I hope this email finds you and your family in good health and that you are all managing to survive lockdown and the challenges it brings.

Since my last newsletter I have been working on several new changes to my website and many pieces can now be purchased directly online including beautiful cushions from Susan Deliss and Tottering by Gently prints.

A happy result of lockdown is that we are all spending more time at home and thinking of changes and improvements we can make. Hopefully this newsletter and my website can give you some inspiration.

Please forgive the quality of some of the photographs, unfortunately my wonderful photographer Chris Challis is unable to visit the shop at present.

The shop is temporarily closed until the lockdown is eased but I am still available by email and phone. I am continuing to add pieces to the website and some deliveries are still possible. If I can't deliver I am of course more than happy to store any purchases free of charge.

Herbie and I look forward to welcoming you back to the shop in the near future and in the meantime please stay safe and well.
