Close - but no Cigar ...








Sometimes I can start and finish a project in one fell swoop, in one day, in a few hours, a weekend or whatever, and people will be like, how do you DO it - how do you manage to get so much done ... to which I answer - Dude, I have absolutely NO IDEA - because, well, other projects can lay in various stages of progress for literally years... see above. Sitting around tantalisingly close, but not yet finished. Nor do I have the energy or vision to make them so. It defies logical explanation as to why some things get done in hours whilst other things, things which are almost DONE never make it to the 'give the man a cigar' list.

I am really hoping that these projects get finished and I can bore you all with details... but I'm not holding my breath.

Moving on. Announcing store-wide discounts over at Vintagalia. I'm having a re-think about costing, and whereas I would like to charge silly prices for my independent handmade objects I am under no illusion as to how hard things are right now, and how much tighter money matters are getting. We are all feeling it. But I hope that we can still allow ourselves to buy independent and handmade, and still find ways to make our homes beautiful without having to forego things like, uh, food. I've reduced most things by a third, and that's basically rock bottom. Instead of having sales throughout the year I'm just going to keep prices consistently low; they are already fair but I'm just slicing the last shred of fat off them.







So take a look, share the love and spread the word. Vintagalia is granny cheap chic!
