Among the recent orders I have received was one from a lovely returning customer who purchased these two special occasion dresses, as well as a pair of bubble shorts. They are now on their way to their new home.
It is inevitable that with the warmer weather arriving, the Christmas shopping season as has commenced, if the department stores and supermarkets are to be our guides. What a surprise.
Along with clothing orders, I have been preparing for the Christmas rush by making Christmas tree garlands which are always popular in the two months leading up to Christmas.
The traditional red and green ties have always been available, but in the last couple of seasons I have added aqua ties for those who like something a little different. They are particularly popular among those who are fortunate enough to spend Christmas in the midst of summer.
I don't know if it's a sign of entering the let's say more mature phase of life, but I take particular delight in witnessing the pure joy and excitement of young children when they spy Santa for the first time, or stare in wonderment at department store Christmas window displays. Pure gold.
The backs are just as pretty. They are made of a lovely soft grey fabric which falls so beautifully, and the skirts are extra full. If you know of two little sisters who you are dying to outfit in co-ordinating special occasion dresses, look no further.
And now back to those trees.
