Flowers and office update
Grateful for bank holidays this side.  Been digging and planting daughter’s garden, putting up fences and hanging bunting.  Hands have taken a beating and back is aching, but all in the name of love. The update on my beautiful King Fiddle Leaf Fig is that h...

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...

Bedroom Update
This is a funny time of year….Spring
has officially arrived, but it’s still cold…yesterday we had a sudden and
unexpected hail storm lasting about 10 minutes, leaving everywhere covered with
ice, the size of peas.  This morning the skies
were clear and blue...

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...

Refreshing for Spring
Happy 1st of April lovely people!  Our money has to go a long way
nowadays,  we've got holidays to plan
for, clothing budgets, in-case-the-geyser-breaks budget, the list is
endless…and usually no budget to update your home.  And as we've just entered spring...
