WINDOW SHOPPING ..........

Our daughter lives in Crouch End, London and, whenever we go over to see her, there is often a little trip to one of our favourite shops there called Of Special Interest. It was established in 1988 and, since then, the shop has grown and now occupies three shops and a workshop.
The main items in stock are old and antique wardrobes, chest of drawers, cupboards and dresser bases, complimented by interesting and contemporary accessories. They also have a large stock of mirrors and chandeliers.

















Opposite, on the other side of the road, is my other favourite shop called Little Paris, but, that's for another day.




Oh........... how did that picture get in there ?!!




ALL IMAGES BY ME.

THE DEVIL IS IN THE DETAILS ..... BY INVITATION ONLY .....


Our second post in the 'Invitation Only' series is 'The Devil Is In The Details' . This theme was chosen by two of the participant's :
Vicki Archer of French Essence
and
Tish Jett of Femme D'un A Certain Age.

When people say ' the devil is in the details', they usually mean that it is the small things in plans and schemes that are often overlooked and can cause serious problems later on.
I'm far more shallow than that and have taken it literally !!!! haha




















Some beautifully devilish details in fashion but, the follower of fashion that has got the details SO right is ..........





PERFECT !!!!

Pop over to Marsha @ Splenderosa to find the links to all of the other participant's.
One last thing.....if I haven't commented on some of your posts lately, it isn't for want of trying........I write a beautifully composed  comment..... witty, humorous and sometimes sensitive !!, press publish and it disappears ! I shall persevere and hope that Blogger gets it's act together !!
