So I have been a bit behind on the blogging, this time of the year really starts to get a bit crazy. We are busy keeping up with Spring orders and new products, and starting our Christmas production, we have some lovely new treats for this years festive season. we are even starting to plan this years Marche Rouge Christmas market and our first classes, which will be Victorian style Christmas decorations. We have sourced lots of beautiful Dresden embossed, die cut papers and German glass glitter & lameta for authentic looking decorations (they won't be in store fore for another 2-3 weeks, we are just finalising some packaging)
We are also almost ready to go to print with lovely new labels for all of our l'uccello products, we can't wait to see it all together at last.
But the biggest story in store at the moment is the rapidly approaching Spring Carnival, while you are sleeping many of our fabulous milliners are busy creating their magical creations so all the ladies and gents look their glamorous best at the track this year.
Just in time we received a huge new delivery of the glorious blooms, lots of lovely silk lovelies in a whole rainbow of colours.
Speaking of rainbows I have seen more rainbows in the last few weeks than I have in the last few years, and not ordinary wimpy rainbows, enormous, vibrant, isn't nature unbelievable rainbows. This is another one today from our balcony, I sure it is a good omen.
