My Cloakroom Bits

Here are som pictures of my new cloakroom, I decorated it all myself and enjoyed every minute. When the painting was done I asked Tony to put me up two long shelves which he duly did, I then started to look for things to dress the shelves.
I found the small vintage shelf in our local Dunelm shop this shop sells most things to do with the home and lovely fabric too. The items hanging from the small shelf are things I love the pink heart was a present from a friend Elaine she made it for me, the Wild flowers for a wild woman hanging was a present from my sister-in-law, the little forget me knot candlestick is Royal Worcester and was bought for me by the children and Moms when I finished helping at Play School.the two creamers are from my sister-in -law, when she lived in Toronto and we visited for a holiday there was an antiques market in the local mall and we went along. ThePink and black creamer is wedgewood and the floral one is a Clarice Cliff, there was another creamer and I could'nt decide between the two and the Wedgwood one won but, on the day we were coming home Janet presented me with the other creamer which I will put in my hall when I have finished painting it. The little jar is full of fabric yoyo's , I used up lots of scraps to make these. So when I go into my cloakroom I love it because it has lots of things that I love in it.

Oh My Aching Back

I have been in the garden today for five hours weeding and tidying up and my back telling me I worked too long but, I was pleased with the results it looks lovely. I found some wild garlic lurking under a shrub it's just about to flower I love wild garlic leaves chopped into a salad it is such a gentle flavour.
How to you like my Chicken and chicks I found this frame with the wooden chickens behind wire in the charity/thrift shop it looks great in my kitchen.

Nature is a Wonderful Thing

I Was walking around my garden today and decided to take some photo's to show you some of the wonderful colours there are at the moment. Is'nt life just great we get to wake up each day and see all these beautiful things and I'm sure we do not appreciate them because they are always there, but I think nature is just so clever, I noticed my Lupins and Delphiniums are starting to produce more leaves so they will be the next to burst out and fill us all with joy. The sun is still shining and the trees are full of blossom what more could anyone want.
