Time to get down to business...

 Okay, it's time to get down to business and get back in my studio to create. I have been side stepping it these past couple of days. No more gardening, playing with photos, house working, cooking or anything else. Today is the day to hopefully replenish some of my charm supply in the shop that is sadly, although pleasingly, very low.

That's it...time to get going...after I have a shower and get dressed and tidy the living room....oh dear.
Have a creative day or at least a fruitful one in one way or another!

A Lazy Sunday at Home

I have had a lazy Sunday at home....gathering flowers from the garden,

relaxing by the fire with my little Poppy,

and mucking around with photos...something that I spend way too much time doing these days....but it is, after day off : )

Have a good week,

Altering vintage things...

Another busy day but I have motivated myself at last to play with a few vintage items. I love to alter old things. To make them useful again.
I think however, I will leave the wooden shoe lasts as is because once they are surrounded by white they look so wonderful. These just arrived today. One of my many eBay purchases and I am so happy with them. They have just the right coloured wood and a few numbers and letters here and there....perfect :)

Vintage Violets

Although winter can be cold and a little demotivating, when I step into the garden and find my violets I am reminded that winter isn't that bad . 
 They are certainly a good aspect of winter and they look so beautiful in vintage bottles of the palest blue.
 So vintage, so feminine, so beautifully scented.
But now, I think I will go and sit outside in the sun while it is still about.
Stay warm,

Winter Roses

My poor garden has suffered since opening the shop but I can always rely on the old tea roses to continue to flower most of the year including winter. They are so reliable, vigorous and they smell delicious!
I can always gather a posy...even if it is a small one : )
