- Hello and welcome to my blog. If you like flowers and gardens, housey stuff, food and banter, then this is the place for you. I am a decorative artist, florist and maker of things. I sell painted furniture, plants and crafts, through a local retail shop, in my native Ireland, and wedding flowers from home. I am married to a lovely patient man and have a smashing little girl. I blog for the fun of it. Thank you for listening.

These are not the most wonderfully worked items you have ever seen, but they should last at least a few washes and they are a bit of fun. Now to those of you who say...poo hoo, a tea cosy, not on your nellie,woul
dn't be seen dead with one of those old fashioned things, I say, think on, when you brew your pot of tea and then get carried away blogging, and forget your tea (or coffee), never fear, if it is ensconced underneath one of my cosies it will stay hot for.......ages!
I have been Picniking again! Some images from the garden, the Escallonia hedge is wonderful this year and it is a very big attraction for the bees. The peas are coming along nicely! The Pinks, I bought last year after hearing a T.V. gardener sing their praises. I have to admit, I am a bit snobbish about Carnations in flower arrangements, but decided to give the Pinks a go, and they are tremendous, they have so many buds on this year and will keep flowering all summer, and if I call them Pinks or Gillyflowers, then I rather like them!
