One for the child inside


I haven't had the chance to post these before, so just before the year ends and we conclude our winter celebrations, I thought I would show you a few glimpses of the displays I realized this Christmas for the Antiques Centre in Gloucester. And whilst I love window dressing at all times (and I do), it is never more rewarding than at Christmas time, when one sees all the little children squashing their noses in amazement against the windows and hears them squealing with delight upon entering the store. All as it should be :)

Merry Christmas!

 Happy holidays everyone, it's been a long time since my last entry, hope you're all well, I am yet to catch up with your blogs, but decided to finally break my self imposed exile. I had wanted to do it for a while but couldn't bring myself to post - it's amazing how sometimes the easiest tasks seem mountains to climb.

Anyhow, this is a time for merriment and in that spirit here is a cute little dress I wore this Christmas. It is my mother's latest creation, a 4ply mercerized cotton knit that draws its inspiration from the central illustrations below.

I opted for functional buttons in mother of pearl with a matched buckle. I have to say I am really happy with the choice of design, I love that low back and there is a tiny little detail my mother added in the shape of cream vertical stripe on the pocket (barely visible in the pics) which made me squeal with delight upon its discovery :).

 That's all from me for now, Merry Christmas to you all!
