Never judge a book... it's cover.
Yesterday a courier driver came in with a big delivery for us. He was a big feller, high-vis vest, steel toe-cap boots, many tattoo's and the odd piercing.  I  thanked him and squiggled on his electronic pad thingy. As he was leaving the shop he stopped in his tracks and looked at one of these...

"How much are they?" Says he. "£4.90" says I. "I'll take one" Says he. I carefully wrapped it in pink tissue and off he went looking quite pleased, I have to say.
N'aaaaaaw! So sweet! Love to know who he bought it for!

Those clever sorts... Country Homes & Interiors (December issue) borrowed some of our vintage French jam jars and used them for prawn cocktail! I know it's a bit Margot and Gerry meets Abigails Party, but I bloomin' love a good prawn cocktail!

Brilliant idea putting them in our vintage jam jars. They'd be great for puddings too. Eaton mess would look fantastic in them...or what about individual trifles? Yumeh!

Fa-la-la...! It's 7.10pm and I'm still at the shop putting the finishing touches to the Christmas displays. It looks GORGEOUS! (even if I say so myself) 

We've got some super-lovely things this year, so if you can come tomorrow and be the first to see everything, please do. We're open tomorrow (Friday 4th November) from 10am-7pm and Saturday from 10am-5pm.
Hope to see you here for mulled wine, mince pie's and a lot of sparkle!
