Sunshine and Roses

Today is a beautiful day, the sun is shining and the birds are singing in the trees, perfect weather for pottering about the garden. Of course we all need a little rest now and again so its important to have a nice place to sit and relax. This is my favourite chair, it sits in my indoor porch most of the year but as soon as the sun comes out in the summer months I take it outside to enjoy the fresh outdoors. When we get good weather here in Ireland we try to make the most of it. I  usually sit and have a nice cup of tea, read a book or do a bit of crafting. I have a rose planted nearby and I can often smell its sweet fragrance if there is a gentle breeze in the evenings.

Hand Painted Chair

This was an old chair, it was originally pine, sorry I don’t have a before photo, I just dived right in.  I gave it a new lease of life by painting it red and adding roses on the back and arm rests, it went from boring to inviting.

Whatever you’re doing, or how busy you are, its important to take time out to stop and ‘smell the roses’. It’s the little things in life that mean so much.
