Earlier this year we decided that we needed to solve two problems

1 – The door opens straight into the front room which means that we get draughts and all the leaves blow straight in the door.  Very messy

2 – We needed to create a little extra space on the house for somewhere to go to get away if you need a quite time.

With Winter approaching and knowing that I had around 22 people for Boxing Day we decided that we had to do something and do it quickly. 

We had a small space outside the back of the house that was only really being used to store logs in and we came up with the decision that a conservatory would be just what we wanted to solve the problems. As we only have a really small garden it had to be something that was going to blend in and not stand out too much. This is what we came up with.

I now have somewhere to sit and read a book (well I will have when it is warmer) plus I can just sit quietly and watch the birds in the garden.  My mother bought me the blue chair as an early Christmas present.

I found the Webbs seed display box in Brackley Antique Cellar and think it is just the thing for display in a conservatory.  I had only just set up my own booth and made a few sales before buying this... 
We still have to complete it with a proper floor, proper electric rather than cable through a window but I am just so happy to have it done by Christmas that these are small trifles that can wait.
The other plus side is also that the house is staying warmer and when I open the front door the snow does not blow in - BONUS
