Summer cups

My small handle-less cups have dropped their T Brown coats and transformed themselves with green glazes for Summer drinks and wines. I'm enjoying the carving and need to explore other tools.

Hyacinth! You commented about a hanging garden in your city window and I must direct you to the Window Farms site. Please get going on some plant hangers for your plastic bottles. Don't be shy of hemp and beads! Try thin, deep red or deep pink hemp, turquoise. Add a little hand-bent copper wire and some tiny pulleys. This is going to look fantastic in your pre-war 6 foot narrow windows.

Do you happen to have any of those little garden lights that look like dragonflies? A small string of Pmas lights in an empty glass jar hanging somewhere in the midst of this would be good, some holes poked into the lid and the slightest wiff of pickle juice.

Irene Feesey

The April issue of The World of Interiors has a wonderful article by Ruth Guilding on Irene Feesey. Antony Crolla's photographs show the artist's needlepoint, embroidery, paper mache bowls and lovely handmade cards. I love that songbird cushion behind her in the photo. I think it would make a great ipad cover.
