Thank you so much for the wonderful cushion. It was perfect and even nicer than I had hoped. The personalisation on the back was brilliant. I haven't bought a nicer 50th birthday present and will come back for more!! Thanks again,

I received my lamp, delighted with it, as it was to replace the identical lamp my 3 year old granson knocked over and I needed to match it with my two others. Thank you for an excellent service.

Hi, received my order swiftly, thanks for that, really lovely items, the little shoes are cream and not pink as shown online, however, they're so pretty the colour doesn't really matter, thanks again for super service.

Just a small note to say a big thank you for pulling out all the stops for my late order of the Josy/Ella blankets which arrived this morning, and are now winging their way to Toulouse and Leipzig. Blankets as lovely as ever, and up to your high standard as usual.

Thanks ever so much for the quilt and pillowcase "OWEN's" parents were thrilled. I am sure you will receive a lot more orders as already a few of my friends have asked where they can buy the same.

I just wanted to email to say how delighted I am with my recent order. So quick to arrive, and such a beautiful blanket, thank you. I have many friends with babies due and will almost definitely return to order more of these.

Many thanks for the Christmas Sack I ordered and safely received today. I am absolutely thrilled with this, the quality is superb and it looks so much better in 'real life' than on the web page. It is absolutely gorgeous and I know it will be appreciated by my granddaughter for many years to come. Once again many thanks.

I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for dropping off the hot water bottle by hand. It was really unexpected and I certainly didn't expect anyone to go out of their way to get it to me so I am extremely grateful. The bottle cover is gorgeous and will be very much appreciated at the birthday party tomorrow. I am sure there will be more orders coming your way - certainly from our house. Thank you again for going out of your way to drop it off - it really was truly unexpected and heartwarming in this day and age.
Kate Devereux

Dear Sue, thank you very much; the apron arrived on Saturday morning with plenty of time to spare before the birthday tomorrow. The quick turn around has been appreciated. With kind regards
