Thank You From The Laundry Room

A big thank you to everyone who helped make The Laundry Room Xmas Pop-Up such a huge success. We had a great response from all that visited and couldn't have done it without the help from our wonderful friends and family.

Thank you everyone.

A couple of photos from the weekend.

The Christmas tree laden with London Kills Me reclaimed-slate Christmas decorations. Plus, spot the Sue Whimster hares (sorry ladies and gentlemen these have now been sold).

The painting is a Kate Boxer and the suitcase on the left is full of lovely quilts from My Betty Blue.

David Hollington painting, candles from theBake Boutique, pottery from the wonderful Helen Beard and brilliant dog-print scarves from Lisa Bliss.

Katie adds some final touches to the front room.

The gorgeous Kristen, aka My Betty Blue, tucks into a well-earned glass of bubbly.
