Home bags Happy Monday

What’s making me happy this Monday is not only having fresh flowers in my dining room……

….but also in my living room! Double the delight! ๐Ÿ™‚

A lovely new knitting and crochet book to oooh and aaah over! ๐Ÿ™‚

Not only a crochet work in progress to keep me busy…….

…but a knitting one too. ๐Ÿ™‚

What’s really making me happy this Monday though are the signs of Spring in my garden.

Happy little crocuses appearing all over.

The primula with the signs of the morning rain although something else that’s really making me happy now is that the sun is now out! ๐Ÿ™‚

Here’s hoping you can find something to make you happy this Monday too !!! ๐Ÿ™‚

I have tulips on my kitchen windowsill which is cheering up a very grey day here. That new book looks fun.

Hi Vivienne, Love all your pictures. The flowers inside and out are beautiful. I can’t wait to have outside flowers and the lovely smell of the earth! Your new book looks like so much fun to look thru and decide what to make. I have never seen that one. Two projects going, one so delicate and the other so Spring!! Love them. My Monday will be great, I have my daughter visiting and my husband off for Presidents Day in the US. Take care and loved visiting you, xoRobinโค

It would make me happy to have a dining table cleared of books and papers sufficiently to put fresh flowers on it!! My fresh flowers are in the kitchen window sill! Love all your garden pics. Isn’t Spring wonderful?

Yes, but know what it can do is a far cry from knowing how to do it! Love the paisley on the tablecloth ๐Ÿ˜‰

Lovely, lovely pictures, Viv! And the book looks divine, I have the earlier one (100 flowers to knit&crochet) and I adore it. You’ll be enjoying and getting a lot of inspiration from that book I am sure!

Happy new week!
