Hopeful Doves

This morning I’ll bet there were more than a few people relieved that January is out of the way. It doesn’t usually, but this year January got to me.

But it is February today and I have high hopes for this month. So high that I may need some help from some hopeful doves.

A dove necklace but not like any other, the Paloma: Dove Hand Shadow Puppet Necklace is really different and will have you trying to remember shadow puppet shapes from childhood memories. This sweet shadow puppet website might jog your memory (I particularly like Grandpapa and Boy – I thought it was only animals that could be made! Anyway I digress…). This necklace in either finish is £50 from Bouf.

I bet the black doves (not ravens!) on this acrylic ring by The Mesh would cast a good shadow too. Gorgeous and even including shipping costs from Portugal you will be left with change from a tenner.

The Dinky Dove is a new greeting card seller on Etsy, she makes cards from her nest in Surrey. The cards are deliciously simple in their designs, I love this ‘Dove Flying to Heart’ card. All the cards are £2 plus postage.

I wonder if The Dinky Dove’s nest looks like this ‘Ménage A Trois’ Boutique Hotel for Birds by Doveshed?

You can choose your choice of Farrow and Ball paint and with the optional copper tropical love birds and monogrammed lead heart this could be a beautiful wedding or anniversary gift. This three-bedroom version is £109 and the six-bedroom ‘Le Petit Chateau’ is £129.

Our cats would get very fat very quickly if we put this in our garden so, unluckily for our cats, I may instead opt for the wine rack or cupboard that Doveshed do in similar designs.

Here’s hoping to a fantastic February!
