Swanning About

Last year, I fell in love with this swan bed! Admittedly, it isn’t to everyones taste but the idea of waking up encased in the body of a swan seems idyllic to me! It now appears that the imaginary day of one day getting a birdy bed may also be taken al fresco with a swan bench…

SWOON!

Outdoor Love

When we moved to our new home, I was fortunate enough to be able to have my own little studio/workshop in the garden and, with the arrival of Spring, it is a really inspiring place to be. On a day like today I open the double doors and have all the windows open, so I am pretty much working outside. It’s heaven!

Here are a few outdoor lovelies which I have been collating on my Pinterest page. Maybe I should plan an extension on the H&G HQ?

{Sorry for the blogging absence – I have been unwell for the last few weeks so have been taking some time out!}

Soon

Yesterday evening, I sat outside in my garden at 5.30 and it was only just starting to go dark and the air felt spring – like. Bulbs are starting to come up, announcing that gardens will soon be lush green and blooms of colour will soon be with us. Until the time comes, I have decided to fill my home with spring time colours…

Hope you all had a lovely weekend!

Entertain

The sun is shining and we’re about to embark on a three day weekend, and for this reason I am going to divert away from my weekly ‘Friday Four’ to bring you a little outdoor inspiration.

As soon as the sun comes out, I love to enjoy this time of the year with family and friends in a beautiful park or garden. To get you all in the Bank Holiday mood, here are a few stunning outdoor party ideas…

Happy Friday!
