Milly & Dottie Are Two!
Hip Hip Hooray - We Are Two!! What a lot of fun we've had along the way and we would love you to join in all the festivities going on in the stockroom. Amidst all the jelly and custard, balloons and bunting, blind man’s buff and pass the parcel, we thought we would hold a little competition to celebrate.
Taking two as our theme, and Milly and Dottie as our starting point, we would like you to let us know of your favourite double acts. We’re not just talking Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, or Romeo and Juliet – how about strawberries and cream, gin and tonic, eiderdowns and sweet peas, hot chocolate and a good book, afternoon tea and a floral dress or fish and chips out of the paper?
Let us know your suggestions – the more the merrier and a birthday present or two will be sent to the one that most tickles our fancy.
Before we get out the stepladders and totter up to the top to hang the bunting and birthday cards, we thought we should let you know that the shelves are full of some lovely new finds. Vintage chocolate boxes And Empire Exhibition souvenirs in the Attic, gorgeous French sewing patterns and coloured knitting needles in the Sewing Room, new tins aplenty in the Box Room, books, books and more books in the Library. Cups and saucers are on the Scullery shelves, both Utility and commemorative and a charming pooch is settling in in the Nursery.
A big 'thank you' to you all for visiting us over the past two years and making this so much fun.
We’re off now to squeeze into our party frocks and do so look forward to reading all your favourite double acts and seeing you in the Stockroom.
Hip hip hooray and toodle pip.
Milly and Dottie
