On Sunday it was my birthday and our first day of actual ownership, so we had a working bee with cake, and many wonderful friends turned up to help rearrange the entire shop. Of course, I didn't know where to begin so I was very relieved when my dear friend Ross turned up and took over. Ross who designed my fabulous kitchen and is a spatial genius. He also somehow managed to avoid being in any photos!
The amazing Sarah took lots of photos that delight me so I'm just going to pop a whole lot in here to hopefully delight you too:
Perfect white hearts. I think they are a bit odd but come Christmas time we're going to have fun turning them into beautiful tree decorations
Cane, cane, cane.
Craft or alchemy?
I love the heads! The wall below it is now completely different, and crammed with crafty goodness :)
Lots and lots of ways to string beads, pendants and bone carvings.
My indulgence - little sugar paste flowers. Claire and Zoe donned gloves and bagged these up for the shop.
Action shot. Me at counter doing??? The Embroidenator cleaning a window sill. And she is teaching 3D flower making too! What a mother, what a woman! :)
So this is where I am every day. It's fun and hard and fabulous and scary all at once. No wonder I am tired ;-)
