Change of Plans


Even the best laid plans fail.  Yesterday I confidently announced here on the blog that we would be installing our beautiful new window displays today.  Well, unfortunately it didn't happen due to one piece not arriving as it was planned to.  It missed the truck.  So, our new windows will have to wait for one more week whilst the lovely antique chest of drawers makes it's way up from Melbourne. 

In place of our new window display, here's a picture of our old window display.  The chest of drawers has sold but look at the lovely vintage lamp which I bought when I was in New York last month and our new collection of ginger jars which you may like to know are very reasonably priced.

Hope you have a great weekend.  Next week I might post some snippets of my new wallpaper collection which we will be launching with Porters Paints in the next couple of months.

Anna,
You always know how to land on your feet and keep things fresh. It seems that is life, that the best laid plans take detours. The journey should be enjoyed, even if they have delays or take the long route.
I always say I much prefer the scenic, even if it adds a few miles :)

The lamp is lovely but I doubt it would ever make it to Greece in one piece!I look forward to the launch of your wallpaper collection.

Your window display is beautiful...and the lamp is amazing. I'm sure it looked nothing like what we see here when found it in NY, but the custom lamp shade you chose is so fun. I love the chest of drawers and ginger jars too!

I always love seeing photos of your shop-the colours and displays are so uplifting. Too bad I live on the other side of the world because I would adore a grouping of ginger jars.Enjoy your day!

Gorgeous as always Anna! I sent some friends from Adelaide in to visit when they were up in Brisbane last week. To say they were impressed with the shop would be an understatement! Xx

I have a little soft spot for blue and white!
Can't wait to have a sticky at the new window! Jx

Oh I wish the ginger jars could travel, I've been looking in the UK but they are all fortunes.
