The Big Launch


The launch of the new Radiance went really really well. I had a wonderful day! I hadn't finished making the open sign yet but people got the mesage and LOTS of people came!




My friend Rachel was the photographer for the day. What lovely pictures!

There was pink champagne and surprise flowers...

There were friends who popped in and friends who stayed all day. It was so lovely to have everyone there and see so many friendly faces.



Lucy and the Caterpillar came to play us sing us some of her lovely songs. Thanks Lucy!


The birdies kept an eye on things from their new perch...

and we had a visit from their creator Joanna Coupland.



We also had a surprise visit from Helen Musselwhite who brought this AMAZING papercutting inside a bell jar AND a 'We are family ' papercut picture. How lovely!

All in all it was a real celebration. Thanks to everyone who came and thanks to everyone who couldn't make it but were there in spirit. Thankyou for all your lovely cards, beautiful flowers, yummy cakes and chocolates.

I am one happy lamp shop lady!

What a great shop and beautiful shades you produce. I was intrigued by your lovely building so I had a look at it on Google Earth street view. It shows up really well. I enjoyed my visit to Hebden Bridge...lol.
