anyways enough of that .. just thought id show you the pots that i brought from the Charity shops the other day.. when i finally ventured out. first time out in a week it was great..
the lady in the shop was laughing at this and said it was called a goes'under... think she was meaning that it should be stuck under the bed at night for emergencies!!.. which when thinking about it is a good idea. Ive always liked the idea of an en suite !!!!
i thought this will look lovely full of lavender for the house.. so think i might take some cuttings of my lavender plant and get planting! i love the detail on the handle..
in the next shop i picked up this rather large enamel bowl..i think I'm going to put some herbs in this but keep this outside,
I'm kinda chomping at the bit to get started on my little yard now.. last year i just didn't have the time to get it looking nice, what with working three days and having two small boys to look after.. but I'm determined that this year I'm going to get it looking tip top.. it just looks so neglected and scruffy,
first off was we needed a garden bench.. i want a wooden one.. so i put a Wanted ad on freecycle for a garden bench..and look what hubby picked up for me on Thursday night!... a wooden garden bench.. YAY!!.. now i want to paint it so i had stated in my ad that i wasn't bothered if it wasn't in fantastic condition .. as long as it was sturdy enough..
anyways its a bit weather worn but its going to be perked up with nice bright red paint so will be as good as new!!..( and i think the brother in law has some red gloss for me so will only have to pay for the paintbrushes.. cheap makeover or what !!!!!!!)
i want to get cracking on the yard this week so hopefully will have some pics to show you next week of it..
i don't know about you but this sunny weather really makes you want to do things doesn't it!!..
so I've been doing a bit of this
and trying to make the house actually appear clean as well as tidy for a change, i felt ashamed at the amount of dirt and grease that was on all my kitchen bits and bobs.. i really must get into a better routine so for this week at least they look nice and shiny!!
righty then. it looks like its going to be another lovely day.. ( sunny but not that warm for maxi dresses and flip flops like i saw a few girls out in yesterday.... or perhaps im just getting very nesh in me old age!) .. have a good weekend whatever you have planned.
