Summer Open House..this weekend

One day I will hold my summer open house in brilliant warm sunshine without a cloud on the horizon. Then I will fill my terrace with tables piled with jugs, lamps and containers of summer flowers and display the cushions on the garden chairs in my greenhouse just as I envisaged when it was renovated five years ago. To be fair it has happened but it may have been a September rather than a June sale but this weekend the forecast is for breezy showers so I've displayed all my summer stock inside.

The garden looks summery from the window where the standard lamp is displayed.
However I am determined summer will reign (get it?) indoors where Pimms and summer berry cupcakes are on offer or perhaps a pretty pink Kir if you prefer.
Hope you'll come along and enjoy; ring or email if you need directions

I love this pretty set of drawers in perfect condition, lovely for stationery or sewing bits

I've placed it alongside the fabulous stone lamp and a glass bottle full of valerian from the garden

I've brought flowers inside as the rain has prevented enjoying them outside

I'm hoping to sell this lovely grey French table; a really lovely example which would be great indoors or out. I love the top which resembles zinc

This collection of French stoneware jars looks very at home on the table

I've placed this retro anglepoise next to the 1960s pastel

This Lloyd Loom style chair is another piece which is happy in the garden or inside..just add cushions

Very sweet floral makes a pretty shade for summer

Another passion is enamel signs; love this classic French road sign
Hope you'll come along and enjoy a summery welcome


  1. Looks great - I'll be there!

  2. It all looks very tempting, shame I'm so far away!

    1. I'll be in London at the textile fair in Chelsea in October so perhaps we'll meet up then

    2. Great! I'll have to try to go to that one. I've nominated you for an award on my blog!
