The sun is shining today. 

Woo Hoo.

It has been a grey and cold couple of weeks. Very busy. But quite a nice busy.

A couple of weeks of working, sorting, clearing, crafting, and catching up with friends and relatives. Good coffee. Good Cake. Good Chat. Lots of laughs.

Just a few snippets of life in my little patch.....

Flowers. Just love them. Bringing rosy cheer into grey days.

Whimsical finds. I'm calling it the 'Alice in Wonderland' Clock.

I'm feeling the spot love today.

Flowers on my ledge.

Bread making.

Lazy Half Term mornings.

Loving stripes.

Finishing projects.

Discovering lost items.

Loving colour.

Loving smocking.

Making Baby Bear Smile.

Having outdoor fun.

These past couple of weeks have just zoomed by. I have finished off my knitted project. I'll give it a post of it's own. I've finished my scarf also. I'll do a post for that too when I have a moment. I've been enjoying making bread again. Which is NOT a good thing. Bread is my weakness.....my downfall. Warm, freshly baked bread with butter that just melts on it......well.......need I say more? I think I need to stop for a while.

A much loved trip to Ikea to get storage tubs (yeah, like that's my main reason for going), any excuse.....





Sunshine, colour, big mugs of tea, crochet, notebooks, lattes, yarn, ideas, charts, smiles, clouds, cosy, homely, blankets, organising, happy.

Words that spring to mind for these past couple of weeks.



  1. ... And what a lovely, cheerful snippets they are - thank you!

  4. Your snippets gave me a Spring like feeling, the sun has been shining today here too and perhaps Spring is not too far away xx

  5. Lovely pictures! I love that clock! I thought of Alice in Wonderland when I saw it too! Fresh baked bread.....it is my weakness as well. Gorgeous flowers and fabulous projects!

  6. I'm glad it's been the good kind of busy. I've lost that January energy, I need to re-capture it somehow. Love the yellow mug and the yellow crochet, gorgeous and sunshiny. CJ xx
