May I decopatch you? and some green goodness.

I think it's taking over, and it's thanks to the inspiration from Ladybird Diaries. I have an old chair (or two) that have seen much better days, so decided to have a go with some decopatch papers and paint...






I'm so pleased with it, I think it's so pretty. It was so easy to do, but is so effective :)




It was my first attempt and it hasn't stopped there... but I'll save that for another post.

Andy's been working so hard on our garden, laying some new patio slabs and gravel. It's looking so nice, just needs some more colour, but my flowers have been a bit neglected this year. Here is some of the garden goodness...

I think Fuchsias are so pretty

Lots of flowers budding

A row of Sunflowers

I love these baskets, the pale pinks are so delicate









We do have a very delicate girl at home. My poor baby Imogen dislocated her knee at school the other day. Her leg has been put in a brace (rather than plaster cast) so she can't bend it, and it's taking a bit of getting used to



Hopefully she'll be back to running and swimming again soon, even taking a shower right now sounds like a dream to her, bless her.

Take care

    1. Thank you. We didn't put the sunflowers out this year until they'd grown quite big, still a few nibbles though x

  8. Lovely chair Cheryl! Am going to google decopatch now as you've inspired me (I have a rather dusty old chair, hiding in the car, waiting to be sneaked out).

    Hope Imogen's feeling a bit better, poor lamb ...

  12. Oh my goodness, poor Imogen. I hope the knee heals quickly as it must be so uncomfortable having the brace on, not to mention the pain she's probably in with her knee. Your chair is lovely, so pretty, as is your garden, I love fuchsias too.

  14. I think this is a pink rather than a green post. Love the chair, love the pinky flowers, love the little pink wellie boots and would love your poor daughter to 'get well soon'.
    Love from Mum

  16. Oh I do hope Imogen's leg is soon better - how terribly painful that must be for her!
    Your plants and blooms are looking very healthy and gorgeous and your chair - YOUR CHAIR is fab! Did you find it tricky, getting into all the nooks and crannies with the deco patch? I've been meaning to give it a try but really must get up some initiative and just do it!
