family

so that was march!

So another month has passed and I have to say I’m always sorry to say goodbye to March, I love spring and if I could pause the year I would do so now.

The garden is springing into life and I love it!

We have enjoyed some lovely walks in our local park too.

There has been lots of knitting during the month and we’ve celebrated a birthday and Mothers Day.

We had a little trip to lovely Edinburgh during the month as well.

And when there I got to visit the Edinburgh Yarn Festival, wow that was good, all that gorgeous yarn and talented designers and I may have made a few purchases to feed my yarn addiction!

So March you have been so very lovely and I am sorry you’re over.

Just before I go I’d like to share four more little animals with you that I will be listing in my Etsy shop on Sunday 2nd April at 7.30pm, more images can be found here and more info here.

Thanks as always for dropping by…..happy April!! 🙂

hello 2017

Happy New Year everyone!!

I actually can’t believe how quickly 2016 flew by!

The above image is a collection of all my monthly collages on Instagram, as I said over on IG it was a year of ‘B’s”….blooms, bunnies, bears and a baby.

There were quite a few animals during 2016……61 in total all living in various places across the globe. A big thank you to everyone who gave one a home.

Of course without a doubt the highlight of 2016 was the birth of our granddaughter Amelie, words can’t express the joy she has brought to our lives.

And so on to 2017….I do love a bright shiny new year, I hope its a good one for us all.

I just love the words on the front of my new diary!

So with my best wishes for 2017, I’ll leave you with this hopeful image of little tete-a-tete daffodils on my dresser……….it’s pre-spring now you know!!!! 🙂

may so far

My goodness May has been a whirlwind around these parts!

Due to the early arrival of our gorgeous little granddaughter Amelie Annie.

She decided she wasn’t waiting until her due date and arrived on the 2nd, 16 days before we were expecting her!

She was a very healthy 7lbs and perfect in every way.

image

To say that we are completely besotted with her would be an understatement, she has brought so much joy to our lives!

image

My garden has continued to bloom during the month despite me not having that much time for it but that’s the thing about May it just gets on with things without much help!

I also managed to get to the woods to see and smell the bluebells!

image

And the wild garlic….which perhaps doesn’t smell as sweet as the bluebells but is still pretty.

image

And of course the wonderful cow parsley which couldn’t be missed either.

image

There seems to be such an abundance of it this year.

And it has been the inspiration for my one and only May bunny to date!

Meet Parsley!

Life has been busy and I have missed making my bunnies so I really need get back to them again and of course I have to make ‘Amelie the Bunny’ for a special little girl too!

So just one more week left of May to enjoy, I do love the month of May, it has always been my favourite month of the year…..even more so now as it’s the birth month of my little princess. 💗
