No 5 Interiors

Hi Everyone,

Well, I'm pretty much finished with my blog face-lift.  I still have some tweaking to do but overall I've achieved what I set out to do.  I hope you like it.  I listed all of my favorite blogs beneath my header in a separate category (no worry you are all still there) and you will find my e-mail address there too. My Google followers and Facebook like box are at the bottom of my blog instead of on the side.  I wanted the space on the sides to add inspirational quotes and pictures.  So, there you have it!

I recently sold some of my hand stenciled No.5 tea towels to a shop in England, No.5 Interiors.  Imagine my surprise when I saw one of them hanging over a chair in the picture below (behind the bunny)!

Here is an article take from the website on the shop.  You can read more and see what's available here: No 5 Interiors .
