making decisions

Sorry I have not posed for a few days but it has been a difficult time with some big decisions to make but I have finally made them and things already feel so much better. I have given up my job which was hard after12 years but it was affecting my health and just not worth the problems it was coursing. This means I will have lots more time to work on dolls house things and my Etsy shop I have booked a table at a dolls house fair in October and I am looking at it all as a new start. I might even find some time to get to work in the bay sorting out existing properties and starting on new ones.

I have made some changes to the holiday let I have put new paper in the bedroom and new covers for the beds. The kitchen as a new sink and I loved the table and chairs I did for my shop so I did some for my house I think it looks much better.

When I was out to day I was looking at some lovely dolls house shops and was very tempted to buy one but I do not have the money to spend on a new property just now after two trips to Cornwall and I am trying to get my Etsy shop stoked up but I really wanted one so I compromised and bought this. I know it does not look like much now but I am sure I can make it something lovely and it did not cost much.

What will it be I have so many ideas so I had a meeting with the residents of st Pirans bay and I think after lots of presser from the ladies that it will be the long awaited hair salon named Fresh Hair and will be run by Laura who is waiting to meet you all and I am sure she will pop in very soon to introduce herself. After all the trouble deciding what the new shop will be I now have to decide how it will look and I am having trouble with this. one idea is very modem all black and corm the other is very glamorous gold and marble with a lovely chandelier I just cannot decide.

I have been busy working in my nice tidy work room so now it is not so tidy. I have been doing more things to fill my Etsy shop as I have had quite a few sales in the last 2 weeks. I have introduced a new range where you chose the item and then chose the colour you want from a range of lovely farrow and ball paint colours I will be adding more items and more colours to choose as I go along.
