my colour preferences get a bit obvious when you see it like this...

It is a huge box, I wish I had thought to photograph the clever way in which they packed the stuff, in rolls of corrogated card and paper.
Anyway! As a result of much unwrapping, washing and drying and arranging, I now have a dresser full of my favourite china trios (cup, saucer and plate sets) I may have to blog about some of them , which have lovely stories behind them.
We had lined up a fabric and wallpaper combo originally that was far less eye-catching, but having found the WLW while out buying paint recently, it has been relegated to some future do-up of the office and workroom.
I do sometimes wonder if being able to make one's own soft furnishings is a false economy. I fairly regularly buy two or three fabrics for just one room before committing, instead of paying through the nose for someone else to make them once. Still, the fabrics that get "Klummed" (our word for things that get rejected, c/o Project Runway) generally end up being sold for a good price, or redesignated to other projects.
