Glass jars and garden pots

Do you remember the glass jar I bought at a Vintage Fair a couple of weeks ago? Well, a very kind lady who read it, and remembered me from a workshop we'd both been on two years ago, contacted me to say that she had one exactly like it, and was going to let me have it so I had a matching pair. She left it for me at Art Van Go, so I went over there today to pick it up. There were not one, but two really pretty glass jars that looked very like mine. Here's my original ... and although, it's not exactly it's double - it's a baby sister for my one ....
and her mate with legs ...

Thank you so much Susan, they look gorgeous together. Aren't people lovely?
Talking of AVG, check out my post on the Art Van Go Blog for details of the Open Studios Exhibition, and exciting catalogue news!

On my way home, as it was such a lovely day, I stopped off at the local garden centre and bought some pansies and cyclamen for the pots outside my studio, which I planted up this afternoon in the sunshine. Nice to get outside after being cooped up indoors with a grotty cold.
Right, that's it. Off to watch "Strictly" now.

  1. Hi Gill it's nice to know you are feeling better. How lucky are you to be given some matching jars, what a nice lady.
    The gardening looks very nice.
    Have you made any books yet?
