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! 🙂

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!!!! 🙂
