You know how it is after the festive season has come to an end. Boxes, wrapping paper, broken decorations, countless bottles, crackers tins, biscuit tins… all needed to be got rid of OR turned into a crafty project or two!

Like birds have always been a trendy motif in the spring, the current year-round motif is the rustic woodland deer.
