this is my excuse for the past couple of weeks ....I would like to introduce "Matilda" our beautiful little kitty who is now nearly 9 weeks old.... loads of fun, lots of little scratches (unintentional though) its the first time since moving out from my parent's home (more than 20 years ago) that i have a cat in the house , mostly due to my hubby insisting that he doesn't like cats! , but i think over the last 2 weeks he has changed his mind.....
Anyway this weeks finds ready to go into the shop[...... a real eclectic mix ....

the weather has been so unpredictable lately but happily does not deter my customers from venturing out to my little shop , thank you.....

I decided today to book myself into the vintage fayre at Cressing temple barns on Sunday 24th July , I have been ummming and aarring over the last few months but have decided to book in .

I will give more information over the next few weeks... have a good weekend...Hx

a little more Chelsea

A little bit more from Chelsea, the journey home was fun ... firstly finding a black cab that would take 4 adults and 10 potted roses from the free for all at 4 o` clock sell off ...we headed to the Harkness Roses stand , we bought 9 beautiful Roses for £60 all very fragrant .. all the people on the trains said how nice the carriage looked and smelled ..... although beautiful the thorns where still being plucked out of my hands on Sunday .... I am still deciding where to plant them ... but a lovely memory every time I look at them ... anyway back to work tomorrow (Thursday) get the window ready for the open Garden event in Great Bardfield this Sunday 5th June ... I think as far as gardens go the Bardfield gardeners do a fabulous job to rival any Chelsea exhibit... definitely worth a visit if you are in the area from 1pm. I will be wandering around with my family and friends looking for some tips ... have a good week....Hx
