My house as a garden.



The walls in my home are of the palest duck egg blue, the kitchen and steps provide a bright cheery contrast of red and green, but all in all, the paint work is pretty serene. Clustered around every surface however, a different picture emerges and these little pieces end up creating a riot of colour in our home. They are like annuals, easy to move, great while there but eventually gather dust and need moving. My next step in my house the wild garden, is sewing cushion covers, I guess this counts as re-potting and I am sure it is time to start pruning our cupboards. The floor was mown today and the dishes washed though with slightly more care than my gardening tools at the end of a muddy day. Speaking of which, I had better tend to the small gnomes lurking in the shadows, make sure they are fed and watered. Just a few little thoughts... xxooxxooxx.

I love the analogy... and I really, really love your bravery with using colour, and all the colour 'vignettes' that pop up around your place. Glorious.

What gorgeous photos! The colours in the last one, with the stripy mug just make me dribble with pleasure, just LOVE that stripy mug. Have to take the dogs for a walk, then later I'll catch up properly on your growth spurt in the number of your posts. Those little legs of the new born! So precious.
Love Vanessa xxx (do you mind if i knit)
