Nora the Builder

With so many new products coming in at the moment we had to have a shift around in the shop last week.
Cue Nora with her daft ideas and a hammer...  and the bushel box bookcase was born!

We've used a total of 18 original 1950s bushel boxes and already we've had loads of complements about it. Hopefully we've also inspired people to try something similar in their own homes!

Some piccies below of our gorgeous Christmas candles that have just arrived...

Autumn Morning

I took our 13 month old Tibetan Terrier (Oskar) on his usual walk down by the river in Ilkley this morning and couldn't resist putting my camera in my pocket. 

I love all the seasons in this country - they all bring their own special things; Winter with the joys of Christmas (of course!) Spring with its bouncing lambs and 'new life'; Summer with its long balmy evenings (sometimes!) But out of all of them I think Autumn is my favourite time of the year, especially on a morning like today... a clear blue sky, burnt orange and crimson red leaves on the trees and the reflection of all the colours on to the river 

I don't think my pictures did it justice but I thought I'd share them with you anyway!

'Nora - First Time Blogger'

Please bear with me as I am a 'blogging novice'... This is my very first post and I'm hopeful it will be the first of many. 
The idea behind creating this blog is to primarily update and share information on what's going on at Nora's (new products and finds etc), but also to give you an insight in to who 'Nora' is - what she gets up to (not a lot), and what she likes (lots of things).
I hope you will 'tune in' regularly and enjoy this journey with me.
