It’s been a bit quiet on the H is for Home blog front recently. We’ve been keeping very busy with a new little venture.
We were offered a space in our local Picture House Antiques centre, which we’ve already mentioned in our Todmorden blog, and thought it would be nice to have a physical presence in our home town.
It’s a large cabinet which we’ve given the H is for Home treatment. We’ve painted its backboard a lovely, vibrant green…
…mounted some glossy photos and press cuttings…
…and have begun to fill it with a mixture of antiques, vintage and retro pieces… a taste of things that can be found on the website.
It’s taken a bit longer than anticipated to get to this stage as the whole project started with a bit of a disaster!
We’d arranged about 25 gorgeous glass vases on the top shelf… you know what’s coming next… yes, the shelf collapsed, and the vases came crashing down smashing themselves and other items beneath. There’s no photographic evidence – in the turmoil, taking photos didn’t cross our minds.
It took a few hours before we could face it again… but we eventually returned and have it looking quite nice again. We’ll no doubt be adding & rearranging aplenty over the coming days!
If you’re ever in the area pop in & have a look!
