gennamaria online shop update...

this is just one of several vintage watches and keys that will be in the etsy shop very soon!

a rather royal affair!

yesterday was the royal wedding of wills and kate - myself and matt and some good friends went down to royal victoria park in bath to celebrate! After getting the timings wrong by about half and hour, just making it for the 'i do' we set up the bunting, blankets and banquet! i had the most fun day, there was a beatles tribut band, and orchestra and lots of gin in a cans and pimms!
oh and kate looked beautiful! - her dress will be my inspiration!
