gorgeous hand made bags, there was a third bag here but it was sold before i got the chance to take a picture...it now lives in Sydney!
and look at this gorgeous stitchery isn't it just amazing!?! there are a few of these sweet hangings in the shop as well. now lets go through the front doors... lots of sweet accessories to make your kitchen pretty...don't you think you might be more likely to bake if you had a heart shaped mixing bowl? :)
more china cabinet fillers, i would be happy with anything in this display... there's even more contemporary pretties for your home... this children's plate set comes in a sweet case and was very reasonably priced, perfect for a that little princess in your life.
it really isn't like working at all. Linda's mum Jan let me be chief wrapper of all sales and i also fluffed and chatted the day away.
this little cottage is made up of two rooms and a front 'veranda' where all of this pretty stock is on display. the inner room is also filled with pretty things...
Linda stocks some of the most gorgeous 'bling' and she also makes some amazing denim and lace cuffs that really jazz up any outfit. and just in case you don't think there is anything for the boys.... here is a corner of BLUE delights just to entice you. this shop really is special and i know that i can always find something for everyone here.
i don't expect to be paid for these wonderful one off days of 'work' but as usual Jan gifted me with something i had my eye on, it is a lovely oil painting of a posy of violets and it reminds me of my grandmother Jane.
here it is on my bedroom wall, the photos don't really do this painting justice but you get the idea.
if you live locally this shop can be found out at old petrie town and is really a special place to visit. lilly cottage is open from Wednesday to Sunday (along with some other specialty shops) but the best day to go is Sunday when the rest of the market is open.
remember to click on the link to get a better look at the shop and click on any of the pictures to enlarge them so you can drool even more :)
so i guess it is pretty clear that when i grow up i want to work in lilly cottage or even better work alongside lilly cottage with the dream shop i have in my mind...come on lotto!!
have a great weekend...i bet you know where i am taking the kids tomorrow :)
