California Dreaming

My last and best gig of 2010 was Belle and Sebastian.  I'm a big fan and always have been.  I knew it was going to be a good set when I started crying when they played this song near the beginning.  I had to give myself a stern talking to and thankfully managed the rest of the show without being an emotional jelly.

What else, Oh I know, we have some new jewellery cabinets for the shop.  They're sort of plain and just filling in until we get our lovely old fashioned glass counter.  It has given us a lot more space to display some of our lovely jewels

Jewellery, lots of it, moving on.....

Something else that I've been enjoying is Emma at Silver Pebble's Splash of Colour Group.  Anything to brighten up a cold December Day.


But the most exciting thing is that I'm off.  Flying off to much milder climes.  California to be exact.  For Christmas.  So I've wrapped my presents, packed my bags and my camera and I hope to bore you with my holiday snaps anytime soon.

Bon Voyage

See you soon

Baby It's Cold Outside

To state the bleedin' obvious it's cold.  In fact it is so cold that I took a hot water bottle with me into the shop today, yes really, that cold.  It helped me through the day, well that and the tin of Roses chocolates that our work experience girl gave to us as a thank you present (cheers Grace).

The models have got dressed up in their winter woolies.  I'm digging the eighties mustard and black number, originally from 'Snob' ( those were the days ).

A wintery scene for me to gaze at while I dressed the window.........

and some more snowy moments

If it takes your fancy listen to The Lilac Time ( it's somehow a bit christmassy, plus I'm on an eighties kick)   and watch this  (it's a bit silly)
