Laura and I have been out 'shopping' at probably the grandest garage sale ever, lots of collectibles and other gorgeous things with big price tags but we could not resist this lovely little cabinet, well it is big actually. We bought it, picked it up this afternoon and it is now sitting in Lilly Cottage. I had a quick rearrange as I was on borrowed Darling Husband (and chief cupboard carrier) time, in fact I was still trying madly to take these photos whilst he has the car started up and ready to drive off, so they are not the best pics in the world but you get the idea. We have some new china coming in in the next few weeks so these shelves will be full! We did buy some other things (shhh not too loud), a few trinkets and some linen, but our other main shop purchase was 'Lillibeth' our bust. She is the unofficial new Lilly Cottage mascot, we aren't parting with her, she shall be modeling some of our jewels. She is quite gorgeous but has had a run in with some lipstick (and a small child ) we suspect, but it adds to her charm, a girls got to have a bit of lippy!
Here are a few snaps of the quick rearrange I did today and the really lovely new display Laura and I did yesterday.
I actually went out to the shop yesterday, for the first time in over a month and of course the first I do is rearrange stuff...because it is so much fun....love doing new displays. This is now the pink teddy bear corner, I think it looks delicious! All that pink and those super sweet bears! Our friend Julie makes the dresses for those bears with the vintage lace dresses..her stash of vintage linen mus t be amazing! The light coloured bear with the long nose is my favourite...I think they look so lovable with long noses. Not that they aren't lovable with a short nose, they are just my favourite. Can't have any bears getting put out now. This last photo is my favourite, you can see my long nose bear in the mirror!!
Well I shall off to do some more sewing to show some more creations later in the week...Happy Australia Day by the way, it is officially the 26th but we get a long weekend to celebrate so I am still not too late to wish you all a great weekend..now to find that bottle of Australian white wine and when I do I will have a glass for you....that's just the kind of girl I am, TTFN OI OI OI KN Linda Lilly Cottage ( who has just amused herself with her signing off tag)
