I oh so LOVE our blog BANNER!

Thanks so much to CURLYPOPS for our fabulous blog makeover!  We've been so busy with moving and unpacking and setting up, then shuffling, then re-arranging, that our little blog had become quite neglected.

We hope to keep you up-to-date with new arrivals, news, nonsense and our  ever evolving beautiful new home.
Sel from the ESSESS  came in today to unwind and do some pricing, we're a little weary from such a busy weekend of moving more retro and vintage furniture, cleaning it all up then finding places for it all to fit.  The collectible pieces are ggggorgeous, and when I remember to A. charge my camera batteries, and B. put the memory card back into the camera,  then I can finally show you what I'm on about!

Sel's mum has created a great little succulent garden out the back, beside the pond, and next visit, plans to add a herb garden-LOVE herb gardens.

Froggies are sitting lazily by the pond, waiting for  us to give it a good clean out, and add a few water plants.

We're starting to settle in a little more, we have comfy chairs, and these great tables just arrived yesterday, compliments of our new friend Michelle, we're looking forward to catching up with her again to talk retro......and our pidgeon hole front desk is filling up quickly with all sorts of oddities, whimsy and fantastical items, so much to see, lots of  'ooohs' and 'aaaahs' and a bit of 'my grandma had one of those' and 'why did I throw out my 70's patchwork purple leather platform shoes???'

All in all, a great first week......hope your week is enjoyable, let us know about interesting finds or info about our favourite topics - RETRO & VINTAGE

the pigeon holes are especially popular! We have them on loan from Sophie Pickle who will eventually move them into her sewing room in her home. That will be a sad day here at Big House :(
