Things in the home that make life more comfortable.
Or in my case, because I like to be a bit different, things in the garden that make life more sparkly 🙂
The husband and I have just spent a large chunk of time (and money) on dragging our garden back to life; pruning back the overgrown bushes which were taking over the flower beds, replacing the fence panels that were on the verge of collapse, removing the border edging that was so dilapidated and useless for purpose, the garden’s unwanted creatures (slugs, snails be gone) assumed we put it there for them and have taken up residence in it.
We are delighted with all we’ve achieved (with a huge chunk of muscle and inspiration coming from my mother and her other half who set the ball in motion) and it now looks like it was actually designed rather than a whole bunch of plants and trees just fell in there and organised themselves.
BUT here’s the thing; at the bottom of our garden is this lovely children’s playhouse that has given both of my children years of fun. And they no longer use it. Well they use it to store various cricket bats, hola hoops, balls, shuttlecocks and water guns in. Which seems like a terrible waste.
So I would like to make it my new ‘home comfort’ in the garden – but what? What can I convert it into?
There have already been some corking suggestions over on Instagram – from giving it over to chickens to converting it into a ‘she-shack’ (there is also a she-shack hashtag, can you believe it?!)
This post is for week 239 of The Photo Gallery. The theme is: Home Comforts.

Here’s how to join in
➤ Take a photo using the theme I’ve given as your inspiration. There are no rules and you can interpret the theme any way you like. Write a blog post or caption. You can write as many or as few words as you like. You don’t even need to use a new photo; just a photo you think represents the prompt.
➤ Add the Photo Gallery badge (and the foot of this post) to your post so other readers can find the other entries.
➤ Use the linky tool at the bottom of this post to link up your post so readers can find you. The linky stays open until Tuesday so you have plenty of time to join in.
➤ Tweet me with the hashtag #thegallery and I will retweet and share your entry (you can find me on Twitter @Tara_Cain). Or you can use the hashtag #thegallery on Instagram (I’m over there as TaraLara) and I will share and comment on your photos there.
➤ Now go visit as many of the other entries as you can. Leave a comment, discover new blogs, discover new ways of taking photos and maybe share any tips you have.
➤ The Photo Gallery isn’t about taking technically brilliant photos. You can take them on your phone, your point and shoot or your fancy pants camera. It’s about having a passion for photos, wanting to better yourself and discovering what other bloggers are doing.
➤ To ensure you don’t miss a prompt, you can subscribe to the Sticky Fingers feed to have them delivered directly to your inbox every Friday.
➤ PLEASE don’t link dump – this is not that sort of linky!
