Well it's not very spring like here today and after planing a quiet weekend at home, I was hoping to get some gardening done. That's totally out of the question, as gardening is no fun in the rain, even the dog doesn't fancy a walk. So I've managed to spring clean my bedroom everything been washed, polished or hoovered. On the plus side of 2 large bin bags for charity/recycle and a small rubbish bag I now have room for new clothes! Every rain cloud :) On the down side, I realise there is 7 more rooms to go. Next weekend I'm planning to socialise, quiet home time is too much like hard work. Here's some Vintage cleaning tips if you feel a spring clean coming on, or you could just scroll past until the feeling passes!

I've had a little energy left and decided to have a spring clean sale in my shop 15% off. www.etsy.com/uk/shop/Prettyvintagehouse?ref=seller-platform-mcnav§ion_id=1 I'll leave you with this latest cake stand and dome as I've really worked up an appetite for cake unfortunately baking is not my greatest talent, so a trip to the supermarket it is unless any of you do home delivery?
Living in a sleepy village near the banks of the humber can be pretty quiet. But one weekend of the year the villagers come together for the weekend For Barrow's barrows. It raises money for charity and the village. It's great fun for all the family especially when the sun shines. With open gardens and don't be fooled by a small cottage frontage the back garden is often bigger than a football pitch. Drinks, homemade cake and strawberries and cream available on the route in the pop charity coffee shops and gardens. Wheelbarrows decorated throughout and a mouse hunt for the little ones. Music, stalls, punch and Judy and not forgetting the horse and cart rides available in the market place. www.grimsbytelegraph.co.uk/whats-on/family-kids/record-number-wheelbarrows-go-display-1629391
I really should have took more photos' but I bought to many plants on my way round so had my hands full and they were only 25p a plant! So if you fancy a Sunday stroll next year remember the first weekend of June but get here early by lunch time it's really busy
I'm loving this pretty blue glass I found last week and think it makes a perfect bird feeder. So much more pleasing to the eye than some of the more modern ones.. This is now on display and available for sale at the The Gallery, something old, something new in Barton upon Humber. Here's some more of my designs, lets keep it pretty!
