I got two days off from restoring and revamping.
Well, not really, got a table and a few other bits that need
some fixing so I took them home so I can work in a warm
environment. Also got some research to do.
I really do need a break, we'd been working even on our
days off lately and yesterday were manic to say the least!
I finished restoring six pieces of furniture and I learned the
art of creating a shabby chic distressed look and after we
closed we went to an amazing Edwardian house (built 1906)
to meet this rich man who wanted to donate a lot of stunning
furniture from the 1930's and a ton of books.
On Friday I will post a picture of the most gorgeous vanity
I ever seen! (He gave away two!) I so wish this house were
bigger, I would so keep it for myself if that was the case. :P
Got some new pictures of the shop after we rearranged it.
Check it out here! (Newest pics first.)
Just before Hanukkah I ordered two craft books for myself.
(They arrived last week.)
I needed a kitsch boost and these really did the trick! :)
I got them both for a song (less than £2 each) from Amazon.

I also got this tape dispenser for £5.99 on eBay.
