Hare kitchen cupboard door


One of my kitchen cupboard doors had gone all wrinkly, having nothing to loose, I pulled off the offending inner panel, painted it dark grey ( it took several coats) , stencilled these lovely hares in copper, followed up by several layers on Matt varnish.

It’s been returned to the kitchen & it looks fantastic.

Out & about at RHS Hyde Hall (UK)


We decided to visit the craft fair at Hyde Hall today, I was extremely good & didn’t buy anything.

I managed some wildlife photography, a little mouse watched us eat our sandwiches, but skittered back into the bushes as soon as I picked up my phone.

I now have plenty of ideas for the front garden makeover, I think it’s going to take a while. As currently our front garden is a huge holly tree & box, that has attracted box caterpillars, so is starting to look rather unattractive. Oh & quite a few weeds.

And finally some more wild life photography. The sun shone & we had a lovely day out. I didn’t buy any plants either, but loads of ideas.



I’ve been decorating again this week, the stairs are finished, they were hard work 😓. Luna seems to think they have changed height & is not sure about them. I’ve put a non slip mat at the bottom for her, so she doesn’t hurt her back. Flooring to finish. I think we might be almost done with this phase of decorating. Why are you always left with a couple of baskets of detritus, too good/ useful/ needed ; but with no home 🤔.
