Summer table decor
It's hot down south... I had quite forgotten how warm summer can get here in little old England.  Now I have no excuse for not cycling along the beach front and getting a little exercise...at least there is a breeze when I cycle.  Talking of heat, my seeds ...

DIY - brass and glass side table
You might be getting a little
bored with my posts lately, as they all seem to be DIY makeovers of the Ikea
kind!   But before I move on to the
makeover, you’ll remember I told you a few posts back  how I planted some Ice Berg and David Austin
roses at the f...

DIY GOLD TABLE LAMP
I've  just been watching the
Chelsea Flower show and now my heart is set on growing peonies of all
things.   Can one grow them in pots I wonder?    I've recently planted three iceberg roses and
two David Austin roses, they are in bud so hopefully within 10 ...

Plants in the office
I am a huge lover of nature.  I really am.   Having grown up in
South Africa I have travelled this beautiful country from top to bottom.    The fauna and flora is second to none.   It is LUSH.   We have no shortage of vegetation except in the Karoo…but that...

Thank you  Sharon. I've had quite a few sales on RB this year so  I thought it would be good to put them together to make more of a collection of them :)

Rug Appeal
For a while now I've been looking
for a rug.   As some of you might already now, I'm updating a little room and turning it into an office.   The room already has a neutral colour carpet,
also known as beige, and this is staying, because you’ll remember from...

Beautiful painting of your Grandson Paula, thought it was a photo!  Also lovely the tractor in the field, your brother must have loved the painting, so special when you paint for family.  I used to paint quite often about 10 years ago and all my paintings hang in my family's homes, sadly I don't actually have the space, or maybe I'm just using that as an excuse!  Have a lovely week. 
This week has been about painting gifts for my family. I have the Naming Day of my youngest grandson coming up soon and thought it would be more personal to paint him a picture . I rarely paint children but my grandchildren a...

Thank you Sharon :) I rarely paint anything for the family. I always think that I'll wait until I'm good enough to think that they'll actually want something of mine on their wall.  But I try my best for special occasions .  I'm hoping for blue skies and sunshine again as I would like to do some more seaside painting.....just got to get rid of a tiring flu bug first .....:/ ......... PS get the brushes back out! :)

White space
It all started with Honeybee.  She was always attracted to warm bright
colours, what honeybee isn't and so her bedroom reflected her personality;
vibrant, creative and busy like any little worker bee.  ORANGE! 
All four walls.  No one could ever
say it wasn...
