lovely april

April is the blossom and blue sky month!

There have been a few April showers but generally it has been a lovely month.

And the garden has sprung into life.

Easter of course happened during the month and there were plenty of eggs….both chocolate and woolly!

During the Easter holidays we had lots of lovely walks on hillsides, bluebell woods and parks.

There has been time for some crafting during April as well, I finished a little green cardie for my granddaughter just in time for Easter.

And there have been some little animals too, who will be appearing in my Etsy shop on Monday 24th April at 7pm (BST), more info here and larger images here.

We have a very special first birthday coming on the 2nd May, I truly can’t believe Amelie has been here for a whole year, what a year it has been, she has brought us so much joy!

Thanks for taking the time to drop by, enjoy the last week of April! 🙂

march already

Can you believe it’s March already, this year is moving along far too quickly, it is lovely though having longer evenings and of course we are now in ‘real’ spring!

Flowers are becoming more plentiful and it’s great to enjoy them both inside and out now.

February as always provided some opportunities for yummy things to eat…with Valentine’s Day and Shrove Tuesday.

During the past month I’ve been knitting some new things for my little princess and buying some lovely new yarn to make some more. 🙂

Of course there have been some new animals too!

This is Fifi and her little dog Pepe.

Fifi is a little French bunny and she loves nothing better than taking Pepe for a walk in a Parisian park and then stopping off in Laduree for some macarons.

A little grey mouse called Mustard!

It’s lovely at this time of year to have the pretty little primula to brighten up pots and window boxes and this little bear is a celebration of those colourful plants…….meet Primmie.

And the final one this time is a little mint green bunny who has of course been named Minty!

All four of these girls will be listed in my Etsy shop on Sunday 5th March at 7pm (GMT).

Please note they are collectibles only and are not suitable for children under 14 years.

Thank you so much for dropping by, wishing you all a very happy March………it’s Spring! 🙂

new year girls

Well we’re more than half way through the first month of 2017 and pre-spring is going reasonably well I have to say!

I took the above photo just after the man on the radio said we were covered in a blanket of snow, I had to laugh as the sky was brilliantly blue and there was no snow in sight.

I have to admit it did appear later that evening but it was only a dusting and it had almost all disappeared by the next morning thankfully…..and I hope that’s the end of it!!

In the house I’m surrounding myself with bulbs and its a joy to see these bright little yellow flowers open up.

I bought another pot at the weekend as I like to keep them coming.

I have finished the first batch of girls for 2017.

This little bunny has been appropriately named January and her dress is covered in shoots and buds, a hopeful sign of spring.

With her red shimmery dress and jewel button this little girl has been named Garnet……January’s birthstone!

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner so with hearts, flowers and love birds AND a ‘chocolate’ coloured cardie……please meet Cupid!

The final girl this time is Pink who got her name not just because she is pink but because the flower of the month for January is a carnation and carnations are also known as pinks!

All these girls will be listed in my Etsy shop on Wednesday 18th January at 9pm (GMT), more information on my animals can be found here.

Thanks as always for dropping in, enjoy the rest of January and keep looking for spring! 🙂
