Thank you so much to everyone who commented on 'the big one' yesterday- it has meant so much to me to hear from people going through similar times. As Riki said- we must follow our bliss.
I also wanted to pop in and say...
If any of these darlings are on your favourites list, better grab them while you have the chance, or they might well leave town! Who knows, at any moment I could pull any of them down and re-construct them. If you're bridging till payday, I can reserve things for up to a week.
new in the shop- the purple mist - hammered earrings of recycled metal
He loved the twilight that surrounds
The border-land of old romance;
Where glitter hauberk, helm, and lance,
And banner waves, and trumpet sounds,
And ladies ride with hawk on wrist,
And mighty warriors sweep along,
Magnified by the purple mist,
The dusk of centuries and of song.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
