Mosaics at the gift shop

Hello to you all! Today we have had a few drops of rain and everything looks so bright and clean. I am hoping we have had the last of summer here as the last few months have been very hot. The mornings are feeling a little crisper so that's a good sign autumn is not far away - thank goodness!!
I have some more  pics to show you of my sister's shop. I will be popping over to The Little Red House tomorrow for Mosaic Monday.

This is the display I did for the wondow - I used a piece of yellow hessian (burlap to most of you) to start with and then added all the browns, yellows and greens that would match. I just love the china in the front - it is white with 4 yellow bands around it. This gorgeous tableware also came in the red and blue colour ways but sadly the company has decided to cease producing tableware - what a shame.

I found this great old suitcase in my mum's back shed - there were 4 in different sizes but somehow my sister took possession of one! I am tempted to paint them white but I am afraid I might regret that in years to come.

I love the cushions in the background of this photo - they have a great big leaf pattern in urky green and taupe on white - definitely not my 'normal' colours but they look fabulous.

This gorgeous green serving dish was a much nicer green than the photo shows - I love the trio of tealight holders in the green.

I should be back working at the gift shop again soon as the  goodies my sister ordered at the gift fair will be arriving soon - can't wait, it's so much fun!
