It's time to make our weekday house more like home, to make it ours. we decided some of our trees needed to go.
and before you gasp! not real trees like oaks, cedars or elms, I'd move a house before I'd remove those trees, just prunus plums and fortinias and cypress.

The lorax.....

I love this little village we live in, and so do the children, I've lived half my life in a town that would now be called a city, but at the time I didn't see it that way.

The country life is in my blood, and even though I tried and succeeded in creating my own bit of paradise in the city,what was missing was community. The people here are engaged, they are strong and dynamic, and I love it.

The gathering apron's

This little pixie, who never conform's, decided to come up with his own way to wear the apron's, which actually worked.

They are great for collecting apple's, eggs, lavender, anything really, and when undone, perfect for kneeling on when gardening.

Thankyou Sarah over at cottage at frog creek for your free tutorial.
