On Friday I braved the weather and went to Stansted Garden Show, an annual excursion I always look forward to.
I came home with some nice items but, as usual, more will find their way into my home than onto the website! I have several of these rusty 'obelisks' dotted around the garden and they look lovely grouped together supporting climbing roses and honeysuckle etc. I shall also keep the screen for myself as it will make a great backing for photos. I'm not keen on the brown colour but, at the same time, don't want to cover it with new paint.
I loved this living willow 'gazebo'.
I bought my husband this beet fork (such a romantic present!). It will go with some other vintage tools we have in the kitchen and it bears his initial on the handle.
As well as lots of plants, vintagey and craft stalls there are lots of exhibitors eager for you to try their homemade foods. I came home with the most delicious basil and tomato cheese and rose petal jam ( I am a fan of jam and cheese together on crusty bread but think I would draw the line at a mixture of these flavours!)
Last week I went to an antiques centre and bought myself this beautiful copper saucepan. It is a very unusual shape being oval
and an old advertisement for Newcastle Brown.
able to make lots of these, modifying the shape and using different glazes.
