As part of Mr Sparrow's second birthday celebrations (yes, they are still happening...and soon, I promise!), I am planning a little make-over to the front of the store. Inspired by this beautiful store (top image) in Vienna, as seen on Design*Sponge, I am planning on adding a couple of large pots, maybe a hanging basket (if I can!), and pretty white fairy lights bordering the window. I'd also like an antique wooden bench to go outside under the window, where I can display my plants for sale and also sit and enjoy the sunshine (and encourage you to do the same!)....but it is proving very difficult to find! Anyway, I am going to get to work on this mini makeover very soon, so have been scouting around for further inspiration and found these photos - from the top: Kuruminoki in Nara, Japan, via jollygoo (so cute!), Maia Arts in Cornwall, UK, via Scarlet Butterfly, heart made from fairy lights in Pia Jane Bijkerk's Paris apartment, flower fairy lights from Esprit Cabane. Stay tuned for details of the birthday celebrations in coming weeks!
