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! 🙂

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!!!! 🙂

happy christmas
