We are marching headlong towards December and Christmas is peeking it's Santa bearded face around the corner.
I'm in the process of dropping hints.
I've thought loads about the children's gifts and building up the Christmas memories for them.
Now I'm thinking about me.
I was recently introduced to http://myhigh.st/ and it's 'feel good shopping' experience.
Just perusing all their offerings definitely made me feel good.
Here's just a snippet of what I'm liking...
1. The Gallery Norfolk - Cargo Ship Salthouse Print £180:00 Cromer, Norfolk
2. Lunartique - Elementals Bracelet £19:50 Bristol
3. Trowbridge Gallery - White Mug £6:00 Castle Cary, Somerset
4. Chi Chi Moi - Dorothy Tea Cosy £25:00 Wells, Somerset
5. The Place Coffee Shop - liquorice & peppermint Teapigs £4:49 Castle Cary, Somerset
The idea behind myhigh.st is recognising the fact that people like to support independent shops and help local economies. The website brings a range of localities and businesses together so we can buy direct from these traders whether they are locally on our doorstep or further afield.
My idea of 'local' spreads it's wings far.
Back to my home county of Norfolk.
The image of Salthouse reminds me of my late dad who always had paintings of churches hanging at home - this one has a modern twist though, not sure he would approve of it but I love it.
Numbers 3, 4 and 5 sit perfectly together and number 2 completes the image in my head of me enjoying a warming cup of tea, with a beautiful bracelet adorning my wrist whilst admiring some modern art hanging on the wall.
What's on your wishlist?
