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.

An Angel is coming to tea.

If I was entertaining Angels, this is the linen I would use. I received these delectables in the post yesterday from Lynn at Sea Angels blog. She is an incredibly talented lady and seems able to work in lots of different mediums. The teacup banner is on linen, part printed and part appliqued, it has machine and hand sewing on it as well, and is so gorgeous when viewed up close.

She sent it so beautifully wrapped and I meant to let you see it, but I had no battery in the camera, and I am afraid that I just could not wait to see what was inside.

 I wish you could see the detail on this little tag, it looks as if it is iced and has glitter and vintage lace, just delightful. I think this cupcake banner is adorable too. I can feel a kitchen makeover coming on, in honour of my new lovely linens!

This little parcel completely made my day,and to top it off, it was a beautiful day and I have lilacs on my table, smelling heavenly. The Angels have indeed visited me. Thank you Lynn, you amaze me!

Today is also a beautiful day. I'm off to the dentist, but once that's out of the way, I can have some fun making things. I painted some brushes for the shop (I must be mad), and am doing some more today, as well as making some bunting. Thank you for your visit, it is much appreciated. I hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday, with love, Linda xx.
