Country Garden update

You may remember in April I posted this photo of my garden 
 Since then I have done a lot of work 
Update Here

Well I thought you might like to see it

I am not completely happy with everything
way too much green
The apple mint has run riot
I have pulled a lot of it out this morning
but like all gardens this is a work in progress
and well, it's certainly an improvement

I am loving these outfits 
and the top knot, lipstick and attitude of the images
and the prints..........

Perfect dressing for summer in Ireland

Turn your Latte into Art

In Dublin a Latte will cost you €3 (average)
1 a day for a week = €21
If you made your coffee at home for 3 weeks 
and you could hang this on your wall

Monstera Silk screen print by Wayne Pate

six teapots by Wayne Pate

or this (you would have to abstain for 4 weeks for this one)
Still Life with Flowers and Moth By Bella Foster

I love this print of Central Park also by Bella Foster 
which unfortunately is sold out

Frame them in an IKEA Ribba frame
no coffee for 1 week
and you have framed original Art on your walls for a couple of Cappucinno's

Personalised Wrapping Paper

Yesterday was my Mother's Birthday

It was a significant one
I wrapped her presents in sheets of paper that I photocopied old photo's on to 
making a highly personal wrapping paper
I simply used A4 paper and glued 4 sheets together with glue stick for the larger one

It went down an absolute treat 

I twittered this yesterday and while I usually would not repeat myself it got such a huge reaction I thought I would post it here for those who missed it or don't twitter

and as one would expect it is beautiful, tasteful and highly covetable.

It is printed in England, on cotton sourced from Lancashire
