we butcher blocked the windows to the new shop and began moving yesterday, a little at a time. it’s only 2 doors down but after moving 10 bolts of fabric by hand i realized i needed help and ordered some of those cool canvas bins on wheels to do the job. it was kind of fun cleaning the windows around 5 pm. it was still really warm outside. we had old country music playing and cold beer while we worked. giulietta kept herself busy with a new chinese jump rope and marcello pretended to do his homework.
i picked up some more odds and ends at the antiques faire over the weekend. pretty tea cups to mix in with the new dishware from japan. i have a weakness for broken old dolls so bought these 2. what am i going to do with them? i have no idea but they’re going into the shop some where. considering buying some of the beautiful dolls by jess brown. i’ve wanted to see them up close for a few years now so maybe this is it. i have a fun idea for one of the big display windows that involves velvet pillows, some pretty dishware and tea for two. probably some tin toy robots too.
