So excited...

...I've just moved bedrooms... since moving in here we've been using one of the smallest rooms in the house as a bedroom (right up on our third floor). This was because we'd been so busy with setting up the shop and, the room we wanted to use as the bedroom was needed to store the stock we'd been buying for the shop before it opened, and then when it did open and we moved all the stock into the shop we then used it to store furniture whilst we were decorating other rooms....phew.....breathe Tina!!!! Anyway, we've been having a few visitors lately and we need a permanent guest room so we decided it was time to get on with organising our nice bedroom. Nicole has decided that she now wants her bedroom to be the one we just moved out guests get a smaller bedroom again, but that's fair because they're not here all the time and only require a room to sleep in, whereas Nicci requires a room to storm away to have "attitude "in, what with being a teenager and all that!!!
The new bedroom is about three times the size of the other one and we've been collecting furniture from various auctions to go in there, it looks fab, i'll take some photos later. To add to the excitement one of our lovely neighbours sold us some gorgeous, unused, Laura Ashley duvet covers and pillow cases in lovely Egyptian Cotton, the price tags were still on them which were over £100 for each duvet and each set of lace curtains, we had two massive, super size duvet covers, four pillow cases, three beautiful lace curtains, a single sheet and various other things, all for...wait for it....£30 BARGAIN OR WHAT???? Each duvet cover and each pillow case comes in it's own matching little bag made of the same fabric and has the same design as cover/pillow cases.....thinking about adding a handle and using it as a handbag...heheheheh!!!!
Ok. so i'll post about that soon and add some photos. But now i want to show you these gorgeous creations from Hannah at Lonely Hearts, who kindly sold us a selection of her gorgeous handbags for the shop and gave us another load of her fab jewellery on sale or return. She delivered them all last friday and they look lovely in the shop.

I toyed with the idea of hanging the handbags around one of the posts in the centre of the shop, but thought they looked nicer scattered around and i sold one within a few hours of her leaving!I displayed her jewellery in with some others and it looks really nice. Unfortunately the jewellery will have to go into locked cabinets soon as we had a lovely expensive necklace stolen a few weeks ago, it's a real shame because they look so nice like this. Hannah made these beautiful combs, rings, button bracelets etc. She also made some lovely necklaces which she calls her "Secret Garden" range showing beautiful flowers and charms (sorry the photograph didn't come out well, so will show it in my next post).

OK, off to to some more organising now and soon off to Craven Arms to pick up Nicci who's been visiting friends.
