Good afternoon everyone! We had some amazing entries sent to us in our last competition – Share your TOL story to win £100 Off you order, which ended last week. I can honestly say I was absolutely overwhelmed and touched by each and every one of your stories! Some of which illustrated tremendous strength and bravery.
You are all very inspiring and gorgeous people and thank you so much for sharing them. Here are just a few of your stories…
The Rainbow Room
We sadly lost our baby at 21 weeks and called her Pixie. We wanted to do some charity work to raise money to build a rainbow room within Barnsley hospital dedicated to help support bereaved parents.
“After every storm there comes a rainbow but you won’t see the rainbow if you are looking down”.
This quote meant alot to us and gave us hope. Mel kindly donated a gorgeous and unique frame to both Barnsley hospital and our family, and it beautifully embodies this quote. Massive thank you, your kindness means so much.

A Beautiful inspiration
I was sent my TOL after a tragic accident I was involved in. It not only made me smile but inspired me to keep going and remembering the person I was. I still wake each morning and look at the words there which describe how I was and remind myself that’s me!! My friends involved are mentioned, my best friend I lost and my family for their encouragement it was a perfect gift and will always make me smile when I look at it x
Our Little Miracles
Last year my partner and I went through a very tough and traumatic time during the birth of our two beautiful baby boys (December 2013), at only 29 weeks old. They were extremely poorly, both weighing as little as 3lb each. The love and support we received from our family and friends really helped us through these difficult months, and we were so relieved to finally have our gorgeous little boys come home! A TOL frame was created to treasure those first memories and we are so proud to share our amazing miracle babies Issac & Finley to the world.
