G'day sweet bloggers, how you doing?
Wow, thanks for all the Powder Room love, so glad you liked it, I didn't expect that…
Today I've been gardening, I kinda half-heartedly planned to get started on those old vintage doors we found (just realised haven't even shown you them yet…divine) but truly after I had got all the chores done I didn't really fancy it. One of the perks of being a SAHM, the luxury of doing what you fancy…
So instead I did some gardening and planted out some more hydrangeas – these are pink and as I was busying around in the dirt, I thought how much I'm loving hydrangeas here – so vibrant and full of life, I know not why they seem to grow like wildfire in this climate, but I can tell you it works for me.
I got a bunch of these from a garage sale, a great price - an old Italian guy who certainly had a green thumb by the looks of what he had on offer. I would like to tell you that he was the sweetest old guy, wowing us with his immigration stories from the 50's and throwing us a good deal on our finds.
Alas, he actually knowingly sold us a dud garden hose, one of those twirly ones, you know? We saw it there and assuming that, as an avid gardener, he probably had a whole heap of twirly garden hoses (thought, you know, he was like me and old neglected pieces of furniture) and was just getting shot of a few of his stash. So, we asked him if it worked ok.
Well his body language told us no, I nudged Mr BC and we sorta giggled, but we took it anyway, along with our flowers and a couple of books…
A couple of days later we went to water and Mr BC popped the swirly hose on the tap, turned it on, it popped right off and in the process soaked him in water.
The moral of the story:
never trust a dodgy old guy at a garage sale, even if he does have a green thumb
never sell a dodgy hose at a garage sale…first they know where you live, second, you'll lose a hydrangea obsessed customer for life!
p.s. I've been experimenting with my photography skills and wanted a vintage soft look to this photo, have you seen that sort of look everywhere? I have, love it and decided to have a go…turned out like this, I think I might print this shot off as a notecard…
Anyone know a good place to get nice blank cards?
