Ellen : "I pick the Anzu 'Silk slipper' card. 18th century in style, and decorated with painted peonies and holly berries, and hand-embellished with Swarovski crystals it is festive without being obvious".
It's been lovely to see the Christmas markets in Germany this year. The carved wooden decorations, giant nutcracker men, chocolate and marzipan, and snowy scenes. Love the stars on top of the tents in Berlin, and below the elaborate displays in Stuttgart.
I love anything to do with angels and this card is very Christmassy but not in the conventional way. I would also love to have this as a piece of jewellery, especially with the Swarovski crystals that are on the card!
The weather has unfortunately plummeted, and it seems Winter is truly here. This means more tea, hot water bottles, and blankets for the Anzu team. The Patchwork Teapot card sums our mood up perfectly: vibrant quilt fabrics and a pot of tea to cheer us up!
