Marks and Spencer are selling these Christmas biscuit selections…
…with gorgeous tins designed by Sanna Annuka.
Future classics with their vintage Scandinavian folk art feel.
She was responsible for this Swiss biscuit tin last Christmas – it’s currently changing hands for £15-£20… without the biscuits!
We’ve bought ours early this year – they’re sure to be popular again.
We’ll be giving a few tins as presents – but some will have to go under our own tree!!
They’ve also got a butter shortbread tin with a sweet little Scottie dog on the front.
We recently posted a blog featuring illustrations by Miroslav Sasek – we don’t know who designed this tin – but it also has a vintage feel is very reminiscent of his work.
Here are the actual illustrations from the book…
…published in 1961.
It’s not only going to be a tin-tastic Christmas in our house – looks like it’s going to be biscuit-tastic too!
Xmas… that’s worked out nicely…
It’s a good job that Christmas is here as we didn’t have any xylophones or x-ray machines for sale!

…and with 2009 approaching, it’s also an opportunity to thank you all for your support & encouragement during our 1st year in business.
H is for Home is going really well and we’ve thoroughly enjoyed these past few months.
So it’s a happy Christmas to you all – hope you have a fabulous time!

Unfortunately the pre-Christmas launch we were hoping for didn’t come to pass. we’ve been doing a bit more tweaking and reckon there’s going to be around a month’s ‘slippage’. So once the Christmas & New Year frivolities and festivities have died down, January should finally see the H is for Home website go live!
We’ve been keeping busy in the meantime though, to prove it, here’s a collage we put together of some of the items that will soon be up for sale.
Christmas & New Year greetings to everyone!
