Spending ages doing not a lot!
I've been to the backend of www.lilymaudvintage.com to make some changes and additions, though nothing you would notice from the front end! Much to my chagrin I have not managed to add any new lovelies to the site - part of the plan for the week was to get some pretty brooches and handmade vintage Christmas cards for you to look at - bit late for those Christmas cards now eh!
As you might imagine, I have a wonderful excuse which can be summed up in two words : Pretty Nostalgic!
Now I must say immediately that I do not think I have been wasting my time in any way by devoting some of it to this wonderful cause - if you want to find out more about Pretty Nostalgic and haven't read my previous blog, then pop over to www.prettyynostalgic.co.uk to discover what you are missing.
I've been trying to think (not helpful to my little brain as some of you might know!!) about how I might get more involved, what I might do to help etc. I am meeting with Nicole at Bristol on Saturday and hope I will have something more to report next time.
I really do not have an excuse for not uploading some pretty jewellery, almost all my brooches and other jewellery has been photographed and the pictures are just sitting here ready for use. The actual jewels are here, next to my desk, in my traveling jewellery case - here's an example or two :
A beautiful porcelain brooch with gold an bronze coloured metal surround from Limoges, France
And a pretty brooch made from pale and dark blue coloured glass stones set in gold coloured metal.
So, the next thing which took my time space today was looking at the landing page of the website and trying to think of some improvements. Hence, long email to Rhys, my long suffering website designer with all my ideas. As usual, he can do exactly what I think I want and so the changes will be made very soon. I trust that will mean it's more welcoming and really make you want to browse.
Today's work time is up now so I'll say goodbye. I'll be back soon with more ramblings! Thanks for reading, please feel free to write a comment, your thoughts, anything you like really - I am not offended easily, honestly!
See you again soon!
