Its amazing to believe that we are now in the last week of January, I have of course spent the month thinking of and searching for spring.
In the house I’ve been in spring cleaning mode and outside I’ve been looking for buds and shoots.
There have been some lovely days when I’ve been able to take photos like the one above with blue skies and buds on the cherry tree there has also been some snow, no photos of that though as I’m pretending it didn’t happen, that really doesn’t fit in with my pre-spring theory!
I’ve been filling the house with spring flowers ……..
It’s lovely to have these little pots of happiness at this time of year.
January hasn’t all been about cleaning and bud finding though, I have managed to squeeze in a few little animals too!
Bella, whose name means ‘beautiful’, is my first little bear.
This little hare with all her hearts is Hartlyn, which means ‘full of love’.
This month’s fox is Frieda and her name means ‘beautiful, beloved’.
‘Dear one, darling’, is the meaning behind Cheri’s name.
Mina Mouse’s name has a German meaning and it simply means ‘love’.
And the final little lady for this month is Darlene which means ‘little darling’.
As I’m sure you’ve guessed by now with all the name meanings and the abundance of hearts that altogether these little creatures make up the ‘Valentine Girls’!!
The ‘Valentine Girls’ will all be listed in my Etsy shop this evening, Monday 25th January at 9pm GMT. Please remember that they are collectible artdolls and are not suitable for children under 14 years. More details about them can be found here.

Thanks too for all your encouraging comments on the new look.
