1/1/16 - A NEW YEAR - A LICK OF PAINT
A new year brings many changes here at Lovingly Made and our Vintage Boutique needed a New Year lick of paint! Great idea we thought and after what seemed an absolute age of days packing up the furniture, treasures, china, glass and packing away all our other stock items, we were set to get painting!
Starting to pack a few things away...
Alas, the human body would say other things! John pulled all his lower back muscles and I fell very poorly with flu! A-ha - being married for nearly 30 years has its benefits. It doesn't matter if you look terrible with a red nose and hair pulled back and paint everywhere! Between us, we have however, managed to clear the carpet, paint all the walls with two coats of paint and repainted the floor with two coats of rather lovely grey paint.

Then the weather decided to get involved, and we are now trapped between dry and incredibly wet spells! More rain than we bargained for! So, we have now to be patient for nature to be kind, and allow us a little window to return our glorious goodies back to their new places.
It has however allowed to strategise a few thoughts and decide what goes where, and how we now use our buildings to their best abilities. As well as having a plan to give the Craft School 'A lick of paint' in the Spring! Yes, we are completely bonkers. It is important to us that Lovingly Made Vintage Boutique is loved by us and you and that means keeping it lovely for you to enjoy visiting and enjoy making and creating in our Craft School.
So, we are nearly there. A New Year lick of paint has been painted, and a lovely newly look awaits the Vintage Boutique. Pop by, and hopefully by the weekend, we should be ready to go, go, go! Lots of exciting events planned, lovely new classes and fabulous offers await you!Happy New Year - wishing you good health and happiness for 2016
Trixie, John and Charlie of course - because he really helped with the painting!
