    BCD – what a find! Mr Finch is amazing – I especially love the butterfly (moth?). Just gorgeous. 🙂

      They are really good arn’t they! I stumbled upon Mr Finch by chance, it was the butterfly (moth) that drew me in so to speak…

    They are great – love the foxes in their capes and gloves. Can definitely imagine those coming to life! And there’s something unexpected about that graceful swan being stuck on that little silver stand, which makes it seem even cooler…to my strange mind, at least! 🙂

      They are amazing arn’t they…. The foxes remind me of the Roald Dahl books… “Fantastic Mr Fox”

    Such a nostalgia trip looking at these! Reminds me of all the best parts and places of my childhood. And the best books! ‘Brambly Hedge’ ‘Animals of Farthing Wood’ and of course the Beatrix Potter books! I just love how you can immediately see the love that has gone into all of these creations. i love the foxes in their capes and the spider with his lightbulb bum!

      Absolutely, you just reminded me. I used to have a Brambly Hedge book to make stuffed toys as a kid (not sure where that one ended up!)…. they are amazing I love them all but have a little soft spot for the owl. I hadn’t noticed the spiders bum!!
