You might have noticed in the past month that I've been quiet on the blog front. Well, there's been a great reason for it.I have been busy unloading two new containers of delicious treasures...Heaven :-) As well as moving into and setting up my shop.
Stressful, rewarding and at times a but surreal. I almost need to pinch myself every now and then. It has been quite a fast journey to say the least. They say if you do what you love and love what you do it will flourish, and that it has.
I have been so inspired by others that have this passion such as Rachel Ashwell from the Shabby Chic® brand and Claudia Strasser from The Paris Apartment. I love looking at their websites and dreaming over their books. This has always come with some frustration as it is near to impossible to find all that French furniture in New Zealand and to bring just a few pieces from abroad is very expensive.
I will be working very hard to bring the loveliest treasures I can find to dress the beautiful homes of New Zealand at a reasonable price.
It has worked well having my home as my showroom it has just outgrown my small abode so hence the move.
It is a long awaited dream come true. As well as a lot of hard work. Although in saying that it's not like work as I love it. The hard part as any mother would know is juggling it with looking after a home and still being a good Mother to my beautiful children.
Here are some photos of my work in progress and some of my new treasures.
