So let's have a wee catch-up........









Sorry Sweet-peas........

We have been so very busy I have had very little time to play in blogland, things are crazy at squirrel headquarters as we get closer to opening the new shop.
It's all getting so real with the very large and we hope eye catching signage going up on Wednesday........wow the squirrels are huge.
 Friday saw us on the road to pick up some interesting treasures to stock the shop, favourite thing
the deer-antlers..........two sets.....fantastic.

Thank you for all the lovely comments, messages and letters wishing us all the best for the opening, its been an amazing journey for these to wee squirrels and this is the start of another adventure........your support means the world to us.
I am tired, excited and a little nervous all rolled into one.
Ok kisses to you all.

Happy list..........








Hi Sweet-peas...........

Simple things that make my heart sing....



*Planting strawberry plants....

*Wearing a red polka-dot dress and cute lemon cardigan from the beautiful Curtise.....

*Spending the weekend with my wonderful and lovely friend Katherine.......

*Snuggling up with Mr Warren and listening to the rain.....

*Patting a purring pussy cat.........



Things that make me freak out.......


*Having both Mr Warren and I terribly sick with a rotten cold. 

*Seeing the huge monster list with things we have to get done to get the 'Two squirrels Vintage Store' open on time.......eeeekkk!!!!

Spring market........







Hi Sweet-peas....

Thank you so very much for all the lovely comments and encouragement about the wee squirrels having another shop......its all very exciting.
On Saturday we were at the 'Vintage Roundup' market and had a wonderful time meeting lots of fabulous vintage loving poppets.
Tannia the organizer had done a fantastic job again and we really enjoyed being part of such a super event.
We were able to give out postcards with all the details of the new shop and lots of sweet-peas were going to pop out for the opening.....so happy.
Its a very busy week for us as we paint the shop and start getting the bones of a vintage & retro haven underway.
Signs to order, shelves to build, stock to find and furry tails to chase....eeekkk
