It's been too wet for car booting this weekend but it's done me a favour and I've cracked on with a few tasks I've been putting off for ages.
I discovered this vintage steel meat safe festering in the garden of our last house and held on to it for years thinking it would come in useful one day. Yesterday I finally scrubbed it down and painted it so it's now respectable-looking storage receptacle for my plant pots and gardening accessories.
Our motley assortment of cast iron garden furniture has been salvaged from skips and reclamation yards over the years. After giving them the same olive green paint treatment the garden looks a lot more inviting and less like the council tip.
Can you see the washing line? I picked up some cute yellow daisy print bark cloth at Friday night's jumble sale and hopefully they'll be enough fabric to run up some camper van curtains.
When my fab friend Margaret at Penny Dreadful Vintage blogged about jumpsuits a couple of months ago I saw this beauty on Etsy and I knew it had to be mine whatever the cost (but it was only $15 so just about within budget). When it arrived from the States I absolutely loved it but felt the sleeves made it too "costume-y" so I hacked them off and now it's perfect.
Just remind me not to take it to any festivals this summer. Much as I love an all-in-one trying a negotiate a port-a-loo with a knackered lock after a gallon of cider isn't a pretty picture.

I can't believe I've got over 600 followers, I'm sure it's after my dear friend, Christina's brilliant post here. I'm so excited and can't wait to get to know some more fabulous bloggers.
