Ok so my garden is now prety much finished! Needs a few more baskets put up but I'm not too fussed about that. So this is it before:
And this is now!
This is the adults bit. Got the furniture from focus, bargain at £150 for the set! Got the pillows from tx maxx. i LOVE the big squishy striped one. I now dont want to leave them outside so when not in use they live in our bedroom. Husband thinks I'm slightly mad but hey ho. lol. The plants are lavender (smells so good) and a big butterfly bush. :) Obviously when it grows ill need to move it but for the moment its staying there. The red candle holder was Marks first fathers day gift so wanted that to go somewhere special, while the blue ceramic pot my mum bought us for our first wedding anniversery. I love how things which have just lived in the garage for years now have a home. :)
This is my 'outdoor scrapbook' lol. You know how you have an image in your head for something but it doesnt usually turn out like that, this seems to be going really well! This trellis is actually from my sisters house but she kindly let me steal it, lol. So I tied some pots of herbs on it with garden wire and some small candle laterns. See my idea is that usually when we're away I collect lots of little things. Painted glass pots, plaques etc and this is where I'm going to hang them. :) That way its like a scrapbook of where we've been, but weather proof. lol. The little picnic table I boguht off a friend for £10, bargain. Its in desperate need of some paint but that just means I can do what i want to it. :)
This is the kids side. Honestly, rain, sun, freezing winds they are out here. I love how I can just let them play and not worry :) I LOVE MY GARDEN!!!!!!
I have done some scrapbooking but my mojo seems to have died. :( Not got much to do tomorrow so plan to have a scrapping day. :)
