Yesterday Alexandra and I ventured out into the madness that is pre-Christmas shopping to try to achieve some gift shopping. First stop was the hardware store to take care of some of the male variety of our family. After this was achieved we made our way to Highfields, a lovely little village on the edge of the mountain range near our city. Two lovely ladies have opened a delightful shop there.......
Can you guess who?
Of course, the lovely Cathy Penton of Simple Things Small Joys and the equally delightful Angela Osment of Chelsea Blue Whispers. What a wonderful way to Christmas shop. The shop is as I thought it would be - stunning! When I find and visit truly beautiful places like this my head spins and I find it hard to concentrate - what to choose, what to look at first!! I am taking BJ back this afternoon to have a coffee at this lovely little centre and of course visit Simple Things Small Joys again!!
Even down to the most beautiful packaging and a beautiful little surprise in my bag when I got home - a beautifully presented postcard.
So really, my shopping wasn't at all stressful. I chose some lovely gifts from some lovely people and only had to face the chaos of the large shopping centre for such a short time.
Thank you Angela and Cathy for providing such a beautiful shop! I hope your venture is both successful and enjoyable for you. Blessings to you both.
