love and elbow grease

It's amazing how far a little bit of love and elbow grease goes! Montreux was closed for a couple of days (apologies for any inconvenience) for a big cleanup, a new paint job, and a bit of love and attention.

It was a pleasure to re-open and I am once again excited about the year ahead. I am now looking forward to the arrival of some fashion samples from a new supplier...can't wait - but guess I'll have to!  

In the meantime we have just taken delivery of the most fabulous 100% linen duvet covers and pillow slips. The colours are just beautiful, a deep charcoal grey colour and a gorgeous taupe colour. They are also available in white. Of course I have already snaffled a set for myself (you have to have some perks!)

mirror image

Things have been a little hectic these past couple of weeks and I must admit I have fallen behind a bit with the good old home duties, but I was a little taken aback when I received a text from my sister yesterday (who may I add has a great sense of humour) saying....I think it's time to change your sheets.

It took me a moment or two to realise she hadn't been sneaking around my house checking to see just how neglected it was but was giving me a gentle prod and a sisterly hint that it was time to update my blog (my last blog being on sheets)!!!

As I was spending the day in our new shop TROVE I looked around for some inspiration and noticed that we had a great collection of mirrors and thought I would share some of them with you.

The first three images are part of our collection we currently have available for sale at Trove. The last two images were taken at home and are park of my own collection!
