foxes

welcome february

February is a month I always welcome, I think you can see the beginnings of spring.

I have been filling my home with bulbs, as you know I do like to hurry spring along.

However the garden is beginning to wake up and it is lovely to see some flowers in bloom again.

As always the little snowdrops are the first to make an appearance.

And I can never resist the primula when they start to appear in the shops.

I have just finished a little group of animals……this is Hattie the hare waiting on the crocuses to bloom (which they have since this photo was taken).

The flower of the month for February is the violet and so I’ve named this little lady Violette.

With a cardie to match the daffodils this is February the fox!

And the final little one this time is Hexie and I’m sure you can guess how she got her name!

All four girls will be listed in my Etsy shop on Wednesday 8th February at 9pm (GMT).

More information about them can be found here and more images here.

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

Thanks as always for taking the time to pop by, I do appreciate it.

Enjoy February….the gateway to spring! 🙂

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!!!! 🙂

late autumn days

November started off with lovely bright blue skies.

It does seems to be disappearing just as speedily as all the other months of this year though.

There were days when the garden looked like it was the middle of summer.

There have been a few frosts though and as a result most flowers have definitely finished for this year….however there are, unbelievably, still some roses.

I’m still knitting for the little person in my life, frosty days required little mittens……

……another little hat!

And some recent happy mail brought yarn for a mini Christmas jumper which is a queue behind a cardie to match the above hat and a Christmas pudding hat!!

Marzipan is sweet toothed, sugar loving Christmas mouse.
