……An Overdose of Lime……



I keep thinking I may have overdone it on the lime. Every time I catch sight of my transformed garden set I have a mini crisis about just how bright it is. I would prefer it to be a bit more weather beaten and by next spring, after a winter outside, it may have toned down a bit. Not bad for £12 and a tin of paint.

Louise! I love the tags on this post! Hahaha!

Well, it sure is bright, but that's no bad thing. I think it looks very jolly, that lime really sings in the open air!

Yeah I like it! I can totally see it in a habitat kinda way with chocolate browns and pink cushions and crockery, and cocktail umbrellas!

Thanks for all your positive comments. The good thing about it's dazzling colour is that even on one of our greygrey days it makes me still feel sunny. I can't wait to serve mojitos on it. You are all invited, bring your shades
