"You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream."
Another year ended, and a new one just begun. In fact, a new decade has just begun and I have set my goals for the year ahead but also need to make new 5-year and 10-year goals.
As we enter 2020 this is the third year of House & Garden Shop and time to develop and grow the business. I still have lots of plans of what I want to do - more unique furniture renovations, paintings, children's furniture, garden accessories and repurposed garden furniture. I'd like more time in each day but instead I will have to be more creative with my time!
I look forward to sharing my dreams with you all through the furniture I refurbish and hope you will be excited and delighted with what is on offer in the days and weeks ahead.
With so much to do it's time to put down the laptop and pick up the paintbrush! Please keep coming back to see what's new at https://www.houseandgardenshop.co.uk/what-s-new/ and follow us on Instagram #houseandgardenshop
Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to view any of the items for sale.
Wishing you all peace, love and laughter in the New Year ahead xx
I love a bargain and am sometimes guilty of buying something I don't need, simply because it has been so magnificantly reduced! But they are always of good quality and worth much more than I paid for them. And whether I strictly "need" them or not, I will love them, use them and wear them.
However, I do not agree with buying one ... or many items, simply because they are cheap and "throw away". Too often these items of clothing lose their shape or start falling apart after the first wash and so "throw away" is invariably the reality.
Like clothes, any furniture that is mass produced and cheaply made will often have a short life span. Once it has been assembled it can rarely be dismantled and reassembled successfully.
Not so, lovely solid items of furniture made of good quality materials and created by craftsmen. And that is the reality of the items of furniture I'm working with. The only negative is that the darkness of the wood doesn't fit well in the light filled interiors we now desire, and so these gorgeous, well made items of furniture are often disregarded and may well end up on landfill - negatively impacting on our environment.
So I buy these discarded items /donated items of furniture and sand them, paint them, wax them and give them a whole new lease of life so they will once again, be loved and cherished by their new owner.
When you are buying an item of furniture from House & Garden Shop you are buying something with history, that is unique, and that has been refurbished with passion, creativity, vision and a desire for a safe and healthy planet for our future generations.
Happy shopping xx

I wanted to thank you for the beautiful decoupage wine table and the stencilled chest of drawers I purchased from you. They are so pretty. They have been painted and decorated so well.
It was a pleasure dealing with you Martene and I know where to come when I need another piece. Thank you.

I wanted to say how much I'm in love with the cabinet! It's in the hallway outside our bathroom and couldn't be more beautiful or fit more perfectly. It will become the new home to our towels.
Every time I pass it, it makes me happy, and I remember what a pleasure it was purchasing from you.
Absolutely delighted, thanks again Martene.
