Shop diaries 2

Well, things are about twenty thousand times closer to happening than they were yesterday. The bank has come to the party with the money, and now I can realise all my dreams of stylish light fittings and floor coverings, not to mention some substantial spending at the gift fair later this month. Woo hoo. For a while there it was looking like we might be snaffling all the fittings from my house, which would be innovative, because who would've thought of using a kitchen bench as a counter?

With my new found wealth, I popped into Backhouse to look at Kartell lights. Bloody Kartell don't do big ones though, so there goes that idea.

I want to get the biggest cowhide I can find for the floor. We went up to my parent's house in the country in the weekend, and I was having seriously impure thoughts about the cattle beast's coats. My vegetarian father was not amused. If anyone wants to go and quietly slaughter me one of them, and tan the hide, I'd quite like white with black spots. Thanks

There are 3 or 4 dalmation hounds in my neighbourhood, would a few of those stitched together do?

sorry I've been bad with advice- slightly distracted. Sounds like your on the right track - upcycling things from your house is a great idead (very esd darling) and the bigger the cowhide the better - I'll be in touch soon...

Would this suffice? It's marketing genius.
