As you know, I don't seem to be able to pass a bank of drawers without coveting and/or buying. Well, these beauties are now in situ at DH and I'm hoping to fill them over the weekend.
I dusted them thoroughly yesterday, and they are now sitting patiently waiting to be fed!
You could perhaps say that they hit you in the face as you walk through the door, but I love them! All that acreage of drawer space in which to hide everything for my customers to rummage through. You, of all people, will know that drawers are designed for rummaging, so I'm just pandering to you, really, and their acquisition has nothing to do with my obsession at all ... and if you believe that ...
The Scheurer fabrics have been out on display since I put them in the shop, but I think they should be stored safely in the drawers for a while. They are still available for sale, but are safer tucked away where they won't get dusty. I still have the glass-fronted drawers, but these have been shifted to the other wall. They have been housing table linens etc for several months, but I think I may have a complete drawer-change.
You may remember the 2 sets of small drawers (one showing in the above pics) which I filled with haberdashery bits and pieces, buttons, lace etc. Well one of these sets is now for sale, being superfluous to requirements (can I really mean that?).
Before you go, have a look at the Dairy House blog!
Today is my day at home (the first one in weeks) and I'm trying to organise/clear/attack the shed/studio to create space for the pile of stock which has been on display in the middle of our sitting room floor for the past x weeks. Pauley has been incredibly accommodating and has ignored it but I can't stand it any longer. I'm hoping that by the end of the day I shall have found the floor ... until the next time!
I have a quantity of (probably discontinued) ZOFFANY WALLPAPER. There are at least 12 rolls of each of the following designs:
Bay Garland from the Hilliard Collection (primrose yellow background with pale blue leaves and ochre trellis pattern)
Obelisk Toile from the Hilliard Collection (primrose yellow background, ochre and shades of blue)
Seed Pearl from the Hilliard Collection (powder blue background with pale yellow)
Nostel Sprig from the Hilliard Collection (paprika background with cream)
Florentine Lily from the Black Book Collection (brick red/terracotta background with darker fleur de lys style pattern)
Clarendon from the Black Book Collection (pale and darker cream stripes)
Lennel from the Black Book Collection (dark blue background with black and gold)
If anyone is interested please email and I'll forward photos etc. Obviously postage would be high but if you live anywhere near Somerset or Dorset (or Northamptonshire as I'll be visiting at the end of September) then collection would be a possibility. I would be happy to sell the rolls at £5 each. They came as part of a job lot from an interior designer clearing her store!!
