4th Day of Christmas - Visiting Miss Leah's Boutique

 Hello Everyone,

"On The Twelve Days of Christmas, Miss Holly will be visiting Regent Street to bring joy and wonder during the magical time of Christmas. "

Miss Holly today was really excited. Today she was visiting Miss Leah at her Boutique. The ladies have been friends since they were little girls. Holly was two years her senior and spent most of their time together. Growing up, both the girls were thought by Madam De France how to design and sew gowns and clothing. Years passed and young Leah had left for Regent Street to join her siblings in the family business. Holly missed her best friend dearly and after a couple of years she moved also to Regent Street.

Holly prepared something special for Leah. When they were younger they had designed a bonnet together but it never materialized. So Holly spend the night before working the magic to make this special bonnet for Leah. 

It was getting late in the evening and Miss Holly made her way to the boutique. Miss Leah's Boutique still had a client or two which was not surprising considering the lovely gowns and lady's accessories that it offered. The second Holly stepped into the shop she was greeted by her dearest friend with a smile and a warm hug. Both the ladies were very happy to see each other.

Once the last client left the shop, Leah closed the boutique for the day so she could spend some time with her dear friend. Holly handed over a hat box to Leah and with an exciting smile she asked her dear friend to open it. 

Leah was very curious to see what was in the hat box and once opened, so very unexpected, she found the beautiful Christmas Bonnet that was once designed by both of them.

Miss Leah recognized it immediately. It brought tears to her eyes. Miss Holly had done such an amazing job on the bonnet. She fetched a hat stand so she could display the masterpiece on her counter. She couldn't be more proud of Holly and thanked her for such a lovely gift. 


Holly was so happy that Leah loved it. It looked wonderful on the shop counter. The red Christmas bonnet did the trick and gave the shop a touch of Christmas. 

The ladies spent the evening in each other's company at the boutique, going through lady's accessories, sipping tea and reminiscing of when they were young girls. 

This is all for today until the next time. Keep tuned for the next Twelve Days of Christmas at Regent Street.

Take Care and See You Soon.
