Hello my dear friends,
How time flies. Today is the last day of January 2014. It seems like yesterday that we where actually celebrating the entrance of the New Year. Finally I have settled back to work and it has not been easy to find my daily mini time. The weather hasn't helped at all being gloomy and so damp. I also wanted to welcome a new follower to my blog, my dear friend Denise. Welcome!
Today I will be sharing with you some work that I have been adding to the florist shop. I finally got to choose the wall paper for the room and I added a false door at the back which I have painted.

I wasn't sure what I wanted as in furniture for this shop. So I got myself some bare wood furniture and painted it myself. As the furniture was painted in white I have highlighted the edges with some green paint which fitted in perfect.
The back shelves and counter have also been decorated with printed paper which I have designed to match the florist signs. They fitted in quite well.

I also had to cover the ceiling with appropriate paper as the ceiling was brown and there was a small whole for a ladder. So I choose a thick embossed white paper and it fitted in perfectly for a ceiling.

There is still so much that needs to be added to the shop especially flowers and plants. I had a couple of flowers and filled up some shelves. I have also gotten myself the three step shop display and painted it to match with the rest of the furniture.

I am really pleased with the out come so far although I haven't even started with what I have planned for it. Hope you like what I have done. Here is the picture of how the room looks like so far.

I also wanted to let you know that my 8th miniature downloadable book is now available. It is called The Book of the Flower Fairies where you find quite a selection with information and illustration about the Flower Fairies. The Book of the Flower Fairies.

I have also added some new miniatures at My Miniature World Shop which I have made.
This is all for today folks. Please do keep tuned for the next update on the Bloom & Blossom Florist. I wish you all a very happy weekend.
Take care and see you soon.
