    Default Shabby Gardens and Sheds

    I have been saving loads of photos that I find around the internet world trying to find inspiration for my garden. I thought that I would share them with you.



    I love the use of old boxes etc for shelving in this photo.


    I this one I love how all the everyday gardening objects look decorative.I am definitely going to do this.



    I am definitely going to get myself some galvanised metal watering cans and buckets for planters too.

    Remember these aren't my photos and I can't remember where they are from either.

    They are lovely VP.

    There is a specialist glass shop near us which has started selling vintage items.. kitchenalia, garden stuff etc.. and they had a wad of those kind of items (in the pictures) stacked outside the shop last time we went..

    I didn't buy anything because I felt guilty, but I may go back for another look now.. they had a pile of rusty individual madeleine tins..wish I'd bought them, they would have made fab candle holders.

    I so hope and dream that we get a garden when we get council accomodation (4 1/2 years in this flat have almost driven me crazy) so if anyone out there prays to God, please pray He'll have mercy on us and move the council to allow us to have one.

    FTtea= Fair Trade tea. Some is dire (like Tradecraft) but M&S use a good one, more like Clipper.

    Chocolate Rocks are so scrummy, raisins, biscuit, marshmallow all in lovely think chocolate mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

    (I'm drooling ..............slurp )

    Thanks VP, this is giving me further inspiration for the little ones play house. Have you seen Sandib's summer house? http://dancingonabladeofgrass.blogspot.com/

    Don't know how impressed he will be with my plans, but I am seeing lots of pots and flowers outside. Do you think I could get away with gingham curtains? He has asked for a rug, so I think he is on a similar wavelength!

    I have been making lanterns out of sweetcorn and golden syrup cans with holes punched in from a couple of early posts by Daisy and Dave. They look lovely, but I keep leaving it too late to get a good pic!
