Shop photos



Having just visited Niki @ http://nostalgiaatthestonehouse.blogspot.co.uk/ and  being very inspired and amazed by photos her lovely shop I thought I would post some recent photos of my shop, before it has a well needed makeover.This will of course give me a good excuse to take up residence in the local auction room and buy some more furniture.This is going to be a terrible hardship as I  really hate buying' junk and old lady furniture' as my son Harry refers to my past purchases.I'm not going to make any huge changes but it just needs a bit of a facelift and a bit of imagination.I love the patchwork table cover/bedspread which was an ebay bargain a long time ago.....


Lots of pretty pastels

I;m going to paint my kitchen cupboard a pretty cornflower blue
The childrens corner is a bit lightweight and I am trying to decide what to buy or make next....
I made this bunting out of an old ladybird book called Five little kittens.I am going to make some to sell.
I've made the photos larger but I'm afraid the quality is not brilliant.I really don't care much for this camera.It's not as good as my last one.I am going to have to invest in a better one.....plus the light has not been very good of late, in fact the sun has gone on a sabbatical and is currently having a gap year the other side of the Gulf stream!
Anyway,I hope you enjoyed having a look.If you are in Pickering do pop in.There is a map on my shop website but it's right in the heart of Pickering.Talking of websites mine has ben very badly neglected but now I have the time to put my energy into it -I am going to get Gary & Cheryl @www.design-farmstudio.co.uk   to give my website a facelift too. Lots of new beginnings in the pipeline,I wonder should I get a face lift too lol!!!

Hi Anne, great to 'see' you! Your shop is so pretty already - can't wait to see the 'after' shots. I bought a decent little camera on Ebay for under £40 and it works a treat. I'd really love a high-end one but this will do in the meantime. It does everything I want it to! Here is a link to my friend Nicky's shop, which she's also just made over. I love her new wallpaper. Hope it helps.
