Miss Warburton is trying not to look, but Christmas is coming, and although a certain individual here at the shop hasn't yet started playing her Matt Munro CD on endless rotation, it won't be long now.

But another more agreeable sign of the impending festivities is the arrival today of the fabulously seasonal Trollbead Christmas Collection. It includes two new limited edition glass bead sets, with red and green, and blue and white themes; a beautiful glittering blue bead inlaid with cubic zirconia; misletoe in gold and silver flavours; a new Tiger's Eye bead and a gold heart lock; there's even a really sweet little teddy bear.

Check out the whole range here in our New Season Trollbeads section.

Meanwhile Miss Warburton will be found standing under the miseltoe waiting for her luck to change.
