We are all tizzied up and ready for the holiday rush!

I can be quite creative when I put my mind to it....
so when I spotted some Deer antlers I bought the lot 
with decorating the shop in mind.... and after some 
tizzying with calico
Here is one of the pairs....

Would look great hanging from the mantle over a fireplace.
I have three of these in different sizes
and 5 singles.....

I also got my sewing arm on and, after seeing Judes bunting
I learnt how to make them with the easy step by step guide 
thanks Josie Crafter!
So with the help (or hinderance) of my 12 year old son, Mackenzie
 (he had to do the sewing machine pedal)
I made two lots of 5 metres for the shop windows.

Here is the finished product with a set of antlers....

And the other window..... sorry for the glare!

Back to tempting you now.... here is 
a lovely Wembley Ware Lobster Dish..... 
unusual in the green.

Westminster Old English Roses Milk Jug, Sugar Bowl
and Cake Plate

Royal Winton Gravy Boat and Apple Sauce Dish.....

Stuart Crystal Water Jug and Glass set - with the 
original stickers.... doesn't look like its been used....

Three Sandland Ware pieces, Milk Jug & Sugar Bowl
and Pin Dish.....

22 carat Milk Jug & Sugar Bowl set - as new

Anyhow I hope you have a great week!
Pop into the shop and have a closer look when you can.

We celebrate 2 years in business on Sunday!!

Wow, how time flys when you are having fun!
In this economic climate we are lucky to have survived
however we can say that WE HAVE!!

So on Sunday 13th November we will be celebrating
 our 2nd birthday.

Here are some of the new pieces in store now.....

Lovely Edwardian Marble topped Washstand, complete
 with original tiles and mirror and display shelf.
Wouldn't this be lovely plumbed
 in a traditional bathroom.

Now this 19th century Bayonet Training Mask is a very unusual piece.
Thought to be either English or early Australian 
it has the Broadarrow and some letters stamped on it. 
The padding is stuffed with Horse Hair and the mask
 is hand crafted in steel and leather.
More information will be added soon....

Original Australian Pogo Stick
complete with tassles!

1940s/50s Ginger Meggs Chalkware in

I have had a few Ginger Megs rugs in the shop 
but this would have to be the best of them so far.

This is a lovely Art Deco Glass Desert Bowl set in a Sage Green
Perfect for any occasion.

Hope you all have a great week!
