The COD one!

Anyone for an old COD? That's chest of drawers to you!
Whenever I view auctions I always jot down abbreviations in my notebook. Hence, chests of drawers are affectionately known as CODs in our house. Anyway we decided we needed a bit of a revamp at my shop. Furniture had become a bit thin on the ground and to be honest it's the big items that pay my rent not cushions and lavender bags!
 So I sent Mr Jam off to the local auction under instruction to get us some cod. He dutifully came home with a van full and I seem to have been painting ever since.
Can you spot cheeky Little Jam in the photos of the shop!
big cod
little cod
middle sized cod
pine cod
and other assorted furniture!
This has meant I can dispense with the trestle tables that were taking up valuable space and be able to display my smalls on top of the cods.
I've also got a house full of beds at the moment so hope by the end of the week to have given the shop a complete makeover. The best news of all is that the centre now has heating - hurrah no more freezing whilst chatting to customers.
Just a sneaky peak for you of some of the vintage spring fabrics I've looked out of the loft for making later this week!

And the fridge is looking even more cheery now the daffs are out!
I loved all your chazza comments last week! Back with photos of 'the gorgeous new blue one' in a few days. It's arrived - oh and no it's definitely NOT a baby!...
