I have just come back from a lovely evening in a local restaurant where a very nice lady just relaunched a line of French and Italian handbags and jewellery that she will be selling through her shop Mowanis (www.mowanis.co.uk). I was tempted by some fabulous Mulberry like bags but as I need to get a car first I kept my wallet in my coat. I did however buy a lovely flower ring to cheer me up on a rainy day such as today. My friend Rosana made the painting and the designs for the gorgeous invitations. You'll find her beautiful portraits at www.rosanaibarrola.co.uk.
