Julia Quinn/Cheeky Lemur: shedworker

Julia Quinn runs her jewellery-making business Cheeky Lemur in a frankly fantastic garden office in France having relocated from England earlier in the year. It was designed and built by her husband Marcus and as the top photo shows, it's really rather special. Both Julia and Marcus have nicely written blogs which are well worth reading - Marcus details the build of the shed office in some detail and plenty of photos on his. Here's a snippet from Julia's:
As I'm working in my workshop, I can enjoy the view of my miniature garden set out in front of me, I can almost smell the swaying sunflowers in the garden next door which is a sight to behold. OK, they are around the corner, but I can imagine them. There were a couple of them in a vase in my studio until yesterday, when a child of mine...who will remain nameless, knocked the vase off the top of the desk and emptied a couple of pints of water into the paper slot in the back of the new printer. Still waiting for the thing to dry out before I dare switch it on to suss out the damage.
