Cath, Gisela, Emma and Me

Now that the warmer weather is finally here (sshh, don't say that out loud, the weatherman might here!) I have decided that what we could do with in the garden is a nice bench to sit on. (Actually, what we could really do with in the garden is a gorgeous summer house, but let's get back to the real world)
.
Me and my Mum went to our nearest garden centre which is near to Lacock to have a mosey round.
.
They have sheds to suit all budgets (not mine though sadly).
.
If money was no object, then this would be perfect:

.
Or this:
.

.
Not wanting to waste our time there, we had a rummage round the "bygones" section. I'm not going to mention too much about that on this post as I have a cunning plan up my sleeve for later in the week..... but here is a sneak preview:

.
We also had a nose round their gift shop, and look at one of the displays:

.
My, aren't those doorstops and carrier bag holders lovely?
I wonder who could possibly have made them?
Don't they fit in well with the Cath Kidston and Gisella Graham products?
.
They're mine!!!!
.
The garden centre placed my first ever wholesale order with me last year and it would seem they still have some stock left. (To read more about the order, click here and scroll to the bottom.)

Here are some of the other displays:

Pretty stuff
.

.
Basket of wooden birds ...
.
.
... for your birdcage of course!
.

.
More pretty stuff
.

.
Emma Bridgewater
.

.
Gorgeous silk flowers ... even I can't kill these!
.
I love this garden centre! I mean, how often can you go to the one shop, see lovely plants, gorgeous vintage items for your garden, sheds and summer-houses to drool over, lovely gifts .... and Moshulu shoes!?
.
They didn't have these in my size, which is probably just as well ....
.

.
Anyway, back to the bench situation, I quite like either of these:

Okay, neither is strictly a bench, I know, but they are almost a summer-house and a girl needs to be shaded from the sun!

Lovely arbours too, They definately look nicer when they're painted in pretty ice-cream colours.
