I'm dreaming of a white Christmas!

I have been phenominally busy during December leaving little time to blog, tweet and facebook! Its great because I have had bumper sales off both my websites, and have done well at the craft fairs what I have been doing too - so thanks to all for supporting Dolly Cool and In The Pink!

Now that things are a little calmer, and last post day is out of the way - I had chance to go for a lovely snowy walk this morning with my partner, Michael. Here are a few pics I took along the way.....Merry Christmas!

Im lucky to live round the corner from a pretty little park. Here it is, in all its snowy glory!

Me in the park :)

Lovely thick snow, so pretty!

My back garden. I have avoided going out the back, so as not to spoil the snow!! :)

Rhythm Riot

Not blogged for ages - oops! I have been mega busy in the run up to Xmas with craft fairs, website sales and RHYTHM RIOT 50's weekend festival!

Myself and my good buddy Kate went down to Rye on the South East coast of England for some winter sun (!). We stayed at Pontins Camber Sands, which was taken over for the entire weekend by the 50s festival.

I had such a good time, there were amazing bands, cool retro fashion, a classic car show and we had a ride on a restored vintage bus into the quaint town of Rye. I even managed to fit in a sunday craft fair on the site - we had to rush to get our pitch at 7.30am - after being up dancing and drinking unbtil 3am the previous night - Rock n Roll! Here are a few pics from the weekend....

Fabulous restored vintage 50s bus

The Dolly Cool pitch at the VERY busy retro sunday morning sale. Not too much of a close up after only 4 hours sleep!

Kate, Francoise (our new French friend) and I on the Sunday night - Hawaiian themed evening!

The Ray Collins Hot Club - fantastic swing band from Germany. Bit like the Brian Setzer Orchestra - amazing!

Me next to my fave classic car - a pink caddy of course :D
