Thank you SO much for all of your kind comments on my new kitchen
I was so happy to read them
I'm so glad you like it too
especially it seems, my mug shelf
I'll tell you more about that another day
if you'd like
Today I wanted to share with you some flowers
I picked from the garden this weekend
it felt quite naughty picking these beautiful treasures.
When I was little, my mum liked to leave the flowers out in the garden
she'd tell me that they'd last longer out there
and of course, she had a point
but I think I've rebelled rather
I LOVE to bring flowers inside
I appreciate them SO much
their close up beauty and their fragrance gives me endless joy
Just four .....
One Viburnun sprig
and ..... Om My .....
the anticipation waiting for this plump beauty to open is almost more than I can bear!
Can you see the Welsh poppies through the kitchen window?
aren't they P R E T T Y ?
I really love the flowers of spring
they just knock yer socks off!
Just as Mr Sweet had promised
the blinds were hung at the weekend
it was a little tensiony at times (!)
but they are now up
and looking pretty
I'm so pleased they fit ..... phew
I love the fabric so much
I ordered it from here
I'd love to buy more ..... much more .....
and this is the fabric I used in the laundry room
but more on that another day too
Luckily I had some fabric left over
(I accidentally~on~purpose ordered a bit too much. Naughty girl)
I remembered a while ago that the VERY lovely Gillian
had posted a tutorial for a peg bag
mine was falling apart
so on Sunday afternoon
while the boys were messing around with light fittings
I set to
I'm thrilled with my new peg bag
and it's a really great tutorial
thank you Gillian
Today is my lovely boys birthday!!!!
I really can't believe that
I decided to make him a really grown up cake this year
as he is no longer even a teenager
I used this tutorial
Incidentally, Minion's hair is the 'liquorice' part of the title
I tip~toed back to Instagram this weekend after a Loooong break
if you fancy a look at my posts there's a link to them on my sidebar
I'm having fun over there
I MUST NOT get obsessed
I didn't sleep well last night as I was on there too late
I have now set myself a curfew
I still love blogging best
