Horsing Around…

It’s the first day of the school summer holidays for many today – my son decides he’s  “bored” at 9.20am, which even for him has to be some kind of record!

To keep them amused this morning I’ve got them creating crazy horse pictures with some spare scraps of wool I had lying around which they’ve glued onto the horses mane’s as hair. The rest of the picture has been coloured in and a lolypop stick stick to the base of the cardboard cut out to hold so they can gallop around the house with them “naying” and such like…

Here’s some templates you can use to make your own (click on the image to open into a new printable window or tab)

My Daughter’s Horse!


We’d love to see your crazy horse creations, send your photos to us and we will include them in our gallery. You can email your pictures to us at

or add the Lily P Chic Facebook profile to your friends list, post your pictures and send us a note.

“Green” Skin Toner You Can Make at Home!

“Green” Skin Toner You Can Make at Home!

A “make at home” tansy skin toner!


This soothing skin toner is not only green in color, but since you make it at home without chemicals, it’s easy on the planet, too.

Tansy tonic was in use in my great-great- grandmother’s day, though I’ve just gotten around to using it myself.

Maybe you’ve read that tansy leaves can have a strong smell, but that’s not my finding. Indeed, I find the aroma pleasing and this chilled tonic invigorating. I’ve been splashing on a tablespoon or so in the morning, and on hot days, another in the afternoon. Doing so has made my skin feel more firm and smooth.

Recipe: tansy leaves, water & milk- nothing else!

Easy to make: just simmer, cool, and strain!

Tansy Skin Toner

2 c tansy leaves
1 c water
1 c milk

  1. Place leaves (I cut them into thirds), water and milk into a small pan and bring to a boil.
  2. Simmer for 15 minutes; allow to cool in the pan.
  3. Strain the cooled mixture into a bottle, label. Store your tansy toner in the refrigerator.
  4. Once chilled, apply to your skin as a soothing toner or tonic.

Squeeze bottles are best but a jar will serve as well.

Expand Your Green!
Use old mustard, honey or any squeeze containers to store your toner and mete out just the right amount for each use.

Save Time and Energy!
Cook once, splash a thousand times! Make a double batch and freeze half. “Green “skin never looked so good!

Custom Made Snood for Children

Child’s Fondant Pink Hand Knitted Snood / Cowl / Tube Scarf w/ Flower Brooch (will custom different colours and combinations)

Gorgeously luxurious hand knitted (not a machine in sight!) fondant pink with lemon yellow trim snood. Unique design made from my own personally created pattern out of 100% aran wool.

Comprises of a generous over-the-shoulder piece left slightly open at the front, that can be wrapped, gathered and pinned in a variety of different ways to achieve multiple looks. Features a stylish length of neck tube that can be pulled over one’s head as a hood or left around the neckline for added warmth

Child Sizes: (Please specify which size you need upon ordering)

Small Child: Approx 3 – 8 years
Large Child: Approx 9 – 16 Years

Comes complete with a beautiful flower brooch to pin the piece in place made from a lively pastel, hot and fuchsia pink floral print quality cotton fabric backed in matching yellow 100% polyester silky habutae. This flower is carefully handmade, measures approx 5.5″ across and incorporates a hand stitched fabric disc on the reverse for ease of pinning (this is designed to be attached with safety pins as we believe with repeated pinning and unpinning of the piece that safety pins will minimize any potential damage that traditional brooch pins may cause).

Important Note: Safety pins should be fixed by an adult and worn by children under careful supervision.

If you want to purchase this piece for a smaller child and would prefer the flower to be stitched permanently in place this can be arranged for no extra charge. Please leave an addition note upon ordering if you would prefer us to do this.

The flower brooch is also sold separately – please see our other listings for more details

All our items are gift wrapped for free ~ Each item is carefully gift wrapped in colorful tissue paper, tied with parcel string and topped with a beautiful hand written Lily P Chic tag. Each parcel will then be sealed in a plastic bag to prevent any water damage that may occur and finally wrapped in heavy duty brown paper parcel wrap for postage. If you are buying this item as a gift for someone and would like the gift wrapping items kept separate so that you are at liberty to view the piece and then wrap yourself please add a note to your order.

Care Instructions:
Snood Only…
Machine Washable (40)

Please Note: Each piece is handmade to order and we therefore request that you allow up to 7 working days for the piece to be created in addition to the standard dispatch times. Upon ordering we will contact you with an estimated completion date and then again once your parcel has been dispatched.

Custom Requests: I am prepared to make this piece in a variety of colors in addition to the one advertised here upon request, and will create the flower brooch in a corresponding color and pattern to match. Please do not hesitate to contact me and we can discuss your personal needs for this piece. Thanks


Personally Customizable: Futher Details Below

We can incorporate two, three, four, or more different colours in your snood. Each piece has a trim edge around the base and top – you can choose to have just these trims a different colour to the main section or stripes of several colours. You can have the trim one colour and the main section striped with two entirely different colours. We’re offering a choice of 16 different colours so the combinations you can choose from are endless – you could even have a mega multi-coloured snood with all 16 colours!

Available Colours: Lavender, Lipstick Red (Pictured), Raspberry Pink, Lemon Yellow, Midnight Blue, Aster Blue, Parchment Beige, Fondant Pink, Denim Blue, Aspen Green, Camel Beige, Royal Blue, Dark Brown, White, Black, Cream.

The flower brooch that fastens the snood collar together will be made in a selection of fabrics to match your chosen colour combinations. A specially selected quality cotton decorative quilting fabric will be used for the front of the petals and the centre and a polyester silky habutae in a complimentary colour will be used for the back of the piece.
