Open for business ...

An awfully long time ago two bloggers started writing to each other and discovered that they had much in common. A very special friendship blossomed and much fun and mischief has been had along the way. Dreams were shared and plans were hatched … after months and months of giggling, worrying, dithering and much custard cream eating, they finally get to
“play shops”.

Milly and Dottie (for they are our alter egos) would love you to come and take a peep around. We’ve polished our shoes, starched our aprons and swept away the biscuit crumbs and are hiding away in our stockroom.... why don’t you come and join us?

Absolutely brilliant - shall love popping in from time to time, especially as I was once known as Millie Molly Meager from Manns Marketing Dept with a Morris Marina. Anything Millie-like suits me!!!

So pleased to hear that Milly and Dottie have got together. It couldn't happen to 2 nicer people.

I've just returned from my first foray to the Emporium. I'm lightheaded with the lovliness of it all. I must fortify myself with coffee and cake before I return, but return I shall.

Hi Michele!
Thank´s for the nice comment on my blog!
Have you ever been to a workshop with Julie Arkell?
It was like manna from heaven all the time I can assure you!
Lucky you to have two of her characters.
I fell in love with her work some years ago, I´m still in love!
I will show more photos from the workshop in France, that might be interesting for a fan of Julie.
You´ve got a lovely blog here and congratulations to the charming shop!
Hope to see you soon again
Kindest regards
