Hope you are all having a great week so far. I am in the midst of getting ready for the Christmas V&H fair this coming Saturday. I have loads of new goodies to sell as I have been busy buying and saving things ready for the fair.
I have been turning my hand to a little creative festive floristry in readiness for the fair. I have had these two beautiful cast iron urns for ages and have decided to part with them. They are planted up with Hyacinth bulbs and Moss, then finished with some vintage French initial tape. The pot in the centre is just simply planted with a Hyacinth and moss and finished with a large red wooden heart in an antique Sankey pot. The smaller two at the front are planted with moss with a fir cone wired and placed in to the moss then just finished simply with tape and small wooden hearts....very easy to do and looks quite effective. The pots and hearts can then be used for other projects when the Hyacinths have gone over.
When we arrived home last Saturday a lovely large parcel was waiting for me. Julie at The Cloth Shed had sent me these gorgeous presents for my forthcoming birthday...yes, it's that time of year again!
She has sent me a beautiful shabby chic faded floral drawstring bag, a framed fragment of antique quilt, two stunning hand made lampshades and a heart made from a vintage quilt, and my name in little wooden print blocks. The lampshades I am going to use in our bedroom when I have found two matching wooden lamp bases for the bedside tables. Thank you Julie, it was such a wonderful surprise, and I love them all.
Have a great week and hope to see you at the Christmas V&H fair on Saturday.
