one of the things I absolutely love about our shop is the southern exposure - certain days the sun is so lovely we all just sit on the bench and soak it all in. john built some new modular shelves for all our wares - I like it so much - he will do a hinge door on the bottom for storage. if your in the neighbourhood tomorrow we are having a closing reception for erica brisson's work from 5-7.
enjoy your weekend! xxa
psst....this weekend we will be having our popular set sales - join the bookhou list and you will be notified when it will be happening.


  1. The lamp is absolutly gorgeous! Is that another of your creations?
