A Few hours pottering

 This week i was reminded about plants in my garden reading other bogs like , The scent of Roses (sorry the link did not work ) about herbs and about the Tulips , They both reminded me off things in my garden , The Tulips came all the way from Amsterdam a present from our daughter last year , They are only just starting to flower , They are  open tulips  


The Herb planter is coming on  this year , I am going to plant some salad leaves around the edge as apparently salad is going to increase in price this year due to a bad winter  which i really can't understand as its grown in the summer. 

The shrubs i planted to give us some privacy are growing quite tall now , some  of them have a long way to go though.

They will be much better when they are all in bloom. 

Love this bridal bouquet thingy ( notice i am not an expert gardener lol ). 

This was a reduced plant three years ago and its spreading to much now so i am passing some onto my neighbour. 

I am not sure if it would do this good or not to prune it , What do you think. 


OMG Just found out i have now 100 followers , Not much to some bloggers but its a milestone for me , Thank You for following, Eileen xxx

As you know my regular readers I have not been blogging for a while , I needed a break , I  even forgot where the new post button was as its been so long  , Things have been just the same here, health wise investigations go on , I will be seeing a chest specialist to find out why i have a raised diaphragm and possibly a  CT scan but i won't bore you anymore , I just wanted to show you some of my beautiful finds from the past few weeks.  

Two gorgeous mirrors 

 The ottoman has its original paint and fabric , The top was covered in a layer of plastic so it has protected the fabric.

This crinoline lady tablecloth is from New Zealand and has its original label.  

You can probably see a glimpse of the bedroom makeover in the mirrors but as yet i have still not found any curtains that go or fabric to make them with , But i will and as soon as i have i will do the reveal. 

Back soon xxxx

Catching up

I have been busy trying to source new stock at affordable prices for my business and i think i have now found the sources i can use regularly, So fingers crossed the next financial year will be better. Here are some of the jewellery  pieces. 

The pea pod brooch is trifari 

The cross and chain has a mark of either ZZ or NN , Does anyone know who the maker is please.

I have also discovered shpock and sold a couple of my old mirrors towards the cost of our holiday.

I am also selling some of the bits from our old house , Hopefully when the holiday comes along i will have covered the cost of the holiday.

On the frugal side , I buy sainsbury's T shirts and have never had a problem with them they are only £4.00 but the red one stained my  new white bra. I complained to sainsburys and they offered me the cost of the T Shirt but i wasn't happy with that so it was escalated to there specialist complaints department ,I had to send photos for proof , In the end i was refunded £30 to my nectar card ,So it pays to stand your ground.

Going round in circles

Well the ultrasound has come back clear , The Doctors words , Nothing sinister is causing the raised diaphragm which is fantastic news  but she wants    me to see the neurologist again as it can be caused by neurological conditions , So i have an appointment in march as the neurologist is on holiday for the next three weeks.

Fairground ride comes to mind .

Anyway getting on with things as you do, 
 This is the most gorgeous original  1960's gold thread crimplene  fabric  , That for some really frustrating reason wont photograph its true colour. Its gold. 

Some fabulous 1940s family photos  

1936 cast flying Ducks 

 I forgot about these lurking in my cupboards
