It's Done, It's Done, It's Done - Ghost Furniture Online

CLICK ON THE IMAGE TO SEE IT PROPERLY
Look the website is ready to have the shopping trolley added. We finished the photography today and the home page, at last, has its image. This is a table called Still Life which I have decorated to look like a Still Life Painting. The fruit in the bowl is from an old French charcuterie and do you recognise the little bowl with the pigeons sitting on the side? The roses in the vase are everlasting and each one looks and feels soft just as if they were still fresh (found in Paris, where else). All the items are fixed to the table - a sort of 3D Still Life.

Anyway I digress. The shopping trolley will be added this weekend and the site will GO LIVE next week. The thing that amazes me most is that it already ranks at 762,864 (you can see it on this screen grab) and it isn't even launched yet. This is because of the amount of hits the holding page has gotten from this blog and Harvey's amazing skills at optimising the site for the search engines.

I would love your comments please. I will listen, I promise.

Beautiful Di and Harvey, As you might expect I love the clean edited look of the homepage. Important I think as not to compete with the detail of the products. bravo, k
