We are gardening, installing and designing gardens madly at the moment....well I suppose it is spring....and having a ball with all this lovely green growth, blossom and flowers shining at us.
Suddenly this week, I've realised Christmas is just around the corner....and although its sometimes better not to think about it, I have promised the Christmas decorations in store and looking fab by 1st November. So this Tuesday, we are rearranging and setting up for all those lovely things Christmas brings.
But in the meantime, there is a lovely story I would like to share about finds at Chelsea.
When I was at Chelsea in May, I stumbled across a small stall there that was connected to a foundry which did the lovliest sculptures. We weren't really intersted in things like this as it was a bit impossible to take home, but for some reason we were drawn in.
When I returned home, I pondered the idea of having a few special things like this in the store from the clever and lovely man, Robert from Felix foundry who was making these little treasures.
He hadn't ever considered sending things to Tasmania little-own Australia and really the these walnuts were sort of a side line ....but being generous of nature and with my wonderful powers of persuasion... I convinced him that it would be perfect to have them in my little store on the other side of the world.
