Last Weeks Finds

We spent all of Friday shopping in the city and my better half patiently drove around to my favourite op shops . I found some very pretty table cloths , and a  water bottle.
I picked up this gorgeous old jar in a vintage market
We spent the rest of the weekend in the garden, so we popped into Mr VL 's nursery to pick up plants and I snuck into the giftware and brought a pretty bottle home
We weeded ,  mowed, trimmed miles of box hedge, planted tons of plants.
so much more still to do !!
Inside the house I finally have a walk in robe ...YAYY!!
The very first iris to open

  1. Your garden so beautiful. Loving the table cloths. I'm hosting a Travelling Linen Stash swap that you may like. Pop by the blog for a nosey xo

  2. Looks like you have nothing left to do in your new garden it's so pretty.

  3. I always enjoy the photos of your beautiful property. When you wrote that you finally had a "walk in robe" I was puzzled. I know a robe as a dressing gown or dress. Then I realized you meant a "walk in closet" for your clothes! Isn't the English language a real "kick." Linda@Wetcreek Blog

  4. fantastic views. and a walk in wardrobe! box hedges and old marmalade crocks are two of my fave things in the world!
