Our Garden

We have been doing a lot of work on our garden recently. We completely re designed the area, got rid of the old overgrown hedge and made a new decking area. It is a still work in process and I don’t think you should half fast things.

So, it will probably take another few years for all my plants to grow to the size I want them to and no, not everything will get finish this summer. But this is what it looks like now.

I used Instagram to take these pictures and as you can see the right had corner is still looking very poor and bold.

So I planted some lovely perennials there that I got from Greenfingers.

These were on the offer.

I planted them last November and they are just coming out now. I will keep you posted on the progress.

Paint it yourself – Ceramic Skulls

Last spring I stumbled on this cool coffee shop in Greenwich.  What makes this place cool is that they offer paint your own ceramic parties! It is a popular place for a hen night & kids parties… I went there for a quick cuppa and bought two of their ceramics skulls (for him&her). As I was in an artist rush to paint them myself I havent took any pictures of them before.  But I did find exactly the same skull picture on net. So this is what they/it look like before the paint. (without the golden tooth) 🙂

And this is what they look now. I went for a mexican candy look.


I used deluxe paint for wood that I bought  in Homebase a few months before to paint my tired & plain wood kitchen chairs. But more on them in another post.

What do you think?
