Autumn is finally here

Well it's been a funny last couple of months. The weather has been all over the place and even though we have thoroughly enjoyed the indian summer, we  are sort of glad that Autumn is finally here and the leaves are turning brown.

We at FGM towers love halloween and it wouldn't have felt right if our mini heatwave had been over halloween. We will be definitely getting our mitts on The Kooky Cake company's yummy halloween treats. The spooky cake pops cost £12 for a box of 6. Order now before they run out.

We have been really busy at FGM HQ. The national press are working on Christmas as we speak, so we have been mailing them a list of our top stocking fillers. We are only too aware of the economic gloom out there so we have chosen innovative gifts which won't break the bank. We have decided to list our twelve top gifts as a tribute to the twelve days to Christmas. We were going to feature a gift a week, but after poring over the calendar I have noticed there are only 10.5 weeks to Christmas. Yikes...

Top on our list are 1.  Twisted Twee's liz pants. They were our number one best seller last Christmas so we had to restock them for this season.
They still make me smile. I wear mine around the house and with a vest as make shift pyjamas. We are also stocking santa gift bags and merit badges for total non achievements!  

2. Another firm favourite are the crown head pillowcases. You too can sleep like a king or queen and wake up royally refreshed!
3. Corblimey's assorted biscuit brooches are flying off the shelves and make the perfect stocking filler. They really are good enough to eat.
4. Mug up on some history with the help of  Cole of London's fab designs. We love the Queen Elizabeth one or get a momento of the Royal Wedding with the award winning Wills and Kate mug.
5. British Cream Tea's inspired felt food sculpture is totally amazing, from jammie dodgers to delectable mince pies they make the perfect stocking filler. And more importantly they won't break the bank.
6. Ella Doran's Sunlight through the leaves umbrella is a magical vision of spring to lighten winter days.. (we haven't had many yet, but fear not they will be fast upon us!)
7. Gorgeous candles by Pure Light. Choose from fragrant orange, clove, or pine for a touch of christmas cheer.
8. Yummy festive cake pops by Rhubarb and Rose. They are a real treat. Perfect for mums, mother in laws or er yourself! I definitely will be treating myself before christmas. Well someone has to try them!!
9. We love love Robert Archard's Deer Dear stamp. Humorous and perfect for writing to Santa!
10. Karin Akesson's Tomorrow will be a great day print is a little gem of positivity when the winter evenings are drawing in. Something to lift your spirits.
11. Delicious teas from the Sherston Tea company. Our clear favourite is the Paint Box Relax box set.
12. Treat yourself or a loved one to a crafty home spun course by Hope And Elvis. Go on unlock your creativity..
