rose feather

I am literally overwhelmed with excitement, i have just got back from a long thrifting trip with my mum, i love thrift store trips, oxfam had 70% off everything and believe me i went crazy in there.
Oh back to the excitement i have just purchased my domain name for my new shop, once i have it all set up and sorted and i have a sale over at RubyRaeLove it will be all ready.
I am been worrying over that name for about 2 months now. Me and mum were sat outside our favorite tea shop in town, part of the name of the shop i have chosen has feather in it, i wasn't too sure on the name. I had 2 to choose from, then a white feather falls from the sky. Bingo fate chose it for me. This was also a little weird because when my grandma died about 4 years ago she wrote in her eulogy that when ever i was worried or needed to talk she would always be there, she told me to look for the white feather and she would help. So i had no choice but to go for the name. Others may call it coincidence but i am pretty sure it wasn't. I bought a beautiful 100% cotton floral shirt in the charity shop for 25p, the flowers above were created by my mum, she's a florist and the flowers are from our allotment, the english heritage roses smell of fizzy jerks (those sweets you use to get as kids) my favorite smell, if i could bottle it and share it with everyone i would.
