If you want me, I'll be in the shed

Ha! Seriously I will probably not be in the shed, but last night I could not resist taking my lanterns (I didn't realise how many I had) up to the shed, and taking pictures. My upstairs neighbours, who overlook our garden, were out, or I might not have, as they may have thought I was mad. It was so pretty in there with all the lanterns burning, but then I had to take them out again in case of fire! I will put them back in tomorrow. We have been out all day today, so no shed work has occurred. About to watch a film on filmflex and do the border on my blanket which will then be finally finished!
I got on really well yesterday, and it is all organised and sorted, with plenty of room for more storage. I have got some silica gel to put into boxes to keep the damp out, and have big plans to make the back room into a room we can actually use.
Some good things to look at
The Hermitage
I love reading Rima Staines' blog posts. They are always so informative and poetic, full of beautiful art, photos and fascinating folklore. Today's post is all about her adventures in the hedges near her Devon home, and her quest to increase her plant knowledge.

You have a lovely collection Sarah! Your shed looks warm and cozy in these photos. I knew that using silica gel worked at keeping the damp out of boxes etc but never heard of it being used in a shed. That is an idea I will try in our shed where we keep all the gardening tools and seeds etc. Happy weekend to you!

What a great idea. Your lantern deserves to be let out and allowed to shine. The shed looks great, at least what I can see of it in the dark. You've done a lot of work there.

(that's lanternS) And I loved the kitty in the kitchen video. Wish I could get Thomas to take a shower like that. It would save me the effort of giving him a bath.

At last! The second bedroom becomes a bedroom!
