I'd just like to thank you all for your lovely comments ... I was completely overwhelmed by them, and felt that I had been enveloped in a warm, loving hug by you all ... in fact I was moved to tears that you had taken the time to wish us well, so thank you so much, it really meant a lot. I promise that I will try very soon to catch up with you all, as I've missed this little corner of my world, called Blogland.
For the coming week though, I am going to be extremely busy ... I haven't even thought about Christmas yet! My amazing news is that I am going to open my very own shop! This has been my dream for so long, and now it's come true, thanks to 2 lovely ladies, who knew about my dream and have offered me the chance of making it come true. My hairdresser and her business partner had often said that the rooms above the salon would make a good shop for me, but it was rented out for the long foreseeable future. A few weeks ago it became vacant, but because of what was going on in my family, I didn't pay much attention. On Tuesday evening, they offered me the chance to fill their empty rooms with a vintage Christmas shop ... if I like it and think I can make a go of it, it can be mine afterwards too! I didn't even hesitate, because I knew that if I didn't grab this chance, I would forever regret it, and wonder if it would have turned out ... only one way to find out!
I'm hoping to open this coming Thursday, and I promise I'll keep you posted and takes lots of pictures. I really must go though, I have a loaded car waiting ...
Have a wonderful weekend, and I'll catch up soon!
Love Claire xxx
PS: The name of my little shop ... Thriftwood Vintage! xx
