Red Sky at Night / A New Book


And the theme is 
Red Sky at Night


Coincidentally I went out to play last night.
And I wore red.
(not last night's actual sky lol. It's from google images..from  a science website)


It was all in honour of this cool new book...

...the book launch last night in aucks.

Two of my sisters-in-law..
There was a third there at some stage!

This lovely guy talked about his memories of working for Crown Lynn for 20 or 30 years, and of the big Crown Lynn daddy Tom Clark, whose wife Trish was there..
He said they were the best years of his life.. Had some great stories..


Here I am feeling a bit star struck with Val, the author.. She was lovely!

Happy Days!!

And by the way, if you're a Crown Lynn enthusiast, you should get your hands on this book!!

Linking up to Shiny T Tuesday as I said before..Check my mate Jane out in her fantastic redness!

So just popping back in to tell you I have been reading about Crown Lynn. Very interesting about the history of the company and how they changed to produce tableware and crockery.

XOXO

You are a lucky lady - I wish I could have been there. Please repeat some of the stories that were told.
I've read my copy already and it is fantastic.

Lucky you! I saw the book today and used all my willpower not to buy it! I'll have to wait till my birthday for a copy, it looks like it will be worth it though!
