Stage 1 of girlyfying the garden has started!!
This is basically a picture story so I will let the
pictures do the talking...

Doesn't it look really lovely? Like a beach hut? It isn't quite finished yet, but the wooden step at the front is a bit rotten and damp, so I think I may have to replace that!

We had fun painting it and I think the Big Shed now needs a birthday and could well end up the same colours seeing as we have plenty of paint left!!!

Time to move the planters back and scrub the children!!

I have been a busy girl...

I had 2 spare places on 2 walls that I needed to fill, so I bought some canvasses the right sort of shape and size for the spaces.

I wanted one to be blues and the other greens.

Any of you who know me at all you will know that flowe
rs is my thing, so flowers was the plan.

Bit fuzzy sorry! but you get the idea!

Green.... not sure if I have finished this one but its on the wall..

The Wonderful Place I live!

I wanted to share with you all the fantastic pictures I took last Saturday when my 2 beautiful girls and I went for a jolly on the Gower!
See Wonderful! I love this time of year when everything is waking up and bursting into flower.... The weather is back to the usual spring, changeable that we in the UK (especially Wales) are used to. It is cardigan weather! Lovely, warm but fresh and blowy!

Last weekend was wedding central!!
1stly the biggy, Willia
m and Katherine tied the knot on Friday (as we all know!)
and then on Saturday....

My friend's Paul and Dee had their Reception (they got married in Gretna Green on the 16th April)

Dee wore her big white dress for the 2nd time and Paul wore his tartan (he's a Forbes so had a proper family one!!) I as the "Matron of Honour" co-ordinated, along with Dee, the rest!! Starting with flowers that were a disappointment, Dee ordered the flo
wers (silk so she could have them for the 2 events) from the same lady who made her tiara. The bouquet was BAD! So... I ripped it apart and made a new one!!! We decided not to hire the table centres from this lady, so I (with 2 weeks to spare) talked to a friend in the school yard who is a graphic designer and has her own wedding stationery business, her mum did the table centres for us! Fab job, thanks to both Gemma and her mum Jan!

Dee and Paul had invited close family and friends to arrive at the Reception at 6pm for photos, and then inside for the starter and main courses, with speeches after. The "evening" guests were invited to "Dessert and Dance" the dessert was a personal triumph!!! I used my contacts (friends) that I have made through the various markets that I have been at regularly, and Clare from Little Welsh Deli and Rachel from Cupcakes by Rachel are 2 of the bestest and most wonderful cake makers I know.... added to this Becca's amazing "Fancy Vintage China" to display it all on and a few little chocolate touches here and there and this is w
hat you get!.....

Looked amazing didn't it?! I am very impressed that it all came together so beautifully, and Dee and Paul had a wonderful evening.
