Picked up this rather sweet metal sign from one of my local chazzas. It was painted in a garish red and black and was a bit worse for wear rather than looking 'time worn' and vintage chic. I didn't want to buy any special paints to give it a make over as we have pots and pots of paint in our garden shed. I had a quick delve and found some nice Farrow and Ball tester pots. They worked perfectly well with a little bit of primer underneath. I have hung it up in my garden studio where I will be holding my workshops, just in case we forget to have some tea and cake, as if!
Spoke to lots of lovely folk at the South of England Show on Friday. I managed to have a quick squiz around too. I was given some lovely free range eggs from the chap on the Mantel Farm stand and have been invited to visit a farm where my favourite sheep live. I'm hoping I may secure some fleeces from the breeder as I will be starting to learn to spin wool next week. VERY excited about that.
My hanging baskets are now back up as our painter has finished the back of the house. These gorgeous baskets were an incredible super scrimpy price of £10.00 each, from Morrisons. And as they can't seem to stop giving me vouchers at the mo, they really were free. The middle pic is of our raspberry canes that are fruiting for the first time since we were given them a couple of years ago. If the birds don't get them first we should have some delicious fruit soon.
