Time To Get In The Garden!

As we all know the sun doesn’t usually hang around for long in this country, So we have to make the most of it.

Here are some garden planters, vintage and rustic wooden pots and quirky little ceramic pots.

My favourite is this one, it comes complete with a black chalk board on the side. Its just perfect for remembering what you have planted. If your anything like me you don’t have a clue about plants and you just pick the ones that look pretty, but if someone asks you what you’ve planted well … who knows right?

Problems solved with this pot 🙂

This pot is a little bit different, a ceramic pot in the style of a 2 drawer chest. Printed with a bohemian style pattern.

This one has a French feel, rustic double wooden planters with  French writing on the side.

I’m stocking up on pots and plants ready to have a beautiful floral garden this summer. You can also reuse old tubs, crates and pallets to plant different herbs, vegetables and pretty flowers.

Thank you for reading, now enjoy the sun before it disappears again.

I love the smell of spring and flowers (not so great if you get hay fever). But here are a couple of spring floral scented candles to give your home a fresh smell.

Yankee Candles are my favorite and my collection is forever growing.

I’ve found the best place for discounted and “Fragrance of the Month” candles to be Tempation Gifts.

Thank you for taking the time to read about my favorite florals, enjoy your Spring : )

Gorgeous Roses!

Ok, so slightly still in keeping with the Valentines Day theme but I received some really pretty flowers and it seems a shame to let them go to waste.

Here are some of my favorite rose photos. There’s nothing better than having fresh flowers in your home, they smell great and look wonderful.

These were my valentines flowers;

Family Time!

Sorry for the lack of posts yesterday but I was enjoying some family time with my younger sister. She is currently studying at Foxes Academy in Minehead, a catering college for 16 – 25 year olds with learning disabilities. We had a great day having lunch, going bowling and playing in the amusements.

Here is a picture of a hand painted sign I made for her. I will be doing some tutorials soon on hand painted signs and hanging hearts. The bottles in the back ground have also been hand decorated using a “decopatch” pattern. There will also be tutorials coming for those too : )

Today we are all about the whites.

A crisp clean white interior is just stunning and here’s a few of my favorite designs.

I love the bed decorations you get when you stay in a hotel. They are so pretty and actually quite easy and effective. This one is just two twisted towels shaped in to a heart and completed with some flower petals.
