Ticking those boxes.

I always feel deprived of time to address my 'TO DO 'list but the surprisingly stunning weather which graced our Sunday gave me a chance to start ticking some of those boxes.

Do you remember those funny French vintage enamel containers I showed you earlier in February?

They're ready.

Some have even made it onto the shop front!

And I've managed to change the window display too.The palette is a total contrast to the previous kaleidoscope of colours, with soft greys,creams golds and whites to name a few.

The wild fowl cushions are beautiful.They were made for me by a lovely local lady whose passion for perfection in sewing is very apparent. 

I'm hoping that no one buys this bag,then I can give it a good home.

I've got to go now but I wanted to end with these two shots. 
I feel a Burgundy phase coming on...

Beautiful items and I agree the bag is a keeper.

The tulip and pansy are add excitement

Lovely, lovely things! Did you paint those jugs? Does paint take over the chipped enamel or will it just peel again, in time?

If I were to pass your shop window, It would lure me your idea with the enamel vessels, so clever and make me want to do some planting!
Thank you for your visit to my blog, always welcome and appreciated.

The 'enema pots' look great. I have one that I use as a string ball container! Much better than their original use!! M x

Hoi Joasia,

Your enamel containers look lovely with the flowers inside! You are right. We like the same sort of things.

The shop window looks beautiful too. Is your shop in The Cotswold's? We will be staying there this summer. Perhaps I will come and have a look and say hello :-)

Happy weekend!
