Reasons to be cheerful - Eye candy

I have to share this delightful shop with you...

It's called Decorative Country Living and is in Caythorpe near Grantham, Lincolnshire.

Everything about it was just gorgeous - the sign on the door was a clue!

Just look at these boxes - many of the items are sourced in France

Lots of painted furniture...

Cushions with lovely blousy rose designs...

Vintage clothing...

Beautiful bunting...

Hand made items from local makers...

Delightful displays

And these lovely tins...

I bought this lovely red and white checked shelf edging with a black embroidered design for my red white and black kitchen shelves.

I've just spent a happy half hour rearranging all my bits (or stuff as my gorgeous girl would call it)on the shelf.

Hope you managed to have some fun between the showers/downpours this weekend!

Love Wend
