Unexpected trip = unexpected finds
Once I got back I decided that I needed to go to Habitat to get some pots for my ever growing collection of herbs - I got the Jamie Oliver 30 minute meals book and have been buying herbs in pots to make some of the meals. Unfortunately I am not very good at keeping these herbs alive, they are looking a bit sad, even if they are in nice new pots. Must remember to water them more regularly. Luckily the pots were half price so happy days.
Anyway, whilst I was in Habitat I had a quick look around as they have their new range in and found the perfect cushion for one of the garden chairs. It is called Exmouth and is very reminiscent of the old Railway posters that have come back into fashion. How much do you want to be sat in the sunshine on that beach right now? This cushion was a bargain and will just fit in nicely with the ideas I have for the chairs/sofa. I only wish they did it in another design so I could have two. I am so tempted to buy some wool and crochet a stripey throw in these colours to wrap round us on chilly summer evenings. I feel another project coming on...
