Christmas Wishes……………...









Hi Sweet-peas…..

I have a Christmas wish that has come true………..Warren made us a perfect dining table that seats eight, out of recycled wood from the sheds. 
With such beautiful light in the church and a big space to fill we are both so happy with how it looks.
I have even been inspired to pop out some Christmas decorations………the upside down twig tree is the perfect place to display Katy's bespoke felt creations…….we are so lucky to have received one each year for the last six years………I just love them.

The squirrels are about to start back to work and will be open everyday till Christmas now. Not many sleeps till santa comes, I hope you are all being good.

Juggling……………..









Oh my gosh………hello lovely sweet-peas.
You may have thought I had run away and joined the circus as a traveling squirrel act or something……….
Nope I have just been so busy my life has felt like a circus.
My squirrel act would be juggling nuts I think or would that be nutty juggling……snigger.

Christmas has come to Two Squirrels Vintage with the decorations up and a lovely window display to celebrate the season. Check out our Facebook page to see the window sparkling at night. The lovely Jill from the service centre over the road especially took them for us, thank you sweet.
We have so many gorgeous vintage treasures in at the moment, its so very exciting with lots of new stock.

On the home front St Biddies garden has gone crazy and I am sorry to say we have that 'abandoned house' overgrown look going on………..at least the roses are beautiful.

Right lots of washing and ironing to do before Thursday.

We have posted the Christmas hours on the side bar just click the Elf.


Happiness to you…..

Blue skies…blue roses….bluebird of happiness……..








Hi Sweet-peas…..

Warm spring days……wearing a summer dress and taking off your shoes to feel the grass between your toes. Lying on the ground and looking through the trees to see the blue sky.
A bluebird brooch such happiness.
Simply pleasures to make your heart sing.

Vintage Shop girl…………..









Hi Sweet-peas……

Can you believe another month is just about over????
The days are just flying by and I feel like I am chasing my furry little tail all the time.
Its taken a while to settle into being a shop girl again…….I must admit to struggling with the confidence it takes to serving, buying and dealing with lovely customers all over again. After being in retail for 25 years I still get nervous sometimes…..crazy.
We have been doing some long hours at the shop and behind the scenes to keep interesting and fun treasure coming in, its all worth while when you see the delight when someone decides to take them home.

Talking about vintage shops………Warren and I went to a fabulous new one in Dunedin
we meet the wonderful Emma-Jane the owner and I came away with a cute pair of old school style navy shoes…..so happy!!!!


Right I must go do some paper work and the banking……

Happiness to you all…..have a truly splendid weekend.
