Greetings dear friends & readers & Happy Friday to you all.
I hope the week has treated you kindly ?
I must confess I am still undecided whether I 💓💓 it or not but I have put my paints & brushes away for now as I am tired of it all. I think I would really like to paint the wooden fire surround but it is native Rimu & I think The Mr would have an apoplectic seizure if I painted it so I have decided not to push my luck as I have gotten away with painting quite a bit of native timber around here lately 😉

I removed the half dead maidenhair fern from my duck planter, gave it a scrub, then painted it with a pale pink chalk paint ... I repotted my poor root-bound Peace Lilly & it fits nicely in the duck planter & I am hopeful it will flower again.

For a long time I have wanted to put together a Spring Tablescape but spring will be finished here in another couple of weeks so perhaps I will aim for this next spring. In the meantime I finished off a lovely stitchery I had been working on from Jenny of elefantz design's stitchery club that I belonged to. The pattern is called Nana's Jug of Posies ... but I added the words to the bottom as I had in mind my spring display.
Do you remember back in this post when I made the suitcase planter for my lovely friend Jane's 50th birthday ... well she sent me this photo last night of how it is thriving. I was rather tempted to reply & say "I'll have it back now thanks" 😉 It looks stunning & I love the colour combination of the petunias 💕
Thank You all So Very Much for your visits here today dear friends,
I hope you have a wonderful weekend - the sun is shining here 💛
Be kind to yourselves & to each other,
With much love & friendship,
Julie & the furry ones x0x0x0
