Hello to you all, can you believe it is December already, where has 2014 gone? It does mean we have Christmas to look forward to though. I hope you’re all modelling some delightfully silly Christmas jumpers, I wonder if they do them in Posh Shed size? Who’s off to a fancy fun Christmas party? Ladies get your posh frocks out and gents, I’m sure there’s a singing flashing tie hiding in the back of your wardrobe somewhere. Unfortunately they don’t do frocks for sheds but don’t worry, I’m not left out because I am modelling some fancy pants guttering which keeps me looking fresh and feeling damp free. I think you’ll all agree our frosty winter is quite enough coldness to deal with without being damp as well!
Although having said that, my owner is not letting the cold keep her out of the garden, she came and kept me company the other day whilst sitting and painting a beautiful robin with its radiant red belly. Mr Robin looked like he was having a great time hopping in and out of his Posh Bird Box, he seemed very fond of his home. I hope my owner comes to visit me again soon, secretly hoping she might even bring me a mince pie. If she does my friend Mr Log Store will be so jealous, maybe he’ll get one too. He certainly deserves one, modest as he is, he does an excellent job keeping the logs neat and dry and with this cold weather, a fully stocked log store for those cosy fires is
certainly needed. Maybe Santa will bring you one, only if you’ve been good of course.
Well I hope you all enjoy the festive season, don’t go eating too many mince pies now and I will look forward to speaking to you in the New Year.

Autumn has arrived with a vengeance this week. Wet and Windy but I’m lovely and dry inside.
Due to a lovely dry, warm September we are still busy building and delivering sheds. One of my fellow Posh Sheds has even gone to Switzerland. I’m certainly going to be warmer than him this winter but I’m sure he will look stunning against the snowy background and will do a great job of protecting everything from the snow and the cold.
Following our summer of shows some of my fellow Posh Sheds are also looking for new homes and we also have some that have put themselves forward for ‘Shed of the Month’.
There is still plenty to do to prepare for autumn and if nothing else I’m sure the rake and broom will be regularly in and out to clear up all those wonderful coloured autumn leaves. Which reminds me, don’t forget to clear away any build-up of leaves/debris from around my sides to keep me in tip top condition and looking my best. I do have standards to keep.
By the way if you are busy chopping up logs ready for those autumn/winter fires and wondering where can I put them to keep them dry, neat and tidy, don’t forget my fellow Posh Shed friend the Log Store.
Will keep in touch

Well hello again, what a whirlwind of a summer it has been; building and delivering lots of sheds, attending shows and meeting lots of lovely people. We even had the pleasure of seeing one of our sheds on TV this summer alongside the wonderful Love Your Garden team! The finished garden looked fantastic and the purple half shed certainly stood out, we were pleased to be involved with a wonderful project for an inspirational lady.
My fellow Posh sheds will be having one last outing at Burghley Horse Trials this September too. It will be our first time attending and we’ll be taking along some other wooden friends from our big sister The Playhouse Company too. Pop along and see us if you can!
Now summer is on its way out but there’s still plenty to be done in the garden to prepare for the longer nights and colder weather. Of course I am perfect for your garden but I must admit I have some pretty close competition with these guys joining The Posh Shed gang, there’s the new Patio Store and Log Store which are very handy for storage.
Speak again soon

Hello and lets welcome some sunny weather, finally! I am getting lots of use now that the garden is the place to be, what with the long summer nights and the bar-b-que lit; my owners have been mowing grass and weeding flower beds galore!
It’s the time of year when some of my Posh friends will be making their way to the summer shows, The Ludlow has been to RHS Chelsea and The Chelsea has been to RHS Hampton, very exciting! Next it’s onto RHS flower show at Tatton Park with some new friend’s joining the clan - The Garden Store and Garden Seat. Both will look lovely next us sheds.
The Posh Shed family just keeps growing!
I have recently been very pleased to meet a new shed (which would have prevented some issues at our home); his and hers shed! Bar-b-que, lawnmower and tools in one side and cushions, blankets and books in the other! A perfect solution for keeping everyone happy!
Will write again soon

A Spring in our Step
It’s here! We’re into Spring; Spring Flowers, Spring Term, Spring clothes (ok well, maybe Spring clothes by May?) But you get the jist..
I’ve been having my annual spring clean, brushing out any cob webs and opening my window to breathe in the fresh air. I‘ve been housing garden furniture, cushions and the lawnmower over the winter, keeping everything dry and safe. Thank goodness the BBQ was cleaned before being put away last Autumn, but now I can’t wait for those bangers and burgers to be cooking, I can smell them already. My polycarbonate glazing is looking great, it’s so good to be able to watch everything that’s going. The grandchildren are coming over this weekend and I’m involved in their annual Easter Egg Hunt, they especially love to play with my stable door – they love closing the bottom section and peeking over the top
My friends are getting very excited at the moment, they are getting ready for the summer shows, Chelsea, Hampton Court and Tatton, word is that they is going to be a new addition to the family…so exciting, I wonder what its name will be. I can’t wait to hear their stories when they get back.

Happy New Year sheddies! I do hope everyone had a magical Christmas and a joyful New Year. Whilst looking forward to 2014; I have had time to reflect upon 2013 - what an amazing year: Starting off with the spectacular fireworks on The River Thames in London. Kimi Raikkonen winning the Australian Grand Prix, Prince George was born, so many beautiful garden designs at RHS Flower Show Tatton Park and RHS Chelsea Flower Show, oh I could on and on.
I was very envious of my fellow shed who got to show herself off at RHS Chelsea flower Show, in 2014 our makers are looking forward to exhibiting some more of my fellow sheds, maybe Hampton Court, Tatton Park and RHS Chelsea Flower show, please do come and say hello to us if you are there.
Well 2013 is over and as the saying goes 'out with the old in with new’ perhaps a new Posh Shed in your garden for 2014
