Upcycling, Arundel and Other Stuff.





As much as possible we like to keep antique
 and vintage pieces as near original as we can.

Sometimes though.....



Well....you get my point



So..... then we like to give things a helping hand.

We paint and decorate with decoupage, using 19th-century images.

Here's what we did with those vintage enamel buckets and tubs.












sometimes we gild and then decoupage

we start with this

and wind up with this





lots of work yes...but satisfying


and sometimes I get help.....


and sometimes I don't.


We do the same work on bamboo








and chests of drawers

that start out like this

and end up like this





they've also been on the 4th floor of Liberty London


and in magazines




So we are pretty chuffed.

oh by the way

Recently
I went to
Arun Business of the Year Awards.

We WON!
Best small business of 1-5 employees



exciting hey?






Arundel Stuff


Arundel is the most beautiful town on the south coast of England.

We are lucky enough to live and work there.


 Every morning Elsa and I do a different walk...


sometimes along the riverbank....


by the way

this is Elsa

just over a year old...nearly lost her...to a grass seed that went into her leg and migrated to her spine
Scary.

She couldn't walk at one point.
Or feed herself.
Or even lift her head.
Just the slightest flick of the tail.

Look at her now.

Here's her story

sometimes in the hills...





or Arundel park





If you've never been to Arundel it's well worth a visit.

This weekend we have Arundel By Candlelight.


Here's all the details.


We will be open.
Pop round to the warehouses
behind Arundel Co-op and say hello.
