Belfast sinks and their true value?

I think maybe I should let the auction play out, hopefully not too many people are looking for things like this at this time of year.

Wish list for seed and plant swap

Posted: 17/09/2014 at 19:23

Am I too late to this? Not sure what I can swap I have that many, but know OH has firm grips on all the edibles! I have some dupes of flowers, and a wildflower seed carpet I've no use for, a couple packets of wildflower seeds I probably wont use this year.

think OH wants it for herbs and the such... typical!

Would I get much luck at a restoration yard place? I've never been to one, and I've always wanted to, I like the idea of unusual planters at the back of the garden.

This seems in pretty decent nick but quite small.

Quick question really, there's one offered on ebay locally to me, with no bids at £5, I know nobody who's bought one, but I certainly I'd like one to start off some succulents!

Does anyone have one, with photos for inspiration and more importantly what is a fair offer for me to make this person?

I think some of you may have gotten theirs for free or very little, but well, I've had no such joy!

Thanks Bekkie. I'll take a look. I saw some one etsy but they're in the states. I'll take a look in some antique shops when I get the Chance. They seem to be a specialist thing now!

Hello all!

Looking to add some indoor greenery to our house and I love the idea of terraniums, they are gorgeous in themselves, and with added plants I think they're wonderful, especially away from our naughty cat who has an obsession with leaves and will eat all of them off any plant we have, houseplant, seedling or even freshly cut... So these seem a great idea all around!

 

Problem is I'm finding it hard to find any! I've found one on ikea that's simple and functional... of course! But ideally it's ones like these

 I'd have one in the living room, and another in the OH's office.

Any suggestions for more delicate ones would be great, otherwise it's a trip to ikea after the house move I think!

interesting that it's related to tobacco considering the plant pots use!

Not sure if that link will work as it's from my instagram account? But I like to spend lots of time in bookshops. This was my favourite place to hide after a hard shift at work. It's now closed down and relocated to a modern waterstones type affair... It used to be in an old windy rickety old building hidden away. They're making more money for the charity now which is great, but I can't help but miss how quiet it used to be!
