Hope you've all had a good week and enjoying warmer weather.
We just wanted to let you know that we have been up and down the shop ladder this week like nobody's business!
The shelves are stacked with lots of new goodies from Making Do and Using Up 1930s recipes in the Scullery - "Don't Throw Food Away" to sewing and knitting in the Sewing Room.
1940s dressmaking tips and patterns sit alongside knitting patterns for all ages, and the best knitted swimsuit in town if you're thoughts are wandering to summer.
Animals, we've got them - animals of the countryside in our Attic, Nature books in the Library where you will also find the perfect welcome to Spring
with Enid Blyton's Daffodil book and Jill's adventures on the farm.
Mabel Lucie Attwell is sitting patiently in the Study, whilst things are less calm in the Nursery where we have some vintage parlour games to keep you amused - Shpp-Missus promises to be "Uproariously funny" and "Who Knows?" will challenge your general knowledge.
So if you're at a loose end this weekend, please pop over and have a browse - we'll be waiting in our newly knitted swimsuits, crocheted berets and scarves, busy doing things with yesterday's breadcrumbs.
