I'm a model you know what I mean, And I do my little turn on the catwalk...

Hello,
a post of many pictures today! I thought you may like to see how The Wear-House is evolving. The various rooms will probably change daily, as most shops do, but this place just gets better and better. We shall hopefully have a blog and website up and running soon for lots more info.
Here is the 50's inspired coffee lounge... A French chair and garden gnome, as you do...
entrance leading through to the walled courtyard garden...

looking up...walled garden...(the property was built in 1740, so you can imagine how lovely the walls of the garden are)...
decorative interiors and antiques, from Annie...

hen's teeth and Thursa's room...



'Pretty Rubbish' are two young gorgeous girls who rework clothing into wonderful vintage inspired pieces...
'Vintage Cate' and Zanie Sue's room...
my lovely young friend Ellie and her vintage clothing...
brand new textiles range from Ede...
and finally, decorative interiors and antiques from Jane...

I will have links and more info for anyone interested in popping along to visit The Wear-House and Ludlow soon...
I wanted to finish by showing you a couple of images of our dining area at home. It won't be long before a request is put in to clear a bit more space, from the current husband....till then I'm keeping stum.
I have enjoyed just putting this and that together and get daily pleasure from 'playing' with my bits and bobs. Not so much pleasure though, when the eyes are dragged to the left...(see pic below)...Three weeks of ironing, sitting there, rising higher and higher by the hour, looking at me.... misery and boredom written all over the weary pile! :-)
Thanks so much to all of your good wishes and again, I do apologise for not replying to lovely comments, but I have had to book at week off at work to try and 'catch up'....
Thanks for stopping by. x

It all looks so beautiful Viv... I would love to visit. Wish my dining room looked like yours(well, not the ironing pile... I've already got one of those)

Tina Gilmore said...

I must definitely come and visit that lovely shop, the 50's tea room looks fab. Don't worry about that ironing Viv, if you did it all today it would still be there next week - why don't you make a gorgeous "Hensteeth" screen to go around it, then you won't have to look at it!!!! sorted. I'm going to arrange to meet my sister in Ludlow soon and we'll definitely be over to look at your shoip and all your lovely friends too. xxx

Annie said...

The shop looks lovely , I hope I get the chance to visit. I love the 50s style tea room and the red chairs.

Sharon Lovejoy said...

Ummmm, yummy. All the views are great and YES, those walls are the best.

Can't wait to see this in person.

Keep posting pics. It is fun to dream on them.

whitney-anne said...

oh deep joy to be in a space like that!!Thanks for sharing the pictures!
Does the current husband not do any ironing. Mine does it while watching John Wayne films.

Ticking stripes said...

I'm not surpised you needed to take a week off work! Hope you're managing to catch up. This all looks wonderful. Its now on "the list" (places to visit)

JP said...

I could spend a fortune there...It looks wonderful Viv...lucky you...you deserve it...forgeth the ironing...making beautiful things is far more important...you should see our pile...

Jackie said...

Ooh lovely. I love that three tire cake stand.

Bobo Bun said...

How wonderful to have a tidy and exciting place to play house at. Hope you don't spend much of that week off ironing. I shortened ours once by giving most of the stuff that hadn't come up from the bottom for a while to a charity shop. The relief of the smaller pile.

Have fun x

jane and the happy crow said...

Everything is beautiful at the Wear House. Hope you are enjoying every moment selling your goodies there. Just wanted to say good luck with the Portscatho Fair if you are there again in August. I shall be a wedding. Will I ever get there and meet you dear blog friend?

Lots of love

The Cloth Shed said...

Just found your blog via Ticking Stripes....wonderful to see photos of the Wear House....I have been an avid visitor over the years at Zani Antiques/Lady and can't wait to see the new premises...
Best wishes,

Barbara said...

Everything is settling in nicely. That's what happens as you get used to your space.
I used to have a space at an antique shop, I miss it sometimes, but I don't miss toting all the "stuff" in and out on a hot day like today ( it's in the 90's)..
I wish I was closer I'd stop by.

The ironing mountain has made its way over to the Lane sadly!

What fun you are having! lovely to see all the pics, so happy for you. I really must get to Ludlow one of these days you know!

Love Sarah x

Cathy said...

Great photos but a shame the ironing is there to haunt you. What a pity we can't have disposable clothes which disappear into thin air when their time is done.

Good to see you are having fun with your stuff. Did someone mention an ironing pile? Nope, I couldn't see one anywhere - definitely not.
