Here's a little story for you all, the space that we all know as old Ruby was once a florist, this florist is where the flowers for my Mother's wedding bouquet were purchased, neat huh?
Well congratulations to my beautiful role models, here's to many more years of love and happiness.

Swallow Guardians

video

After closing big Ruby, much of the things i kept went into storage. My brother is storing most of it in his garage loft until the day i finally have room to resurrect it all.

Today i went to retrieve a few things only to find that my boxes and covered furniture are being guarded by a family of little swallows.
As the RB logo is a swallow i felt all emotional and goosepimply about the wonderful symbolic nature of this discovery.

Although you can't see them darting around on the video above, their guarding song is beautiful, warning all who enter the loft that they are protecting precious and beloved treasure.

I'm glad and extremely thankful that someone is there to keep my beautiful belongings company, safe, and out of harms reach.

Something Old

My favourite piece of jewellery in stock at the moment has to be these cute little clip on earrings.
Anyone know anyone getting married any time soon, these little treasures would be the perfect 'Something Old' right?

R.I.P Amy


I realise this post is a little late, but i'm still devastated about the sad loss of a young musical icon.
Amy Winehouse has been a huge part of my musical listenings ever since 2003 when my sister bought me her debut album 'Frank'. Since then i've been lucky enough to experience her music live on more than one occasion, a truly amazing experience that will surely not be forgotten.

Her music was often heard blasting out of old RB, and will most definitely still be heard blasting out of my stereo for many years to come.
Thank you Miss Amy Winehouse, may you rest in peace. You sent me flying.
