Before & After

These two photos demonstrate the "before and after' of the largest set of shelves that were redesigned. Shown here, the 'after'. The process of cleaning and rearranging spanned over a week.  Special thanks go to Sylvia Fry for her artistic design and creativity in mixing and matching this tea collection so that all blends together on the shelves.  With everything off the shelves and placed on the tea room tables, it took 'vision' to be able to put it all back together again, coordinated in mini themes and placed in a new arrangement. 





 Shown to the right, the 'before'.  Gone are the collection of baking powder tins and the cake decorating boxes and candy boxes, replaced with tea related items from around the world.  It's a fresh new look, still packed with treasures, lots of treasures!

Wow, what a transformation! I'm trying to study exactly what all is different here, but the new version is much more "polished" looking. Excellent work!

Very nice! So fresh and new looking. Doesn't it feel good to regroup, clean, and have a fresh way of showing off your beautiful tea things?
