It’s November! It must be that time again! Time for me to show you what I’ve been finding in stores since September! (Yes, really.)
Honestly? I’ve found a lot of the stores to be a little lacklustre this year. It’s been a little disappointing. But I’ve pulled out the best for you! (Psst! The best was from Fortnum & Mason.)
Especially when I know I have space I want to fill on my tree from last year.
This one’s for you Nerdi! I couldn’t turn them around because there was a shelf stocker watching me!
This one is for all the knitters out there.
This one is for MouseCatFish. Owls are really popular again this year!
I think the parasols are really pretty! But I would want a selection of colours … And for the Northern Hemisphere, they’re a bit tropical!
Ah! This is more Northern Hemisphere! Again though, ALL the colours!
Or these perhaps? Polar Bears are popular again this year too. I guess at least they aren’t decapitated like last year.
Perhaps something that looks like the old fashioned round baubles in my mind? Some hand blown and painted eggs? (Some of these were just master-pieces! And they had the price tags to match.)
What’s left? A fond childhood memory you say? Is a rocking horse good for that?
What about something that reminds you of the season?
You know what? I think I need a stiff drink. How about a Mince Pie Martini?
You can get the recipe and instructions here, and just thank me later!
Relax and Enjoy!
