What I Found this Week

It was such a gorgeous Spring day I took a trip to the beautiful Barossa Valley with a friend and a trawl of the charity, antique and second-hand shops

I love this delicate Pyrex test tube...perfect for a flower

 A very large chippy pale blue painted laundry basket already in use

a very useful woven  cane food cover

In the spring garden this week
