I have in the past few months, been busy making cushion covers, linen bags, and lots of goodies for a lovely lady called Joasia who was going to open a shop. Her idea was to have a shop that sold nearly all handmade items . How many shops do you visit now that have the same items in, commercially made – pretty as they are they can become a little boring.
The shop opened last week and when I opened the door it was a delight to meet Joasia and her lovely shop. It was full of beautiful things and to see all the items I had made dotted about the shop was really exciting.
The mix of handmade items, cards, candles in pretty vintage cups (made by Joasia) stunning handbags jewellery it was a shop that if you ever get the chance to visit the Cotswolds then it is an absolute must. Its called the Perfect Whimsy and is situated in the village of Northleach in between Burford and Cheltenham.
I am now busy with lots more ideas for the shop – I have to say busy inside my head as this weekend all I feel like doing is curling up in front of the fire!
A delivery!!I wish Joasia all the success in the world and I think she will do really well as it so different and she is a lovely lady.
Next week I am hoping for some good news but that’s another story. I have been blogging now for nearly a year and have to say that I am really enjoying it, I know some people can be very sniffy about people that blog – they say it is a form of showing off - but I have to disagree I think it is lovely to hear about other peoples life's their interests their ups and downs, and I feel I have made so many blog friends, it also stops you being lonely when you live in the middle of nowhere.
So to thank all you lovely people who follow me and leave such lovely comments I have decided to do a give-away when I reach the magic number of 100 followers so watch this space!
