new life for old sheets

These beautiful hand embroidered linen sheets were purchased in France. Unfortunately they had some marks on them, so.....

I decided that today was a perfect day to give them a new lease of life! (I used i Dye - for natural fabrics - colour - GUN METAL)

The process took an hour and they were dry in 15 minutes (given that it was a scorcher here today 34°C).

The will be available for sale at Trove tomorrow (hot off the clothes line). They would make a lovely bed cover, throw, or curtain.

one door closes another one opens...

What a hectic time it has been these past few weeks, as if Christmas isn't a busy enough time of the year, we decided to open our new shop the week before. On top of all of this was a deadline of 01 January to vacate our warehouse...it was a mammoth task!

Well I'm happy to say we have survived it all and now look forward to the new year, our new shop and some new directions!

Happy New Year to all.

Montreux will re-open Monday 9th January, and Trove when I can...(will keep you posted)

Our warehouse was such a beautiful old building...these photos were taken with a little tear in my eye on departure.
