...Angels Gather Here...

... A new shipment of angels will be arriving in the Shop this week,

so I have prepared the mantel in readiness ...




... Angel wings with a tiny diamente cross ...



... A pair of white peacocks guard a tall, white jug with

white lilac, iris and chincherinchee ...


... One of the beautiful angel hearts that arrived this week ...



... A second angel heart ...


... Our gorgeous sleeping cherub, Reuben,


with his white rose crown ...


... Something we should all do a little more ...


...Sweet Dreams, Everyone,

...Winter has come to the China Room...

The cold days and frosty nights have made us realise that Winter

is just around the corner...


So...with this in mind...we set the China Room up

in pretty whites and pale shades...


China in shades of white, pale blue, gold and silver...

...dewdrop roses with shimmering crystals hanging from the tree...

...white doves, birds and butterflies...

...a white frosted cake...



...The prettiest white and gold trio with lily-of-the-valley...

...and vintage icy glassware...

...One of my favourite trios...an antique Aynsley...
..it's pastel blooms almost translucent...
...a beautiful piece of artwork forged decades ago...


...The full trio...



...Ice blue and silver...

...Even Bunny looks frosty with his knapsack of white stephanotis...





...White and silver gauzewinged butterflies...


...An "ice bear" peruses the table from his high vantage point...



...His friend watches from the other side of the icy tree...




...Their crystal bodies shimmer in the frosty light...





...Hope you are keeping warm...


Big shimmering-frosty-ice-bear love,
