The Selkie's Haunt New Look

As promised, you can see here the new look for The Selkie's Haunt. I have brightened and added colour to the painting of the Selkie and given the background a lovely light grey parchment effect. I'm very pleased with how this has turned out and hope you agree.

One thing I don't have for you is new designs - yet! I have been working on the fine jewellery so I can get it to the Assay Office, and as of Monday, I will be able to turn my attention to the copper and bronze jewellery. It will be a quick turnaround, as no hallmarking is required. Once the piece is made, a quick photo, and, voila, it's on the website. If you would please give me minimum of another 10 days to two weeks, that would be wonderful. Chris has been feeling less and less energetic and likes to spend most afternoons resting, and I like to spend that time with him. He is will always come first. But I promise you lovely designs in the weeks to come.

We have been enjoying beautiful weather here for the last week. I know I have truly acclimatised to Scotland, as I now find a day with temperatures hovering around 80 degrees Fahrenheit as far too hot and overwhelming. What a wimp! This from a gal who lived for years and years in the DC suburbs! The humidity isn't even at 100 percent. How could I possibly find the heat oppressive. Amazing what 20 years in the UK can do.

As I said, I hope you like the new image of the Selkie and I hope you will love the new designs when they are posted. I will send a quickie email from MailChimp to let you know when the images have been uploaded.

And, as always, thank you for your interest in The Selkie's Haunt.
