It seems that there are plenty of us that are feeling the same about today's world. It is nice to know that there are lots of kindred spirits.
I have been given lots and lots of ideas and will work on some tutorials and blogs about them.
The lovely Miche'le sent me a really easy lovely way to scent your home with a vanilla chocolate smell. Place equal parts of water and vanilla essence into the top of an oil burner and light a candle underneath. This smells lovely. Try it for a really cheap alternative.
I took a wander around our garden today and I am ashamed to say that it is much neglected. I feel really sad that it has got to this point. A health issue that I regularly battle prevents me from doing anything too active and gardening just hasn't hit the radar for me in recent months (many months).
So today I gave myself 1 hour. Just 1 hour of tidying and I will see how I go and hopefully I can continue doing little bits at a time - Baby Steps......... The wine barrel looks much nicer now that it is weeded and has a new inhabitant.
Mr & Mrs Kiwi Fruit are hardly recognisable in this mess
And the Passionfruit looks unkept
And the passionfruit has been clipped back up to resume it's happy wandering. The first signs of spring are around the garden and I had enough spring bulbs to pick a bunch for my home. There is nothing nicer than a lovely vase of fresh flowers to beautify the home.
The vase lasted on the bench for 5 minutes......... Until it was knocked over and smashed. I wonder who could of done that?
Here they are in a new vase. There maybe a little clue to the culprit in this shot......
Do you think he looks guilty? He's lucky that we have a cat show tomorrow or he would have been grounded for his efforts. I think his sprinkle of cheese on tonight's dinner is in serious jeopardy.
I am going to spend the remainder of this afternoon in my studio playing with these fabrics for a new quilt design.
And with this a table runner in the making
And some pretties requested by a magazine who asked for more of my "pretty shabby things" - I think that sums my style up to a "T" don't you think??
I hope that you are having a wonderful weekend and have a little time to appreciate the beauty around you and be thankful for some of the small pleasures of life.
