Friday Favourite ~ Courtney gets Creative at the Garden Centre

We like to think we are a creative bunch at the Cottage Garden Centre. We sure do have some fun and lots of laughs. The other day when I arrived, coffee shop owner John said to me, "Courtney (his lovely wife) has been getting all House and Garden in the coffee shop." House and Garden  is John's term for anything that involves decorating ha.
We all agreed that it looked fantastic. Courtney had just gathered up some of the fun Children's chairs I have for sale and grouped them on the wall. With the addition of some pretty petunias they just added such a spark of colour to the lovely greens of the cafe. 
                           Hope you have a lovely Friday. I am off to both The Garden Centre and the WAC to restock before the weekend.


  1. The chairs look great on the walls!! Very creative indeed. I must come for a visit soon.x

  2. No matter what you call it looks brilliant. Should be on the front cover of the H@G mag though. Brilliant display.

  3. Hi Katherine - the chair arrangement looks fab. Courtney should get "all House and Garden" more often!

    Also I must tell you that I witnessed the sale of the little tiered bookcase from the Garden Centre after I saw you there on Sunday. The lady who bought it was just so delighted with the piece. She took one look at it and declared - "that has to come home with me! Stick a SOLD sign on it now." Then she skipped all the way back to her car with a smile as wide as the Cheshire cat! - It was a delightful sight. You have done it again!
    have a great weekend - Karen

  4. "house and garden" - that's funny. It looks fabulous. Have a great weekend!

  5. how lovely... it looks so pretty and fresh.. very 'house and garden' hehehe

    Have a fab Friday Katherine.. ciao xxxx Julie

  6. That's cute. I love the chairs with the flowers no matter what it's called!

  7. I absolutely LOVE the chair display. What a great idea for outdoor pot plants. Have a lovely weekend my dear. xx

  8. That chair display looks fab makes you smile ;-)) dee x

  9. What a great idea, they look lovely!

  10. Love that expression and will be using it. I get all "house and garden" everyday. It's a great display too. xx

  11. What an effective display - love the colours of the chairs.
    I was in at the WAC y/day for a potter. Resisted the Mars chocolate cake, but only just.

  12. Exploring I noticed your site bookmarked as:
    Blogger: the old boathouse. Now I am assuming
    you book marked it yourself and wanted to ask if social book-marking gets
    you a good deal of visitors? I've been looking at doing some book-marking for a few of my sites but wasn't sure if it would yield
    any positive results. Thank you.

  13. Hello! I hope you do not mind but I decided to post your site: to my internet directory website.
    I used, "Blogger: the old boathouse" as your site headline.
    I hope this is okay with you. However, if you'd like me to change the title or perhaps remove it entirely, email me at Thanks for your time.

    Maybe you could space it out better?
