THE VINTAGE GARDEN - THE COTTAGE GARDEN - SPRING IS ON ITS WAY
Now that Winter and the long dark nights have passed, I am prompted to start thinking of ideas for the Spring both for the home and garden - I have been looking through the seed catalogues and moving forward from this the Vintage theme is deifnitely here to stay for foreseeable future - both in the home and garden - so I have had some great ideas for the vintage garden. Now is the time to start planning so that the garden looks absolutely sensational in the coming months.
I stumbled across some great finds at a recent Antiques Fair and have boought some pieces for my website - TALKINGPOINTSINTERIORS.CO.UK
The items in particular include vintage rusted plant supports - single stakes, rose frames and plant lobster pots all of which look fantastic propping up and supporting such lovelies as peonies, delphiniums and foxgloves - where the usual plain bamboo canes just dont cut it - i am also getting some vintage plant supports, ever increasingly difficult to source ganvanized dolly tubs, pots and sap pots - vintage/shabby chic wirework candle chandaliers, planters and more - watch this space
Other items coming to the website as a spin off will include vintage inndoor and outdoor votive/candle holders with drop detail crystals, table chandaliers and lots more
