It's been a massive few weeks at the Picket Fence House. Spring has well and truly sprung and with it, life has sped up. We've been having a lot of fun in the garden (so fragrant and full of Spring time potential), We have finished a few projects around the house and we have had a mega exciting visitor (More about that later)
This is my front garden and the arbour Mr Picket Fence welded for me. It has a beautiful climbing rose called La marque growing up it. This year I've planted a Wisteria along side. Looking forward to the show next Spring. Mr Picket Fence told me I couldn't have a Wisteria here as the one I have by the side of the house needs so much maintenance. Lets tell him it self seeded :) I hear they sometimes do that ?
And we have a brand new little visitor, called Lucky, living in the kitchen until she is big enough to join the other hen's in the Hen's On Holiday Caravan. We adopted her from a friend, she thinks she's a person not a chicken.
My Antique advertising Window. I've finally had it put in. I am so happy with the way it looks and I think Mr Picket Fence is glad there's nothing else stuffed behind his cupboard. I have many things like this squirrelled away. I am indeed the queen of cupboard stuffing :)
Finally, this is even bigger news. The Picket Fence Fancy family had a visit from the amazingly talented photographer Tim Coulson . This guy blows me away. Completely. He photographs Families, Weddings and People in ordinary life. He and his wife Keshia rank highly in my beautiful people list. We will be on Tim's blog early in November. I'll tell you when, but in the mean time check his blog Tim Coulson Photographer Of The People out and like his Face book page to be keep updated with his beautiful work. He took the photo of me above ( shock horror you actually can put a face to "Ava") and this gorgeous shot below of Mr Picket Fence buying a Milkshake for Baby Picket Fence in a local cafe. I'll show you all of the photo's when he does, and you can really meet the Picket Fence Family. Oh and you should definitely have him visit you. That's a given :)
I am so grateful for all of the above things happening. Flowers, chickens ,antique doors and windows. I am grateful for photographers who do beautiful work and who are lovely to be around. I am also very very grateful to my new and old Picket Fence Followers for dropping by. Your gorgeous emails and comments, your love of colour and family, your joy in vintage treasure, and your friendship are so appreciated . If I haven't gotten back to you yet, I will soon. I'm ticking many things off my list this week. Thank-you emails are one of them. Stay tuned xx
