But oh dear, they look sad and not very inviting. In a flash moment of colour, I decided I was going to do some painting, only this time - the furniture. I had some lovely emulsion paint left over and a spare mixing pot, so here I became Miss Mixer and had a base blue and added some white. I just love the colour I made.

Then, my friend Lesley popped over for a cuppa and she said "Why don't you paint one of your girls on the top of that little stool?" You know what? That's a fab idea. It didn't take me long to decide who was going on there as I have a little supply of girls for canvases etc... So I did.
I'm soooooo delighted with the outcome. It completely enhances our lovely little garden. The colour blue reminds me of the sea and for some reason I feel all Mamma Mia'ish when I look out there. They're now sealed with outdoor varnish so they're ready to spend the summer out there. Love them.
