There have been a number of times recently when I’ve spotted something rather nice in a friend’s garden and have asked where they bought it. I expected some high-end,high-price retailer,only to be told it came from Argos. So when Argos asked me if I would like to review one of their garden umbrellas I was happy to oblige. And I really like it – it’s a classic design,with a winch handle that operates smoothly and easily,and a 3m diameter that generously covers the area of the garden table. The fabric looks and feels like canvas but is actually polyester which is lighter and will weather better. The central pole and the struts are metal printed with a wood design which I was initially a bit sniffy about until I realised that no teak forest had been plundered in the making of this umbrella. So if you are after a garden umbrella to shade you from the sun (or shelter you from the rain) – bear in mind that you can get garden furniture at Argos.
And did you realise that you can buy sheds from them too ? I’ve recently helped the local community garden source a Keter shed for the site (very generously donated by Keter) and discovered that they are also available from Argos. Now I have to be honest and say that I was very resistant to the idea of a plastic shed – and it would not look right in my garden – but for an allotment or community garden or tucked away behind a fence it is a maintenance free,well-designed shed. So,you can shop for sheds at Argos too.

So, everything is off to the chopping block2008-05-01 09:27:21 by FionasMum
Well, slowly anyways. I started putting my stuff on CL for sale. Started with the garden stuff (including the dog house) and hanging planter baskets. Got some small statuary type things, and a plastic table/patio chair set.
Listed my bedroom furniture, entertainment center and coffee/end tables. Once I get rid of the big things, I will start going through boxes and putting my books on e-bay.
It feels strange but somewhat calming to know I am going to be free of clutter.
