Omigod, I listed on Ebay!

I have been missing in action, again. Thankfully I don't have four jobs anymore, just two! I do spend three days a week at least at my job at the furniture shop. The pay sucks, we don't get commission and the customers are nasty. There is only one reason that I haven't moved on - STAFF DISCOUNT.
It is brilliant. Usually around 50 percent off most items. I have been slowly swapping my living room over to a more grown up theme. I am going for a blue and silver scheme with a bit of pink sneakily added :)

Recycled pine bookcase from work with some blue milk glass and silver bits I have scrounged from thrift shops.

The room has had blue curtains and cushions added since this photo was taken. I am painting the green wall pearlescent blue on the weekend. All I will need then is a new floor rug.
The TV cabinet and coffee table are my new "grown up" pieces of furniture from work.

I have also listed on eBay. Two items today and two more tomorrow. I don't like the direction eBay has taken lately. They have stripped all the power from sellers, eg; not being able to leave negative feedback.
Unfortunately there is no alternative that is even half as popular.

Villeroy & Boch 2007 teddy Christmas decoration.

Vintage jelly moulds.

New Breville cooking utensils in fave shabby chic colours, pink and aqua.
