Just thought i'd show you a few details of some more assemblages i've been working on...

These two are really funny, i picked them up a few weeks ago at the Sunday market, not sure what i'm going to do with them yet, but they're quite quirky....or maybe scary!!!
Gav and I bought this kitchen unit this afternoon from the Montgomery auction for seventy quid - bargain. We loved the aged look of it and that the inside of the cupboards are blue, it looks fab.  We're really getting on with planning our free standing kitchen, we have two really nice Victorian Housekeeper cupboards which are currently being utilised in the shop.  We've decided to take away a section of the horrible fitted kitchen that was there when we moved in to fit in one of the cupboards, it'll be worth it though.
Here it is with our TG Green wedding presents on it. 
The milk jug and two pots in the cupboards are old TG Green,
the other stuff below it is modern and it all looks gorgeous.
This bit is for dirty laundry apparently!!
Knife marks and hot pot burns from times gone by!
This sign in our shop makes me laugh,
 it's brought a smile to a few people's faces today too
Little potted flowers
Cute little owls
Gav had a gorgeous pink/cream one on the unit,
but he sold it today and replaced it with the 'genie' one you see here. 
We've sold loads of phones lately, Gav can barely keep up with converting them at the moment.
Another view of the shop after our latest deliveries of new stock
Hmmm... our gorgeous Lizzie Wizz after her shower! She's so cute, look at that face, she looked like a punk rocker!
When she jumped in that muddy ditch the other week she didn't clean properly and i noticced when i was brushing her in the garden the other day, that her underneath was still caked in mud, deep in her fur next to her skin and all her hair was matted. 
She doesn't like the shower by the way, you'd have thought she was going to her execution, i had to get in with her in the end!!
