We have a pretty big and rather wild garden here...
and there are big ancient trees
with fairies in them..
I am sure..
and as I love anything old..
with a story to tell
I love decorating the garden
with pieces of history too
such as this old laundry copper..
with its rusted out base, no longer able to hold washing water
but perfect for a tub full of growing colour..
and a broken antique pink wash bowl
cupping some pansies..
it was an ebay purchase years ago.
lets just say to any ebay sellers out there
~ DO NOT PACK CHINA WITH CHUNKS OF FOAM AND EXPECT IT TO ARRIVE IN ONE PIECE ~
sorry I thought I had moved on about this ebay purchase breakage
hmm where was I..
wandering the garden ~
a 1930's cane laundry basket
carries some more white pansies down the steps..
whilst by the back door
an antique French wagon found on the side of the road (true story ~ have you seen how fast I can get side of the road finds into my little hatchback car?)
holds a pot of more floral pretties..
An old broken enamel colander
on a weathered luggage trolley..
a concrete laundry trough to hold some Azaleas near the stables..
and a rusty old fountain near the back steps..
Coming along with finishing off the showroom too..
Doors are in
next the outside courtyard..
have to find a new spot for the washing line..
Totally gorgeous must haves this week at my ebay store and showroom
and some divine furniture too ~
