Winter Solstice

Today is the shortest day or the longest night, whichever takes your fancy.  It means from here on in the days are gradually filled with more light and hopefully sunlight.  There are still chilly days to come, warm winter scarves, open fires, red wine, quinces, and solitary walks along my favourite beach but with the promise of warmer days to come.

When I look around my beautiful shop the late afternoon rays of light flood into the spaces between the furniture and give everything a romantic look.  The chandeliers twinkle brighter, the warm comfy salons look inviting and I'm often tempted to curl up on the Napoleonic day bed in the winter like a cat having an afternoon nap in the sun.... mmm.  but customers await!
