Progress on the little welsh shop is quite slow at the moment as I have many pressing developments in my 'real life' to keep me busy, one of them being moving house!! In the ten years we have lived here, we have accumulated so much stuff!!!! The man in the local charity shop hides when he sees me now, as I keep filling up his little store room with all my 'don't need any longer' bags!! LOL
Anyways, my little welsh shop won't be going to the charity shop and I am pleased to say that we have finally decided on a name for it. I found the name of the real life welsh shop that I had reminisced about in my last post. It was Simms General Store and the name above the door was Eirlys Simms. So, out came my embossed cardboard letters and I played around with the names and really liked the letters saying Eirlys on the top of the bay window. But... hubby didn't like it!! So, back to rearranging the letters I went! It wasn't so easy trying to get the names hubby was suggesting to fit on the top of the bay though, until... we came up with Evies!
Yep, I know it's not very welsh sounding and the shopkeeper is called Flora, so where does Evie fit in?
Well, Evie is the much loved, little spaniel belonging to Flora, so the shop is named in her honour :0)
I think she looks perfect for the shop :0)
and here is Flora, my lovely doll that Joy sent me just before christmas who finally has her own little shop to stay in :0)
Hope you all have a great week,
