I am so excited… my Etsy shop is open and already I have had a couple of sales! Eloise has been busy helping me list some treasures in my store and people from around the world are looking at them even now. I’m not normally the type of person who is inclined to boast but I do think my store looks lovely. A shopper’s initial impression comes solely from the photographs of each item and Eloise has done a marvelous job with her camera.
You may notice I have added another page to my blog. I don’t want write exclusively about my shop in my blog posts so the new page called “Mrs Bath’s Etsy Shop” is where I will put some pictures of the treasures in my store. I am still learning how to link the photos back to Etsy but I should have that figured out soon. There is still so much to learn. I feel like a young school girl again but this time I am not writing my lessons on a slate tablet with a piece of chalk!
I think I will, however, show you a few pictures of the Mother Goose nursery rhymes that were in some of my childhood books. I think it is wonderful that these old pages are coming to life again and other people can use them to decorate their nursery walls.
I will write again soon,

Eloise has done a wonderful job fixing up the old potting shed and turning it into her studio. Once she had sorted out all the old pots, tools and whatnots, she gave the old place a thorough scrub, cleaned the windows, sealed up the cracks and gaps, then gave the inside a new coat of fresh white paint. It looks transformed! She moved the potting bench to one side of the shed and replaced the pots, tools and packets of seed that are still useful. On the other side she now as a photography space with a white backdrop, a couple of spotlights and a special photo tent that she has bought from Amazon. It is so convenient to be able to shop online.
Since then, Eloise has been busy taking photos of the things that we have chosen to go into my shop. I will ask Eloise to show me how to add some photos to this blog post. I do hope I am using the correct terminology – it can be quite tricky trying to remember all these new words! I am very proud of Eloise’s photos. She takes such great care to ensure the lighting and colours are right in each image. How she has the patience for it I will never know, but she seems to love it!
Oh, here are some pictures to show you now:

Don’t they look pretty? I am looking forward to opening my shop and showing you some more treasures.
With best wishes,
