Thats the tune thats been in my head today, but given our shocking humidity these past couple of days, well, I've renamed it!
We have a big fair this coming weekend (read about it here) so of course there's plenty of work to do. Lots of washing, pricing, steaming, and sorting...you get the idea.
Tonight I started doing my practice set-up and it was so hot I literally had to stop and have a stone cold bath to cool down. Then I got out and downed 2 big ice blocks immediately (who remembers Sunnyboys?? they are awesome). Is it just me (or am I really feeling my age now?) because the heat seems to sap my strength these days. I can't wait to get air-con.
But, I digress. Look at some of the lovely little jewellery treasures I'm taking along.
Sterling onyx and marcasite brooch
50s rhinestone sweetheart brooch
Gorgeous red rhinestone 50s brooch
50s rhinestone necklace
And another one- how can a girl have too many of these, I ask you?
I'm taking some really beautiful things along to this fair, more pics tomorrow as I get them sorted. Night-time pics really don't do justice to sparklies, do they.
Oh, just to give you an idea of what I'm grappling with here....and because really we all love to see other peoples houses...
Here's me girl-handling my manni heads in my stockroom. I'm glamorous on the inside....really I am!
Actually this is just one end of my clothing-and-accessory stockroom. (As opposed to the furniture workroom, downstairs). Those racks are 1.6 metres long and hold about 200 garments each. (I have quite a lot more than this though!) The wardrobe-thingy on the right only holds stock for the etsy shop and/or my oldest and most fragile garments, it has a pull-down cover so it keeps things dust-free but well-aired.
The white wardrobe behind the racks holds hats, as do the wig box and hat box atop it. The white boxes on the little table next to it hold accessories, the furry things underneath are a pair of goat skin rugs that will go on ebay soon. All that stuff on the floor isn't usually there, I went up to the shop today and brought it all home to sort out and prepare our displays with.
Which I'll continue with tomorrow, it's midnight now and I'm tired.
