Tea Rose Titbits

The horrible weather has gone and Bribie looked a picture today. How exciting a delivery finally arrived today of some beautiful products we have sourced to blend in with our own designs for Sweet Tea and Roses, however wouldn't you know it customers kept us busy until just before closing. Only had a quick chance to unpack and admire our choices.
Thought I would post some photos of our shop for you to see [ however not quite as easy as I thought - therefore only one photo for now] before we wind down and move to our website business. The lovely shabby lamp in the background of one of the photos was a gift from a very dear customer and friend and was made by her sister-in-law who is a very shabby
inspired lady called Sandy.
As you all know there are never enough hours in a day, so we will have another long night tomorrow night to add more information to our site. So far everything is moving along and should be able to give an opening date soon, stay tuned............. TTFN.Lyn

The beautiful Bribie Passage was full of white caps today - not a common sight. Everywhere seemed to be quite deserted and I didn't blame people for staying indoors on a day like today. I'm certainly not complaining as we need every drop of rain that we can get. We did benefit from the bad weather by deciding to close a little earlier than usual and spend a few hours working on our website. Great progress was made so we are now a little closer to adding actual stock for sale. It really is quite exciting watching it all come together.
Until the next update take care.

How exciting - our very first blog. We decided that last Wednesday night was the night to overcome our hesitation and begin work on our website. So a sleepover was in order to begin this process. After a glass or two of a bubbly beverage our performance even amazed ourselves. We have successfully updated the About Us and the Policies pages. But to be fair to ourselves we are still operating The Tea Rose on Bribie 6 days each week. So please have patience with us because the wait will be worthwhile.

We always try to abide by our motto of Improvise, Adapt and Overcome.
