Hi all!!! Happy Easter!!!! I hope it's going well for you!!!. We had a big Easter lunch here at the Beach House yesterday and this was the artwork I came up with to go on the back deck.
Remember the funny tussle Mr Beach House and I had, over the ladder I nicked from his factory here. Well now he has taken to bringing homeless vintage ladders home for my enjoyment. Such a good man really.......
This one is ex local yacht club and Mr Beach House 'thought I might like it'. 'Like it' you darling man..... Paint splattered, aged wood, falling apart.....I love it. It was braced with a revolting old bit of nylon rope though, which had to go. We had another tussle over that one. Can you imagine 6 kiddos running around here on Easter Sunday, baskets in hand, chasing down the eggs and the whole thing crashing to the ground, as they jostled around the garden???? Well that's what my over caring husband was worried about.
'No problem' I said......I'm not going to let a potential trip to the hospital with a child, cut and bruised by a falling ladder, ruin my artistic creativity. 'Let's cut off the rope and brace it with driftwood' I retorted to his ever so practical solution to any problem we ever have. I don't know about you, but I'm in the 'as long as it looks good' camp.... And so it was. The ladder was braced with driftwood and strung with vintage bottles and white flowers. I am happy to report all six children survived unscathed, if a little chocolaty around the chops. I'd play you the video of the hunt, but my voice over lay, is just too appalling and I'd rather keep the illusion going if you don't mind.
Now everyone could relax and relax we did!!!!
Sitting around a table, eating good food with people I really like, kiddos happily playing in the background, is about the best thing in life for me.
We had a great day out on the deck.
A better look at my Easter table will be up next
