Cowboys and Indians

Good morning everyone!  If you've visited my blog over the weekend you may have noticed a few subtle changes - the Cute Kids Clocks Blog is no more....  welcome to Buy Handmade British!!!  Other than the new URL and new title at the top, the blog is exactly the same, I just decided it was time to change the title to something which better reflected the blog content.  Let's face it, it's been a while since I mentioned my clocks.  Eventually there will be a Buy Handmade British website with more content (and lots more free advertising for crafters) with the aim of taking unsuspecting internet shoppers and guiding them into the world of buying handmade.  

Back in the present, this week is all about different fiction genres.  We're starting with Westerns and we're embracing all the cliches - the dusty frontier town, the mysterious stranger, the nasty cattle man with his band of men who run the town, the pleasant but ineffectual old sheriff and feisty, beautiful school teacher who spurns the cattle man's advances and convinces the stranger to confront the baddies and bring law and order back to the town.  Now the scene's set, let's begin.
