Well 2010 started off very cold with ice and snow and has continued.We are now in the worst winter conditions since 1981. Now for the life of me I can not remember that winter. But then I was 21 and spent most nights going out - a little bit of snow never stopped me then!
Used to wear a long sued fur lined coat and a pair of sued fur lined boots that had a high heel - but I never slipped over. Jeans that you had to lie on the floor to do up with a coat hanger, all finished with a floaty cheesecloth top. Jewellery was loads of metal Indian bangles, several pairs of earrings, studs and a pair of dangling ones. A single necklace usually a charm on a leather band. Those were the days.........
This is the palm tree outside our kitchen and some of the garden.
Can you see the garden furniture - its buried somewhere!
We cleared the path to get to the bird table but it soon snowed over again
Our cats do not like this weather and here they are - the heating pipes run under this carpet bit.
Our dog however loves the snow and jumps around like a puppy.
After our Christmas break, we have just photographed over a hundred pieces of vintage jewellery, findings and beads. In the next few days we will be adding them to Jewels and Finery
