing up some more Little Ghost coin purses.

If you’ve bought or been gifted anything of mine lately, I’d love to see a photo. You can share them with me on Instagram, Twitter and Tumblr or just email me.
