The best Christmas presents




A poem from a Tall Small.



A shiny anglepoise lamp with a daylight bulb so I can make jewels for tiny people at night. I need more practice taking photos with it but I am happy! Thank you, lovely family!

  1. That poem is something to treasure forever - how lovely. I'm interested in the daylight lamp - will you post about how helpful you find it? Thanks.

    Happy New Year to all your Cookies. x

  4. Oh! Heart-melting!!

    (I treated myself --and my presbyopic eyes -- to one of those lamps. It rules the world, but my neighbor insists I must be growing marijuana in my sitting room...)

  5. Lovely poem - straight from the heart. Anglepoise lamps are brilliant but i can't use daylight bulbs as it hurts my eyes -its the blue light colour. Your beading is beautiful. Happy New Year to you all. Jane x

  14. Tall small is well on her way to becoming the next poet laureate- her poem is far better than anything Mr. Motion can write! I hope you didn't have to scrub too hard to get rid of those reindeer prints ;)
