Redecorating at the gift shop.

I've been having fun redecorating at my sister's gift shop. She is away at a gift fair in Sydney buying stock so I have been busy changing all the displays at the shop. It is just so much fun - not like work at all!

I love this green table. My dear old dad made that little picket fence for me many years ago and it sits in front of the fireplace in my loungeroom. I love taking props in with me when I go to work there - it just adds a different look with some of the stock that has been there for a while.

Luscious green and cream. We  have some new china in store as well. It is that gorgeous beige and white striped  soup mug and lots of other cookware to match. It is made by Robert Gordon. Very different to the Robert Gordon china I have which you can see here.

Gorgeous cookboooks are always a favourite.

Can't you just imagine having lunch at this wonderful table on the cover of this cookbook. It would be just fabulous.

Pitchers in various sizes look cute hanging from the picket fence.

Another table I changed was this pretty red and white one. I have red and white in my beach house and it just looks so fresh.

The old cupboard in the background was one I painted many years ago. I think it could do with a facelift and a change of colour soon. Finding time is the hard part!!

Gorgeous teapots and milk jugs and creamers to match!


This lovely salad bowl is lined with bamboo. I couldn't help myself so I bought one of these!! I have just noticed the teatowel hanging on the chair with the rooster standing on it's head. Oops, sorry!

I think a customer left that teatowel upside-down. You know how they love to mess up displays!

Everything looks have such a good eye for this.....makes me want to buy everything! Your sister will be so pleased!

Very lovely photos of your redecorating. I saw a very cute tea cup in there, red polka dots, it is part of a tea for one. That is a really pretty tea for one.
Thank you so much for sharing with us.

What fun you've been having, Suzy! Your sister will be pleased with the results, I'm sure. Everything looks wonderful and I'm glad you shared it with us today.

What nice displays. I'm partial to the green and cream. Your red and white looks so crisp, too.

You have a knack for displaying merchandise, everything looks wonderful.
It was kind of like window shopping, only I think it might be called screen shopping. I could spend some money in the shop very easily.

What is the red container that says "dishwasher?" is it to hold dishwasher soap?
