Another month has whizzed by ... we've had a holiday from work this week and we have had wonderful summer weather. Both of us are sporting "garden tans".... it has been lovely spending time in the garden and appreciating nature at work. In this past week ten beautiful yellow roses have bloomed and the most vibrant orange gladiolis. I also noticed blossom on the apple tree, which has one lonely apple on it!
I've renovated a plant stand which probably looks good in the photo, but in reality the painting is poor. My husband didn't help with this project so there are paint blobs and missed bits galore! Having said that, I like the way it looks with the stainless steel bowl we got as a wedding gift and the charity shop copper enamelled dish - it shows them off beautifully.
... I may end up distressing it a bit to disguise the poor painting, but for now I'm happy with my £4 plant stand makeover.
I've been crocheting away during our week off and hopefully will be able to show off my efforts in the next post.
Wishing you all a wonderful start to the week x
