Two posts in one day – I’m really spoiling you!
I just have to share something beautiful that I ordered when I thought/hoped I would get the premises I applied for. The Tree House will, as I’ve said, be a homely, humble affair – secondhand furniture, no sweeping mahogany counter but probably a desk with a till on it, mismatched bookshelves, etc. But I want to offset that with a few choice furnishings that will give it a bit of individuality and character – the artist-designed logo is fabulous, the origami roses are perfect, and now I have a gorgeous craftsman-made shelf, which I will put behind the till area when I have the shop. It’s made by the company White Dove & Wonder, who make things out of antique shoe lasts – click on the name to see other wonderful things. I love wood, and shoe lasts are such beautiful, satisfying things.
Not very well photographed, but taken in my out-of-the-box excitement! Can’t wait to have a shop so that I can show it off properly.
