In other news, I dyed my very favourite dress using avocado stones … it’s come out so patchy. I did everything I usually do but alas, it’s a disaster.
Of course the worst bit is the front, most visible part. Any thoughts to remedy this? It was from Lithuania so getting a replacement will be tricky.

Week 1..lockdown 2 ..

The first day of lockdown brought autumn cleaning , all the candles being lit ( has there been a power cut? .. they said) and James Morrison.

It felt so odd this morning not to be packing my basket and heading into our little shop.
Instead the shop can come to you.

These slouchy socks are rather beautiful, the smaller size will be back in stock soon but we still have a few pairs of the men’s size.

My aim is to walk much more every day during lockdown. I have noticed, since social distancing, that in our little shop I have become really rather stationery and slug-like. Rather than bat about all the time, I am mostly sat safely behind my perspex screen, with my chocolate tin. Not now though, my Nell and I will make up a flask, and come rain or shine, head off.
Navigation isn’t my strong point so this should be fun.

We can Help ..

The shop is filling with beautiful things, the days can be bright and  dazzling, or the sunshine hardly appears and it doesn’t really get light, so candlelight at 11am is the thing ... gorgeous and calming.

IMG_4953.jpeg

As going out shopping may be a little tricky for some people, browsing online can be a lovely alternative ( or even better than going out and everything being a little too people-y.

IMG_4975.jpeg

We have put together a collection of our favourites things which we think , most people, even the trickiest on your present list, will love to receive . . Just go to shop.thepottingsheds.com to visit our online shop.

IMG_4945.jpeg

We can be your personal shoppers, parcel gifts up for you, and pop them in the post, or if you fancy a little change of scenery, you can come and visit us , have a coffee and some fresh air, and pick up for yourself. 

IMG_5013.jpeg

Either way, this weirdo time doesn’t mean that things are cancelled or all the giddiness has disappeared ... no way.  We can just do things beautifully differently.

If things feel a little overwhelming, this little saying always makes things feel better.

Wreaths and the such like ..

IMG_4260.jpeg

Workshops ..

We have made the tricky decision not to run any of our Winter workshops in our little shop this year. To do them safely and comfortably in our small space we feel, would be difficult.

IMG_4217.jpeg

We are however, offering a “wreath at home” box.
This will be a box, delivered locally to your doorstep (you can collect if not) which includes ..

a copper wreath ring

a reel of wire

moss

beautiful foliage

ribbon

simple written instructions

Everything you need to create your own wonderful winter wreath. We will also be doing a little video ( good lord how terrifying) which you can watch if you need a little extra help!!

IMG_4176.jpeg

The box will cost £25, and we think would make a gorgeous early gift for someone , or just a lovely thing to do in your own home.

IMG_4257.jpeg

I can of course make a wreath for you if you prefer. These will cost £35 and our order book is now open.

IMG_4338.jpeg

Please email shop@thepottingsheds.com to place an order or ring me on 01704 823313 if you need and help.

Thank you xx

A day out and things to Come ..

So off we go ... a day out, a big walk and a picnic. 

You know it’s going to be a good day when you look down in the trusty patio doors mini and this is in the footwell. 

IMG_3803.jpeg

The Ribble Valley really is stunning . The plan was to have a breakfast picnic, go on a big walk, and then a lazy lunch picnic. A perfect day.

IMG_4165.jpeg

We found a spot. The breakfast picnic was gorgeous ... we chattered, decided that to live by a bubbling brook would be lovely, and then we realised that hours had passed by so, the walk was a good idea. 

IMG_4168.jpeg

Off we set, leaving behind our completely perfect spot. 4 minutes into the hill walk, we had aching legs and chattering was rather tricky due to hardly being able to breathe. 

IMG_4173.jpeg

Not long after this we turned round and returned to our perfect spot for our lazy lunch. Gin went into the river to cool and the rest of the day was idyllic.

.

.

IMG_4167.jpeg

This is a possible relocation spot, it has the bubbling brook and the best picnic spot you can imagine. Thank you to the picnic provider, it was lovely. My go next. 

IMG_4166.jpeg

In other news..

We have had many enquiries about wreaths and workshops. Our wreath order book is filling up nicely, thank you. If you would like to order one please email shop@thepottingsheds.com or phone me on 01704 823313.
We are just deciding about the viability of running workshops just at this moment, I shall let you know about this next week. 

IMG_4176.jpeg

We will however be offering a “wreath at home package”. 

IMG_4177.jpeg

This will be a box, delivered to you locally (you can collect if not local) containing everything you need to make your own wonderful Christmas wreath. Beautiful foliage, a copper wreath ring, a reel of wire, moss and ribbon, plus written instruction will be included.

IMG_4175.jpeg

This may be a lovely thing to do with a friend in your own home if you prefer to stay in your own little bubble.

Details of this will be sent out shortly. 

Have the loveliest day xx
