I knew it couldn't last long, the slightly bare Lloyd Loom shelves. I had a bit of a re-arrange at the weekend and used one shelf for some of my floral themed bits and pieces.
The little 1930s style flower basket is actually a hand made brooch I found at a boot sale a few weeks ago.
After a long day at Hampton Court on Saturday we didn't get up early enough for our usual car boot. We headed instead to another smaller boot sale. It was very disappointing although I did find some pretty damask tablecloths. Just as we were leaving fairly empty handed I spotted this pretty pink glass painted posy vase. It was only 25p and I knew it would go really well with my green glass painted bowl. Mr C told me he had spotted it earlier but thought it was just a piece of junk ! After I had pointed out the loveliness of it he quickly changed his view although I am not too sure what he really thinks.
I used it to display some of my first sweet peas from the garden.
Mr C has been busy in the garden with his pond project. It is only small and is far from finished but is starting to take shape.
I found this towel rail at the antiques market on the market square. It was very cheap and needed some care and attention. After a bit of glue in the joints I gave it a coat of paint.
I raided Mr C's paint stash again and used Farrow and Ball's , Teresa's Green which is a blue/green we bought for our front door.
