A New Friend

I bought this young lady home from Mr VL's work (I am occasionally allowed to raid the Garden nursery's gorgeous gift shop)

She is  lime washed terracotta 

She is perfect for displaying my vintage bridal headpiece collection...rotating them

A vintage fabric covered chocolate box

1950's book...50c ( $30 on Ebay!)

This was the last week of the Prunus trees in blossom

2 days was spent planting out shrubs, camellias , roses and topiaries
