Normally Hume Cottage is closed on a Sunday but we had a special function to present.We had a Bridal Shower in the shop and here is a before photo.We laid out the table for 15 ladies to enjoy tea and coffee while the hostess brought along some yummy food and games to play.
So the ladies shopped and shopped, and Sonia (the bride to be) got 10% of the total sales to spend in the shop.The ladies also put some money in a box for her.So she had a lovely time deciding what to get.
It was a lovely afternoon and the ladies all seem relaxed and enjoyed the pretty surroundings...(although some ladies complained that it was all too tempting spending that much time in a pretty shop and that their budgets would suffer!!hehe)
What a nice afternoon...certainly did'nt feel like work(until the washing up had to be done!)
Catch up with you very soon

Hello again......here's what I have been up to lately...
Picked up these lovely trunks on the weekend.They were already painted white.Good size for a glory box or to store blankets and throws in.
Also picked up this lovely writing desk (which also was already painted..yay)Has crystal handles and knobs and the bottom drawer is a filing cabinet.Very handy.Looks cute with the pink stripe chair I did a while back.Should've have taken the photo in the morning as the sun was coming in..but I guess you get the idea.
Also did a few coathangers.Trying for a more vintage look.I was lucky enough to inherit some lovely vintage laces from my husbands grandmother(who passed away last year)She loved to do craft and I am so glad I have been able to put it to good use.
Have been doing a bit of sewing too...but I'll show you that next time.
See you then

Hi everyone........something very exciting happened in my shop on Saturday!
Sarah from SARAH JANE organised for some bloggers to meet for a Devonshire Tea.I was so excited to meet them and raced around preparing a pretty setting for their arrival along with some yummy cupcakes,scones with jam and cream and fresh strawberries.Yum!
Pretty china trio's, pink tulle ribbons on the chairs.Pink serviettes,candles and silver cutlery were the order of the day.
As you can imagine there was lot's of chatter and excitement as we all got to know each other.
I was busy making tea and chatting that I only took some before photos.
It was especially nice to meet Mandii and Kirstie who came all the way from Victoria and were staying with Sarah for the weekend.Another lovely surprise was to meet Maryanne from marion-deedesigns who was really sweet and travelled to meet us all.Delcie and her friend Sue came from the Blue Mountains,thanks girls.And Vicki did'nt have to travel to far to join us along with my lovely friend Heidi (who doesnt have a blog yet!) who stayed behind to help clean up and wash all that pretty china!Thanks Heids!
What a nice way to spend a morning...what lovely people...think we might have to make this an annual event!
Thanks again Sarah for organising such a fun time.
Catch you next time
