Huge thank yous and an update on my chest!

First of all, I need to say a HUGE thank you to all of you VERY kind people who left lovely, lovely comments on my blog about my shop. All I can so is WOW, I was blown away by your very generous remarks. It really is a little shop, we do try and pack a lot of stuff in there, we like it and you obviously do too so that makes all the hard work really worth while as it does take a lot of effort to keep it in shape. If any of you guys were serious about making the trip to see us and want to stay over to maybe take a class, we do know some very good B&B's in the area, just call us or email me for details and we'll fix you up.


Now for an update on my chest......we couldn't screw the knobs on my drawers after all.......the screws that came with the knobs were too short for my drawers!!! Never mind, they seem to be stuck firmly and I'm pretty pleased with the results. I'll let you into a little secret though....I forgot to alcohol ink my white knobs until after I had stuck them on.....rats....is what I said.....if you believe that you'll believe anything!!! Where there's a will, there's a way...stonewash....mushroom....paintbrush.....job done!!




Okay, we're off to pick up Ronnie an Millie, got a hot date with a bucket of popcorn to see Toy Story this afternoon.
Back tomorrow with news of the new Tens Seconds Studio goodies.......most exciting!!!

It's a real bummer when the knob doesn't have a decent screw, isn't it?! ;) It looks even more fabulous now it is fully erect (ok, I'll stop now!!)
Have a great time at the cinema x

Oh Wow, Lin, what a fabulous chest! Thanks so much for sharing this with us because I have a sort of chest thingy I rescued in a bit of a battered state from a clearance section and it's been waiting ages for some TLC because I couldn't decide what to do with it. Now I know!!!!

Hope Mark and the children enjoy Toy Story and you enjoy being with them.

Hugs
