We often go for breakfast or coffee on the weekend at a little cafe a short drive from our home. Beside the cafe is an old house with a massive garden in both the backyard and frontyard. An old sun-beaten woman of few words goes back and forth between the garden and her garage selling flowers and produce from her garden. Today for a total of $20 we bought a bag of lemons, a large pumpkin, a punnet of baby tomatoes, 2 eggplants and 3 bouquets of wildflowers. She also sells huge pots of fresh herbs for $5 each.
I love coming home and spreading these lively colours throughout the house. Flowers truly bring happiness and sunshine into your home.
Here are just a few of the many arrangements in each room.
Here's a little lap project I sewed up one evening recently. I love the instant satisfaction of these handsewn toys. She has been a welcome addition to the ever growing Animal Kingdom in our jungle of a home.
Pattern bought here, where you can see much more skilled versions of these two.
