Yesterday Niki Jenkins from The Picture Framing Shop in Chandler’s Ford left a beautiful comment on a post I wrote five months ago.
She also sent me pictures of Teddy, their lovely shop dog, who is renowned and well-cuddled in Hiltingbury.
Niki wrote in this comment:
I have recently come across this blog during a google search and I must say I am overwhelmed!! Thank you so, so much Janet for the lovely things you have said about our shop, my Dad would be so proud, and thank you to all for your lovely comments, I can’t wait to show my Mum!!

From Niki Jenkins in response to Janet’s post: The Magical Picture Framing Shop in Chandler’s Ford
This comment reveals two facts. One is that I need to improve communication. After writing about my favourite arts shop, I sent an email to let Niki know, but somehow the email was lost and we lost touch. I presumed Niki would have read about my posts, but the fact was that for five long months, Niki was not even aware of all the praises about their lovely Picture Framing Shop, built by her late father Andrew, her mother Jan, and now the shop is run by Niki and her husband Dean.
Second, now this website Chandler’s Ford Today has grown so fast that some great gems might have been lost, overshadowed by newer posts. I have published 350 posts in just over a year, written by nearly 30 writers (or contributors) in the community. You can follow this link to read stories written by our writers (Warning: writers aged between 13 and 103).
However, I must keep those valuable hidden posts alive from time to time. I don’t want you to miss these great timeless posts. I’ve created many tags, linked related posts, and also created a Site Map to give you a comprehensive view of all the posts on this website. My effort of linking aims to connect our stories, our life, and our dialogues in the community.
I believe that our lives are all inextricably connected, though we may never meet each other face to face, through storytelling and writing about our passion and experiences, we can make a meaningful connection in the community. I want you to share your stories with us.
Today, let me revitalise the two posts about the delightful Picture Framing Shop. If you are new readers, or if you missed the posts in January, please follow the links below to read the stories. To continue the dialogues, please leave your comments too.
