At last! Here are photo's of the grocery items that I mentioned in my last post then forgot to include. Since then I've made more but still sooooo many more to make before the shelves are full.
I have already bought quite a lot of packet and tin items as well as lots of bottles and jars to fill and label. I know some of the items aren's strictly 1950's era but they can go at the back to make the display look fuller.
It's going to take a while to make enough as I have three shelf units to stock then I can put the "shopping" away and start on something else.
My shop will be in the 1950's and I'm going to sell hardware things too such as pots, dishes, mops, buckets, as well as fruit and vege's. There is also a post-office section.
I'm hoping it will look like one of those country stores that's crammed full of all sorts of interesting bits and pieces.
I thought you might like to see some photo's of my cats. I must be honest and tell you that I've got many to choose from, they always seem to be doing something cute or funny so out comes the camera again!
Bella, on the left and looking like she's whispering to Harry, is as her name suggests, beautiful in nature as well as looks. She was one of a litter from a stray cat and was born in my daughters back garden. I'm not sure what breed she is, perhaps Calico.
This is a favourite photo of Bella. She was washing her whiskers but it looks like she's laughing.
Harry is a street kid in more ways than one! I got him from a cat rescue place. He took quite a while to settle in when he came home. He climbed and jumped up on every surface and piece of furniture in the house and was so full of energy that we wondered if we had done the right thing in getting him. Now I wouldn't swap him for the world. He's settled down although he still loves to climb and has a couple of favourite places on window sills.
My husband made a great cat cage for them both. It's accessible from the laundry into the first cage area, then up a ladder and through a tunnel into the cage in the garden. they both love it and will often sit up in the tunnel where they get the best view.
My little dog Nicholas doesn't like Harry, you can't blame him for looking so unhappy at having to share his bed can you?
