What a lovely neighbour

Sometimes a blog post really catches your eye and makes you stop and think. BirgittaDesigns posted about domestic violence this week after she had to help her neighbour and child escape from an abusive partner after the woman arrived at her door battered and bruised. It still shocks me that some woman and children have to live in fear and makes me very grateful to have had no personal experience of this sort of abuse (physical or emotional). Birgitta very kindly offered to donate money from the next sale in her folksy shop to Refuge so I thought I would pop over and have a look. I spotted this gorgeous little t shirt straight away and it was the right size for Sam so it was obviously meant to be!

It came wrapped beautifully

and included a lovely little heart which izzy has already grabbed for her room!

The fabric for the rocket is gorgeous. I need to have some of that!


Birgitta very kindly rounded the money up to £10 for Refuge which is a lovely thing to do. I think she did an amazing job supporting her neighbour in this way too. Check out her Folksy Shop for more gorgeous things and Refuge for more information about domestic violence.


  1. What a great cause.
