It's nearly mine......!

Hello friends
Start of a new week and today should definitely be the day that the new studio/shop
will be mine!  I will not bore you with all the details but the words: landlords and 
new Lease should give you an idea of why there has been a delay!
But - all sorted now and workmen are going in this week and I will be 
flying around with a paintbrush at every given hour except perhaps Christmas Day and Boxing Day.
So this is how the front looks right now (yes, that is my reflection in the window taking the photo!)
Reluctantly, I've told myself to wait until better weather to repaint the front and just concentrate on the inside for now.  I have to be stern with myself - I always want everything done yesterday!
I want to take you all on my new crafty journey/adventure.  
To be honest I would never have thought to embark on this without the friendship and support of my blog follower friends, design teams, fellow designers and of course my family.  
I hope you do not mind coming along??
I will be sharing photos every time I have a minute to grab the camera.
First off this is why I need ceiling!  
The previous tenants decided to lower the ceiling, put up all the beams but then left it...
They also left the rather nice Laura Ashley wallpaper but I fear that will not survive new 
ceilings and plastering! 
More photos will follow - today I'm going off to buy lighting - lots of it!
Oh and a Christmas gift or two along the way.
Talking of gifts....don't tell Santa but I've already opened a gift!
Details to follow soon...
Take care friends.

Morning Christine

ooh bet you are so excited that you have finally got to move in. I am surprised the landlord/ owner didnt repair the ceiling seems a lot of expense for you but will be worth it in the end

Its lovely to see your photos and I am so pleased to be involved in your project even if its just cyber involvment. Pity I dont live nearer I am quite a dab hand with a paint brush

Naughty you opening your christmas pressies already, hope Santa wasnt watching lol

Morning Christine,
Bet you have butterflies this morning
it's always nerve racking until the keys are in your hand.
The shop front is beautiful your bloggers should run guessing game to see comes up with your chosen colour, my guess would be a soft blue grey.
Looking forward to seeing what you do inside.
Enjoy your day.
