Dear Emma and the wonderful artist Marilyn Andrews.
Emma thank you for organising for my husband (Jono) to get a painting direct from Marilyn, it was a really fabulous idea and a very special one.
To Marilyn when I received the painting, it was really funny, the first thing I noticed was Kia Teri of course but the second thing I said was 'oh wow that looks like dad's boat'. It couldn't have been more perfect. I have had so many amazing Christmas holidays in Kia Teri that it is my happy place and nothing around the world exceeds it.
I now have it on my wall in my kitchen and it's so nice to see it first thing in the morning and when it's grey outside. Although at times I just want to jump into the picture.
Thanks so much and when I'm back next, hopefully I get up to the Nelson area I will visit the gallery and see what else I can post back to London.
Hope you both have a happy and sunny Christmas.
When Im in MAPUA, NELSON, NZ I always pop into The Coolstore Gallery as they have a varied and indeed topline of NZ craft / art products .. their staff are very helpful and the owner Patricia Tricia Morrison is always willing to go that little bit further to ensure a pleasant shopping experience .. next time youre visiting NELSON make sure you check out The Coolstore Gallery ..it lives up to its name ..
My beloved and I dropped by today on the way back to Christchurch from Golden Bay to buy our wedding rings. We just wanted to say that not only did we enjoy having a good peruse of the wares but we were assisted ably in our selection of the rings. I'm sorry that we didn't get the assistant's name but she was very knowledgeable, personable and a real boon in sorting us out.
Sadly I'm not in charge of the New Years Honours List, but she'd be nominated for a place, mid-table if I was. Good shops need people like her.
Good morning Emma,
The Dasler sets were delivered this morning and are dazzling me! Beautiful and lively they are. The teal set is my favourite.
Actually an attempt to deliver at 7:24 am yesterday failed as my gate was locked at that time so I rearranged for delivery this morning. Excellent fast delivery with PBT .Thank you for choosing a reliable courier.
And thank you for a nice smooth online order.
With kind regards,
