Early February

Pretty indoor displays of Spring bulbs planted in birch pots and mossy pots.
Our lovingly handmade Rosebud pomanders make a pretty accessorize to hang in the bedroom or bathroom



A really useful little cupboard that would suit any room.  Displayed here with a French side table, an old Tekno bowl and few new French finds. 
Beautifully clean and sparkling – a antique French mirror and Eastern European preserving jars.  They make the best vases.
Baby hare displayed amongst the gardenalia and some vintage style motoring signs and posters. 

A mixed selection on the shelves – a pair of new crowns, two pot holders, antique rice measure and a Irish country shelf hook and drawer unit.

Please enquire about any of these items whilst they are in stock.

This stone cherub is a cast copy from a Victorian original.  Decorative for both inside and out.

Just made today.  Everlasting Peonies, Gypsophila and Sea Lavender.

Some new purchases in the shop, an old glass terranium, Swiss Cheese plant and succulents.

Something new to try is the fish soap on a rope.

Our dress displays small pieces of new and vintage glass with old pottery pots and our favourite French soap, Lavender broyee and Rose petal. 

In great condition is this old French post sack displayed on a small Hungarian bench.

Upstairs merchandise.

Our garden is now beginning to show some beautiful colour.

The Honeysuckle just keeps on flowering (L. Serotina).

Some changes to the bed this year includes removing the Lavender edging to make way for more plants!!!

And finally for a bright splash of colour is the Canna, seen here with the rusty poppy stakes which still remain the best seller in the shop year round.
