I've got an update to my spring planting using recycled and quirky old homewares items. My dad read my recent post and sent me these images he took a few years ago whilst living in France. He was driving around Caylus, South West France, and came across this cast iron bed festooned with hanging pots outside the owners house.
What a fabulous way to recycle an old bed frame - and doesn't it just look gorgeous! It just goes to show what you can do with un-loved utilitarian housewares items and a little bit of creativity.
Thanks dad! My dad has his own very lovely blog full of his paintings from time spent living in France and Ireland that you can see here:
I am a Textile Designer, Ceramic Designer and Illustrator.
I am English but live in the cute country township of Kyneton, Australia. I love making things. I love collecting things. This is my Bowerbird collection.
What is a Bowerbird?
Bowerbirds have a special characteristic close to my heart…… they are fond of collecting an assortment of found objects to be used purely for decorative purposes. Bowerbirds create beautiful structures, patterns and elaborate displays with their finds and can spend hours arranging their collection of precious knick-knacks.
