Here are two bloggers who know how to keep Christmas well. The handsome one in the green shirt is Mike Murphy, author of Smoke and Mirrors. The intelligent looking one on the left is your humble scribe.
Michael shares my love of the traditional: fountain pens, leather backed volumes, pipes, and pocket watches enjoy a special place in his heart just as they do in mine, and there is something very Dickensian about working at an old tobacconist’s, where the sights, and especially the smells, can still transport you to another century.
Merry Christmas to all!
