The countdown is on for the High Tea this Saturday.We are getting great feedback from the customers and bookings are coming fast.Check out Vicki's blog for some pic's of what they used to serve in the cafe,and some pic's of the cafe itself.
A while back I bought this old round table and got hubby to paint the legs white.Does'nt it look inviting.
Will check back later in the week, and we will try to remember to take some photo's on Saturday to show you.
Have a great day!

High tea at Hume Cottage

Some very exciting news...........Vicki and David from The Silver Teapot are presenting a high tea at Hume Cottage.When????

Saturday 4th July
12pm - 3.30pm
$20 per head (introductory rate)
So looking forward to it...should be so much fun playing tea party's!

A few weeks ago I went out to their house and came home with some charred silver(from the cafe's fire) they were going to sell in the garage sale.I could'nt resist.... so have been busy polishing away to my hearts content.This is how they are starting to come up.May need to do a few more polishes.What do you think? Almost good enough for royalty lol.

I also had to decorate some baskets for a customer.So here's the before.

And after.They are to go in a cabinet that has them as drawers.Should be cute!

What else have I got to show you......some pretty new cushions that came in today.Pink of course.

Cant remember if I have shown this pretty shoe before or not.Is'nt it lovely?
Well that's a bit of an update.Hope all has been well in your world!

I was up on a ladder in the shop changing a light bulb and thought I'd take a few pic's of the shop while I was up there to give you an idea of what it looks like at the moment.....I say at the moment because I am forever moving things around,trying to make it look even prettier.

I love the old cast iron bed and it looks nice in the middle

Here is my newset addition, a lovely dressed up mannequin.

I have been decorating some tie backs for a customer,I hope she likes them.I also had to make a few small rose tassels for another lady and thought I'd share them with you.

This is another new addition, a lovely old dressing table.I've decided to leave it timber, as not everyone wants white.It adds a bit of warmth, especially at the moment,we need it...it's really cold.
I will try to remember to take some more photos of our reno this weekend.It's looking fab!
Have a lovely weekend,
