View from my shop window


Wow, I think it's time to start pruning. Otherwise no-one will be able to see it!

We're getting there folks....

We recycled the old fence palings. I love that we have used a lot of "found" materials. Good for the back pocket too! I'm envisaging a lovely garden area with a table and chairs and lots of pretty flowers. Geraniums would probably work best out there. The only thing waiting to be done on the outside is the little awning that was on the old laundry. Very cute:)

The front of the shop minus light fittings cornices and skirting boards etc. I'm having a bench and stools put in under the windows for my "tea and book nook". The windows and door are from my folks place. They've been there for as long as I can remember, tucked away in the shed.


The studio part....My first pink room! I want to paint the window a bright yellow. It sounds crazy I know but I think it'll work with what I want to do in there. This window is from our old place. It's nice to have it in here.

Just a few more touches and I can start moving in. I'm very keen :)
