You would love the red background as it is the interior of an OPERA HOUSE!

What a gorgeous collection of photographs of the Hen House! Particularly love the ones of the ballet shoes, the deer head and the beautiful moody one of the candelabra…..you have elevated up another notch!

Just fabulous. Have been by several times, Ms Contessa, but shop has been closed.
I was very sad! 🙁

So, sorry to have missed you!Could it have been on a Friday or Sunday by chance?We are closed those days………….I should be there until 4;00 but sometimes LIFE gets in the way and I depart a bit on the early side!My apologies…………..please try again!

I think these are the best photos ever!!! Your shop is always so chuck full of wonderment. Just when I think I don’t need one more thing, a trip to the Hen House destroys my resolve and another treasure becomes mine.
