Glamorous visitors

Thought I would show our windows which we are very proud of (we think they are tasteful and subtle) so have added some pictures.  Our original plan was to change them every week but have since realised that this is slightly unrealistic. 

Had a visit from two of my most glamorous, young & slim friends (Tansy & Rebecca) on a day when I am wearing a bra that my husband had boiled washed (I didn't think when I put it on) so it was too tight, a cardigan which did its best to accentuate my bra and all the flab that was trying to escape, an old skirt and boots.  You can imagine how glamorous I felt beside them! Tansy is doing a button jewellery workshop for us so came in to have a chat - she has written a book called 'Earrings' which is due out in June so hopefully people in the class will get a preview.



  1. That happens to me too. Need a trowel to put on the make up these days. Your windows are always very tempting and that little heart cushions is beautiful.
    Love Shirley.

  2. Shirley you always look gorgeous

  3. Love the comments about Tansy & Rebecca - I agree sickenly glamorous and lovely with it!!! Enjoyed our trip to the shop last week - looking forward to the course on Wednesday - well I will be when I re-discover my sewing machine and get sorted!! Best wishes Linda x
