New shop and warm garden days!

Oh I have to tell you something exciting! I've found a wonderful new little shop just 10 minutes by car from here, where they sell all this gorgeous Danish stuff like the things from "Greengate" and that in combination with the most delightful flowers! So lovely! I was so happy yesterday when I found this shop! For this time I'm broke and I've only bought some flowers, a pink kitchen brush and this little pink tin pot with polka dots (the flowers in this pot I've picked in my garden), but one thing is for sure, this is my new favourite shop!


I've spend the whole day in the garden today and had breakfast, coffee and dinner here:

Have you also spotted the iron chandelier in the tree? Here is a closer look:




There is nothing better for me than spending warm summer days in a beautiful garden!

Carol I love your chandelier and hope so much it doesn't rain here friday evening for my daughters graduation party so I can light mine and some of us can sit in the garden and enjoy the garden. Everything in your garden looks heavenly and the table just perfect to come sit at. Wish I was there to see it in person and take a stroll with you through all the beauty it holds PERFECTION! I also love the big white bird in that same picture to the right. I enlarged your pic (to see it even better :-) and can you tell me what is above the greenery at the bottom of the tree. another bird? Lovely, lovely garden Carol. I enjoy seeing it so much. Also liked reading about the shop.

Its so romantic and beautiful. Your chandelier is a nice idea too. I know the feeling when you have find something exciting and you want to show it to the whole world. Danish create much of nice stuff. Remember the "Ihana living shop" you mentioned some weeks ago? Their stuff is also from Danmark.

Und warum hab ich nicht so einen Laden in meiner Nähe? Warscheinlich wäre das für meinen GG ein Scheindungsgrund :-)
