Warm Welcome

Hello, I'm back again after a great 1st week in the land of Blog!
Thank you to all who have taken the time to have a look at my blog, & to leave such lovely comments. I can't tell you how excited I was to find that I had actually gained a few followers too!!
After a week filled with cold & snow it's been so nice to receive such a warm welcome.

In my first post I mentioned my shop in Chipping Sodbury called Out Of The Blue & some of you said you'd like to see some pictures of the shop. So here we go!

This is one of our window displays from last year. We try to change our window displays every 2 to 3 weeks to keep it looking fresh. I never really know what I'm going to do until I'm in there doing it but I normally have a colour scheme or theme in mind before I start. I loved the combination of the lime & berry colours for this one & had lots of lovely comments from customers too.

This is our current dresser display in the shop & I was aiming for a 'love your garden' theme for this one so lots of green & natural wood & distressed metal & slate. Don't think many of us will be spending too much time in our gardens at the moment apart from to build snowmen or clearing paths of snow & ice!. Bring on the Spring!

The front of our shop is all gifts & greetings cards, but the rear of the shop is a room dedicated to craft supplies, mostly for card making & scrapbooking but over the past year or two we've been adding bits of haberdashery & wool, so here's a peek at a small section of our craft room.
That's it about the shop for now. If you are ever passing please make sure you pop in & say hello.
My next post will be back to some of my crafty projects.
