a little posy

It's raining cats and dogs here still
I don't mind though
it's cosy inside

I placed a posy of snowdrops on my bedside table
I've enjoyed them so much
more than I thought anyone could
for some reason it feels quite indulgent
a special treat
I think this is going to be my new 'thing'
a little something that makes me happy
If you don't do it already ..... try it
you may be surprised too
think of all that extra joy going out into the universe
it can only be good .....

BTW ..... you see that gorgeous mug? .....
my beautiful bestie gave it too me at Christmas
I adore it
and her of course

I seem to have lost my blogging voice
where has it gone I wonder?
I hope I find it soon
I feel like I have been gagged

I hope to be back later this week
(voice dependent)
with a giveaway for you

till then
stay cosy
BIG love

  1. What a lovely idea to bring the snowdrops indoors so that you can enjoy them. I am enjoying having daffodils in our downstairs rooms at the moment, their scent is exquisite.
    Love the Emma Bridgewater cup, I have a small collection of her things, 3 teapots (2 bought for wedding anniversaries by my husband), some dishes with the two hearts design and teatowels.I would love some of the two hearts mugs, one day I might even treat myself!! Have a lovely week Jooles X

  2. Aw come back Jooles, we miss you!

    I have little pots of snowdrops dotted about the house too ... Have been hunting out mugs with hearts on to plant them in for a Valentine's day touch. I have a very similar EB cup, it is currently home to a cyclamen!

    Enjoy your Sunday

    Love Claire xxx

  3. I sometimes feel that way too, about the blogging voice. Then it comes back. :-)

    I totally agree with you - there is something very decadent and wonderful about a posy of flowers on one's bedside table. I wish i had planted snow drops now so that I could harvest some. I like to pick sweet peas in the summer and make a tiny display in a jam jar or little vase.

  4. I also love to get a little spring inside... At the moment we have some daffodils, tulips and hyacinths inside;
    a gorgeous scent fills the room! Those snowdrops from your own garden are the best though...they are so tiny, and this way you can get a better look at their beauty...
    I guess that when you least expect it you'll find it ( your voice I mean)!
    Love from Mirjam.

  5. I love snowdrops. They are such a welcome sight at this time of year. A sign of the green ahead... hopefully, it's very grey and wet here.
    Hope to hear that voice again soon.

  6. Hi Jooles
    I agree small things can make us happy and get through the day, especially at this time of the year. Beautiful snowdrops, I love them too.
    My blogging voice is AWOL at the moment too :(

  7. It is lovely to find joy in the little things! I'm sure you'll find your voice again soon- I'm hoping for nicer weather soon because I think the grey days are so draining. Lots of hugs to you x

  8. Very pretty little snowdrops so delicate I think.Love the mug,a friend of mine collects Emmas pottery and has some lovely pieces.Hope you are back again soon.xx

  9. Snowdrops on your bedside table, perfect! :) x

  10. How nice to see your lovely snowdrops when you wake up. They are such pretty little things. Your mug is lovely - did it come all the way from Australia? I remember you saying that she moved there. I do hope you are back soon, I always look forward to visiting as you always brighten my day :0) xx

    1. Ahhh how sweet of you to remember that Julia ..... she is a very clever lady who ordered online in the UK from Australia, it is very special to me and the coffee taste soooooo good in it!
      lots of love

  11. Those are beautiful . . . and the vase is perfect as well. Probably another month until we start seeing those around here.

  12. Snap, you've got the same wallpaper as me! I love snowdrops and you only need a few in a tiny vase to look good, lucey x

  13. Gorgeous flowers, and I love your pretty crocheted pillowcase! Have a lovely week! xo Heather

  14. Lovely little posy, Jooles. Snowdrops are the most perfect little flowers, so special too as they appear in winter. I love your blog, it is always a pleasure to read and to see what you have been doing and making. Wishing you a happy inspiring week :)

  15. I'm feeling tired it happen to slow down with blogging......then I feel better....more energy, maybe because I spent more time outside outside or with my family.....But I still love to blog! I only need to slow down with it!!!
    see you soon, xxx Ale

  16. Snowdrops are the prettiest and bravest little flowers, emerging as they do in the worst of weathers.
    I always enjoy popping in here to visit your lovely blog, I am feeling the same myself at the moment though so I know how you feel!

    lot of love from Moscow

  18. What a lovely posy to brighten your day..snowdrops have such a magical air about them
    Thank you for your kind words Jooles

  19. Flowers in the bedroom always feel like a wonderful treat - I love it!

  20. Your bedside looks so pretty Jooles. I'm a great beliver in indulging in a little of what makes you happy, which is why I'm not feeling too guilty about eating half a bar of Green and Blacks seasalt cholate today. Though it might have been a better idea for me to have indulged in a posy of snowdrops as they would have made me just as happy but had less impact of my waist acreage! I hope your blog boice returns soon - maybe it's waiting on the arrival of spring?

  21. I love your bedside table. So lovely and peaceful. My bouquets of tulips make me happy.

  22. Beautiful little snowdrops and gorgeous mug ~ what a lovely friend :) And loving the Cath Kidston wallpaper Mrs!!

  23. Hello sweet Jooles! Your little vase of snowdrops is delightful and lovely! I am so glad it brings you joy! Your mug from your sweet bestie is gorgeous and your bedroom too! You will get your blog voice back soon. Sometimes I think we all need a little break. I know I have felt a bit overwhelmed lately. Loved the pretty photos too, sweetie! Have a happy rest of the week! Much love, Paula xo

  24. Hi, Jooles,
    What could be more fitting for this time of year than a little vase of snowdrops. A bit of wintertime and a reminder that Spring will soon be here.
    I love your cozy bedding with it's pinky crocheted edging and your pretty mug sitting there reminding you that you are special to someone.
    Blessings and Happy Valentine's Day!
    Carolynn xoxo

  25. You are hushed for now so brought us snowdrops instead of words ... what more could we ask for :D

  26. Snowdrops are such lovely flowers - so precious because everything else is so dull and dreary at this time of year. I always think that spring must be on its way when the snowdrops are out.
