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.

Four Wheels On My Wagon

And I'm still rolling along!

So sorry for my lack of posts lately, my little booth, and workshops are taking up a lot of my time, but it's all good. I found this little cart for outside the shop to put my plants in, I painted it up and am rather pleased with it.

It may be a little early for some of these plants as it is still a little cold here, but I couldn't resist a splash of colour.

A recent view of my booth.

Spring must be in the air as I have been selling furniture at the moment, a little nest building going on.

This is my new area at the front of the shop.

The furniture painting workshops are proving very popular. These were taken at our last class.

My niece had her baby a little girl called Emili Ann, she is just gorgeous, and we are all a little bit in love.
I just wanted to let you know what I've been up to. Now I am off to see what you have all been up to. I hope you all have a wonderful week, love Linda x.

    Your new space is B E A U T I F U L ! I am so pleased to see how your presence in the shop has evolved! First, in the front, and now "out front" with that sweet little flower cart! I wish that I could attend one of your classes! Congratulations, Linda!

  2. Your shop looks so pretty. And the workshops look great fun.
    I'm doing lots of catching up , as had no laptop for a while. Then will start posts again. The flower cart is beautiful.

  3. Dear Linda,

    Congratulations on the birth of your little niece! What a pretty name she has. I enjoyed seeing photo's of your shop. It looks beautiful, both from the outside and inside! Wish you lived closer by, so that I could come to one of your classes.

    Happy week ahead & thank you for your sweet comment on my blog too!

  7. Dear Linda,

    How wonderful it was to see you kind comment on my blog this evening and my journey to your beautiful shop in Ireland has been more than worth my while! I can only imagine how busy you must be creating and selling such beauty. Spring is in the air in your corner of the world and I send you hearty congratulations on the birthy of your sweet little niece.


  8. Dear Linda: I just found your blog, and so happy I did. A flower shop with beautiful furniture and a wagon full of flowers. Life doesn't get any happier than that! I am a regular at one of my local Garden Centers. Sometimes on a rainy day, I will wonder around the fresh flower section to breathe it all in. The Owner lets me open the refrigerator doors to get a collective scent of gorgeousness. So glad I dropped by. ~Kathleen
