After a year off last year, I’m bringing back my fun 12 days of Christmas series. Starting out with shoes, which I published for several years, I did a sugar-laden series of cakes in 2016.

So the pair I’m kicking off with is a couple of whimsical hearts. I bought these by the Cornish seaside in Padstow and they always make me smile. I’m off to an Alliance meeting in London today and I’m going to enjoy wearing these, along with their matching necklace. Please come back tomorrow to see what I choose to deck my ears with on Friday!
