It's no secret that one of my ultimate goals in life is to own my own shop, my own little high street boutique...a haven of beautiful things. I have folders brimming with tear sheets and sketch books loaded with notes and doodles with all the little details. I imagine this cute as a button shop with a French inspired shop front, a rattly old door with a mat for muddy feet...a stand for soggy umbrellas. I imagine rubbed down wooden floorboards layered with cosy shag piles and a resident cat!

Who can resist our own Shy Violet in Dorset with her beautiful shop that was nominated for the Country Living Best shop front! Suzanne runs Furniture Painting workshops and has a monthly market on the side of her shop too where all sort of local and vintage pieces can be bought including music memorabilia - that's her husband's department.
