The warm sunshine was very welcome this weekend. It is a wonderful thing to be able to sit out in the garden for the first time in the year with a cup of tea, the trees tantalising us with their new buds, the birds singing louder than usual and looks like some new bird visitors too. It was just a lovely way to enjoy the afternoon and was so needed.
I bought this little picture back in the early 1970's when I was a young girl.
It sums me up completely, I loved little smocks, gingham and lace, flared jeans with patches, (hearts actually - well nothing much has changed there!) long plaits or Walton style long and bedraggled and barefoot walking in the garden on a hot summer day.
As soon as the warmer weather is here for sure I will be barefoot once again.
Another thing about good weather is that it gives me loads of energy. My workroom is almost how I would like it - still needs a tad more diy done - but nearly there. I have even sorted out a whole load of things for ebay - and I fancy making a huge art piece involving pink roses too. Woe STEADY ON .....!!
I have also been shopping on the web again, this time on a great little website which you probably already know all about - Vintage home -
THANK YOU CLARE! I have bought a lovely little box with ROSES - no surprises there then!.
It was for the work room but is in such great condition that it is on my dresser in my lounge.
These door knobs on the cupboard in my workroom have had a bit of a new look. I have stuck these big mother of pearl hand painted rose buttons on with hot glue. My heart seems to look at home now.This is a small collection of containers in the workroom which include these old tins.
The large roses tin is a toffee tin and was found at a carboot sale for 50p a few years ago. The little lady tin was my mother in-laws, she kept it as a button tin in her sewing basket.
