Hello all, I hope you’re having a fab weekend!
The week before last, Lucy and I did this photo shoot for our website, The Rustic Rose.
I’m so proud of what we have achieved the last few years – we set up the business from scratch ourselves, and we do absolutely everything, from sourcing, prepping, painting and photographing the furniture, to setting up and maintaining the website, marketing and social media. Not to mention emailing and telephoning customers and arranging deliveries. All whilst juggling school runs and four children between us.
From early on, we realised play dates could also be utilised as business meetings (thankfully our children are good friends!) so we can often be found working on our website whilst the children play, or even having a Skype meeting once the children are in bed. It’s enormously hard work running a small business, especially in these tough economical times, but there is nothing like transforming an unloved piece of furniture into a thing of beauty. We love what we do so much, and hopefully it shows in all our photographs.
So, a big ‘high five’ to my dear friend and business partner, fellow lover of rock music and a good caramel latte – I can’t wait to see what the next few years have in store for us!
