Parham House and Gardens Garden Weekend

Apologies for being so quiet lately-I strangely haven't been in much of a talking mood. Do you ever get that yourself? All through my life words have often failed me and it seems as I get older they don't work for me even more so. I wish I could be more like someone like Stephen Fry or such who has such a good way with words and expresses themselves in such an elegant and interesting way. I guess that's one of the reason I do a job that gladly doesn't rely on words very much. Things have been kind of busy. I guess it's better to be busy than have nothing to do at all. Here is some of what I have been up to lately.

Parham's Garden Weekend, the weekend before last was really good fun. Here are some pictures of my stall there

Not the best picture of them but those green leafs are brand new bowls with little butterflies and dragonflies just resting on them 

The Garden Markers were popular and sold well- 'No Snails Allowed' were peoples favourites-if only snails could read!

Poetry Bird Feeders I was talking about- they are inscribed with poems by Emily Dickenson and 'Wings' by Victor Hugo

 The stall was decorated with fern leaves I brought from home- I love ferns (if you can't guess)

Last Saturday I was at Barties Boutique in Worthing selling me wears. It was Bartie's first birthday too and as a not for profit outfit Barties have raised £900 for Cancer Research! Isn't that great?!

I hope everyone has a great week ahead-Gosh I hope the weather cheers up too! 


  1. That bird feeder is inspired. I don't know about snails but our place has been slug-city recently.

  2. Hi- well, I think words are in the eye of the beholder. Best to be you. I have times where silence is best. Would love to see a closeup of the bird feeder. here the squirrels would get into that so easily. Looks like it could be a good bird bath too.

  3. The bird feeders are fabulous, so much more creative than the normal stuff out there, I love all your items xxx

  4. Thank you for the compliments! :)
    I know what you mean Bella-our place is slug central at the moment-maybe I should make a slug sign's hard to make a slug look cute though. I love all animals but slugs are such ugly creatures!
    I will post some pictures of close up photos of the bird feeders very soon - they are proving very popular at my other places too :)
    Yes Amy they would be just as good as bird baths -
    particularly if squirrels are a nuisance. Thanks guys and will be back soon x
