Busy Bee!

hello peeps ,
sorry its been a while since my last post but I have visitors, its a very busy time for me, and I still have two lots of visitors left to come.!!! Anyway I have been having lots of fun with this little girl, having lots of nanny cuddles and kisses x x x

Mother sent down two cupcakes for Poppys birthday, so I could have a look at them, and they are cute x x x x I put in a request for some with a knitted cherry on the top.x
They are going to look lovely displayed on my cake stands....can't wait to see the Blackwell tarts on them.x
I had a few odd cups and saucers stacking up and I didn't know what to do with them.......and then I had a bright idea......and made up this totally mis matched set....and I love it!!!!!!
Had a bright idea that I would drag out all the stock for my stall ..........
MMMMM!!!! It was a good idea because I could actually see what I had..........
and it gave me a good idea of what I need to get more of.....namely...tea pots x x x
I am excited but also worried if anyone will actually buy anything!!! And I am having trouble of how to price everything up.....everyone keeps shouting at me because I am pricing everything too cheap!!!!!

The only thing now is that I have to wrap it all back up and put it away!!!
I would like to take this opportunity to reassure all my family and friends, I WILL NOT be selling any of the lovely presents you have given me....I love my china and treasure my presents far to much to part with them....in fact I am finding it hard to let go of some of the things I buy for the stall!!!!! And even though my collection is starting to get out of hand I have found a very legimate excuse to HAVE to purchase more ....I intend to start to hire out china for tea parties....well thats my excuse and I'm sticking to it!!!!! x x x x x x


  1. Too much loveliness in one post!! I bet you hardly put down that gorgeous baby.

    Those knitted cakes look great!
    I struggle with china prices too. I sell ordinary duo's for £4 and the nicest for £5 or £5.50. Sometimes I don't sell any - sometimes I sell the lot!
    I base this on what I expect a set of four to sell for on the internet/ebay. China hire is a fabulous idea - I was tempted but I just don't have anywhere near enough storage space.

  2. thank you for the comment and helpful advice, i have tried leaving a few comments on your page, but it keeps saying my password is wrong and I can't work out what i am doing wrong!!!! i LURVE the two tea cups you found x x xx

  3. I could eat that baby ! the quilt she is on is lovely too x
