Mid-Week on my Workbench and in the Garden

Two folding chairs, one in French Linen other in cream. Given a little French Oh La La.

Three nearly empty tins, so I've had to reorder!

 1945 Birds Custard advert.

Inside of a small wartime make do and mend cupboard I am working on. I've used adverts from The Picture Post magazine and hymn book pages on the shelves.

My new toy a Liberon polishing brush. Its fab and took me only 5 minutes to polish a stool. Trusty Bosch hammer drill and draper sander. My cheap drill has gone kaputt today. A girl just can't have enough tools.

Wonderful poppies survived the rain and wind.

A common aquilegia, that I have managed to take a superb photo of with my point ad shoot Canon!

Golden Showers climbing rose.

Love to hear what you all have been up to. x


  1. Looks like i have a bit of competition where gardening is concerned. Love your wild garden ....xx

    1. Thanks Linda. I don't garden it just grows after I put it in. This winter I am going to do a big tidy up. x

  2. Great hearing about your new tools - polishing brush sounds Amazing !! x
