High Tea again this Saturday....boy does it come around fast.This time I will try to remember to take some photo's of before and during.Vicki is making some homemade chutney, jam and pesto and is also selling it on the day.Nothing like fresh homemade goodies!!

Love this print from Gail.I had such a hard time picking which ones to buy for the shop....and I have to admit I took one home.I 've been very restrained so far....but every now and then I give in!It will look lovely in our new extension.We are getting very close now, we are up to watch this space for some updated photo's.

These are just as lovely!

This is a pic of the table for two in the window.Looks inviting does'nt it?I made the centrepiece from some posey's in the shop and put them in a round box (that normally houses a cup saucer set)and glued some flower braid around the middle to disguise the writing.I wish we could have real flowers but these will do in the meantime.

Some pretty coat hangers on a painted bedside.Coat hangers make such a pretty and practical gift dont you think?
Well that is all my news for now.Catch you next time!

long time blog


Surely it has'nt been 22 days since my last post....goodness me..I've been slack!!

Well I better get to it and show you some goodies, but before I do , the high tea went extremely well and we are now doing them once a month.The first Saturday of each,the next one(1st August)is coming up quickly and the bookings are coming fast.It was so much fun, I think I was on a high for about a week after!

Since I last posted I have been to another gift fair, and some new goodies have been trickling their way in.I got some lovely garlands and posies to make the shop prettier.I have wrapped them around my ugly curtain rods.Makes a big difference, really frames the window.

I also have been busy doing up some chairs.Sorry I forgot to take a before photo of this one.The fabric is so pretty , originally the chair was dark timber with a rust colour velvet on it.Much nicer dont you think? Next to the chair is a bench seat that I also got from the fair.

A lovely birdcage on a stand that I wrapped some more rose garland around and made a nice tassel to go on top.Next to it is a lamp I decorated as well.Both have been lay byed.

Some new pretty spoons also arrived.I got extras to use for the high teas.
Well that's all for now, till next time.
