KEEPING YOU IN TOUCH - YOUR FREE MONTHLY NEWSPAPER DELIVERED DOOR-TO-DOOR FOR 32 YEARS 'Andessa'


Where there’s something to suit every wish and every pocket


Welcome back to my little article of whimsy and sparkles, it’s great to be typing here again! I can barely believe that almost ten whole months of this year have flown by in such a blur. Autumn has yet again taken its colourful hold on us and I have to admit, that I can no longer ignore two realisations, Christmas is coming, as is the end of yet another decade!


For Christmas dinner this year, I’ve decided on a BBQ (whatever the weather!) in my new back garden. I moved house this week, so if you can smell charcoal, herbs and salmon skewers on 25th December, you’ll know I’m your new neighbour! Last year, I made my son and I our traditional fish finger sandwiches, but I am feeling like a change to see out the twenty-teens, so a BBQ it is! Another decade done and this year marked the fact I have been residing as a Cockermouth girl for a decade. Does that make me a ‘local’ yet I wonder? … answers on a postcard!


Anyway, I digress, enough of the random chit chat… Christmas; this month, I have pictured lots of lovely stocking fillers and affordable gifts from my fabulous earring range, plus some lovely expensive ones, so there really is something to suit every taste and every budget!


So, with the minefield of potential panic gift buying approaching – I’m bringing back the ‘hint hint’ list. It’s a failsafe plan! You call in, tell me your name, pick 3 things you like, I make a note, then you send your gift purchaser in my direction…. they can surprise you with a secret selection from your list. Easy, plus they don’t even have to wrap it up, as that’s one of my favourite things to do. I get very involved in making wrapping an art form, a bit like that scene with Rowan Atkinson and the gold heart necklace in my favourite festive film Love Actually!


Next month, on Saturday 16th, I will be celebrating 6 years to the day of ‘Andessa’ and this year has definitely been my most favourite yet. I have been very lucky to have such loyal support locally and I’ve gained some amazing friendships along the way, thanks to my little purple painted Main Street emporium. It has been truly rewarding and humbling seeing customers again and again, watching engagements turn to weddings, families, babies, birthdays, anniversaries and more. Thank you for letting me be a little sparkly part of your world. Here’s to the next 6 years of adventures, stories, sparkles and love.


Love and Sparkles, Tessa
