Some snippets

Just a few little snippets of the tiny shop, more tomorrow
I love to save my jam jars for pretty storage.

This is the top of a small pine bookcase that I repainted to make the room look lighter.I bought the little blackboard at BHS in Brighton, It was £6 reduced from £15!

The lovely crinoline lady picture was £2 at a car boot sale last summer.It looks like a stitched picture but it's not, its paint on silk, I love it! Of course they both need to go up on the wall.

The little birds are hanging where my curtains should be, I've washed them but haven't got around to rehanging them yet

This white shelving unit cost £2 at the boot.Bargain.It's perfect for small stuff.

I shall show you more tomorrow

I noticed your comment on vinatge Amethyst - I agree with you, painting a dresser would be a pain in the neck. We stripped ours back (years of green and orange paint, not guilty) and just painted the back. Maybe you could try that first?

I save all my jam jars for little bits too, so much easier than buying something else to store them in and pretty too.

You have some really beautiful things.
