a perfectly snowy start to the Christmas season.
We had a party!
We love a good party, this one was to introduce our friends and family to our beautiful new shop. Having fretted that nobody would come, we had 148 signatures in our visitors book of the bravest of the brave, intrepid in the extreme on the coldest night of the year so far. The snow fell beautifully in tiny crisp granules as if for effect not wetting nor settling.
Thank you all those who came, we had such a happy time.
Delicious canapes provided by our dear Ross Jordan, exquisite roast beef, smoked salmon and the dearest little chocolate Christmas puddings. Tony and Sarah Palmer provided the best roast chestnuts I have ever eaten perfect little warm bags to thaw frozen fingers (firstname.lastname@example.org). Going home presents were handkerchiefs printed with a 1954 map of London highlighting CABBAGES & ROSES growing chain of shops.
