Mother's Day...at the Cottage Garden Nursery.

What a glorious day for Mother's Day here in Brisbane. It is sunny with a slight, cool breeze and perfect blue sky. I was over at the nursery early this morning, just before the breakfast customers started arriving,  restocking after a hectic pre mother's day rush yesterday.  Gillian's Garden Cafe is absolutely booked out and Catherine in the florist is bursting with  stunning bunches and arrangements and it was lovely to be in the nursery before all the busyness of the day begins. It felt a bit like Christmas morning before the children wake.
There are lots of new furniture arrivals to show you.

I couldn't resist this sweet meat safe cupboard. Such fabulous colours and finish. Beside it is a kitchen table with pale green legs and creamy rails...I forgot to take a picture of it on its own.

I had two of these large clam shells, but one sold as soon as it arrived and this is the last one. It is a great size for a fruit bowl.
Charming child size deck chairs. I love the old canvas and the shabby green paint.

Stunning pedestal base and one of two ornate pots.

Four folding style vintage chairs, sold separately. They have a strip of canvas on the centre of each back and a lovely warm brown finish with luscious wear. When I got home from the nursery I couldn't wait to sit down with a coffee and look at the new House and Garden mag that Chauncy had given me as part of my Mother's Day present and what should I see on the cover ? A pair of very similar chairs....funny  how that happens. I don't think the ones in the mag are as nice as these...but I could be biased..he he.

Stylish cane table, perfect for indoors or out.
Classic marble topped washstand with tiled back. These are so romantic I feel. It was hard to photograph in the morning sun that was streaming into the nursery.

Every Mum's essential, a sturdy rocking chair. This one has nice delicate turnings.

Silky oak writing bureau.
The colours on this simple stool are just a perfect sunshiny combination.

Valet stand, these are making a big come back as people remember just how handy they are.
This one may look like a simple little cane side table but actually it is a sewing basket. I will explain...The top has a hinge and lifts up. Below would have had fabric that was stitched to the inside of the seagrass cane supports  creating a fabric basket for all ones sewing, embroidering or knitting to hide away neatly. 
I hope everyone enjoys the day.  


  1. Those kiddy deck chairs are adorable, though I doubt I'd fit in them. There's something so nice about kiddy size chairs.
    Happy Mother's Day to you x

  2. Hope you have a lovely mothers day !!

  3. Some lovely bits and pieces :) I hope you have a relaxing Mother's day.

    site branding. Would you think this is a good idea or bad
    idea? Any kind of assistance would be greatly appreciated.
