  1. Firstly I would like to say a big heartfelt Bella and the Moo thank you to @thegreengal one of my twitter friends for being inspired by the 5 nice things I list on Twitter each day to write this mornings blog. Do have a look at her gorgeous website, as its full of the most beautiful things!

    Yesterday was an evening of celebration in the Moo household as I made my first sale from this very website! Woohoo! Thanks to the lovely Sharon for purchasing one of our heart hooks - it is winging its way to you!

    I've been having a bit of a buying morning today and have found a super-duper supplier of gorgeous French style ticking fabric, so will be busy soon making up some lovely cushions, hearts and maybe an apron or two! Watch this space.

    I haven't been as busy as I could have been but have sorted out all the vintage china stock currently stored in my garage. Lots more of it will be appearing on our pages soon. I'm hoping to be able to offer a hiring service for vintage weddings and tea-parties so am very excited at this extra direction!      

    I hope you're all enjoying this beautiful weather! I'm looking forward to a trip to the park later with the beautiful Maddie & Freya, and maybe a little working in the garden.

  2. What a gorgeous sunny day its been today - shame I had to spend over an hour travelling a mile this evening stuck in a traffic jam. Unfortunately a lorry had overturned on the slip-road onto the motorway and the roads were chaos. I hope the driver wasn't too badly hurt.

    When I did eventually get home it was still bright and warm out and I can never resist the chance to wander around our garden to see what new flowers are blooming. We have a trellis between the patio and the main lawn and flower beds and have planted four different clematis on it. The two early, bell-shaped ones were out in full force and looking stunning!

    It makes such a lovely screen between the two parts of the garden and looks stunning in mid-summer when it is strung with mini tealight holders too!

    Hopefully the nice weather will stay with us till the weekend as I'd really like the chance to get to some car-boot sales on the look-out for vintage china and glass. I miss doing that in the winter when its cold, dark and wet!

    I was also delighted to receive a parcel through the post with these gorgeous heart hooks in! I love finding really beautiful things to stock the shop with - its so exciting!
