Yellowness of a Special Day

To be a child is to know the gift of living
To have a child is to know the gift of life

This weekend we had a surprise babyshower for a friend and it was just so lovely to:

... be part of the special surprise day ....
... planning my ideas for the gift ...
... make lovely handmade things for the baby ....
... enjoy the yellowness of it all ....

Yellow just brightens the day .... especially the grey ones that we have at the moment.


March almost gone….

"Time is free, but it's priceless.
You can't own it, but you can use it.
You can't keep it, but you can spend it.
Once you've lost it, you can never get it back."

~Harvey Mackay~

… enjoyed a lot of time outdoors …

… had some lovely time indoors …

…. and I had a bit of time to be creative …

Goodbye until next week!

"Spring makes its own statement,
so loud and clear
that the gardener seems to be
only one of the instruments,
not the composer."
Geoffrey B. Charlesworth

SpRiNg is definitely on it’s way …. Well after winter it is spring! ….
We had some really l-o-v-e-l-y spring days the last couple of days ..... blue skies ..... the fresh spring smell ..... bulbs coming out ...... and not-too-cold-days too.

Love, love, love the snowdrops with their green hearts so tiny and perfect.

Can’t wait to get down to the plant centre to buy some seeds to sow with the kids this week. Really want to bring some colour to our garden.

On the crafty side, did not manage to do any crafty things last week, but will have to make up for it this week.

Hope you had a lovely spoiled Mothers’ Day too.

Have a lovely week! x-x

At last .....

Do what you can where you are with what you've got.
~ Theodore Roosevelt

AT LAST we had some lovely sunny days this week and although still windy and chilly, it makes the days feel so much better :-).

Can’t believe how quickly the time has gone and that we are in March already. Have got so many ideas and goals for this year and really hope that I can achieve all.

Working hard to complete goals that I set myself for this year. I’ve completed a few little projects, made a few gifts, but still haven’t finished a cushion cover that I so desperately want to finish .... looooong overdue. Have finally got the backing for it .... that took about 3 months .... but now it's just to get the time to go and sit to begin and finish it without interruptions. It's now on my dining table .... to annoy everyone, so will have to finish it next week ..... fingers crossed xxx

We managed to bake some scrumptious oats biscuits last weekend and they are really SCccRUMPtious - a word my little boy use a lot these days ... for food !

Like the recipe? Here you go ...

Some of the things on my to-do-list for March:

Unfreeze freezer - little tiny people open and close doors all the time
Tidy up toy cupboard - need to pack and give away loads of baby-baby stuff now
Finishing baby blanket #3
Finish kids birthday invitations and get my ideas handy for the event
Get all the ideas together for changing our bedroom (BIG Project for April).... quilt, cushions, paintings..... etc, can't wait to start .... waiting for some lovely fabric from the US. Can't wait to show you.

There will definitely be more to the list, but would I be able to achieve it?..... lets leave it at this, I still have lots of birthdays and weekends filled, so won't be tooo hard on myself.

Definitely hope the sunshine lasts for next week as well. Have a good weekend! -x-
