important stuff to do with stickers and pompoms..... it's not quite here yet, but I love's almost time to bring out those spring blossom twigs.....
....stick them in a jug and precariously dangle little chicks and eggs from them.....

it's time to dig out the Charlie Brown's Easter Dvd and those £shop pompom bunnies again...

it's time to sneak off.... pretending to attend to very important business, when really you are making little bunnies 
and easter cards :)

cards  made from washi tapes and paperchase stickers

I just love spring colours... cute chicks... and little bunnies

I think this sun gone to my head???

have a wonderful week

...I won a give away............. a signed copy of the very lovely 'Homespun Style' by Selina Lake

now I know there is such a  buzz about this book already and I'm thinking most of you will have read the other blog reviews or already have the book, but I couldn't resist doing my own little post about this very  beautiful book :)

 here are some of my favourite pics lovely and it gives off a vibe that's not stuffy or designer or hard to achieve..just really lovely homely inspiration for the crafty and not so crafty among us... it's had me heading for the paint store with my little swatches of blue (again!)  reaching for my yarn bag to start another crochet project and trawling ebay for a little wire cotton reel rack...

Selina is holding a book signing and homespun market in London on the 13th April 
see   here    for details ... looks fab :)

have a lovely weekend ...bring on the spring x

 a sunny Monday morning and I am smiling because.....
* I had a very lovely mothers day...noodling around the local vintage craft market and meeting the very lovely

* being spoilt with cute handmade cards and gifts and a lovely afternoon tea :)

* sneaking off to do a spot of sewing yesterday, patching all those patterns together made me smile so much my cheeks hurt....

 * knowing I am having a little road trip with my lovely sis (who lives in France so don't get to see very often)..

that cute little crochet bunting is sasse and belle :)

* loving that when I put the boys jeans in the wash this morning...checking the pockets I found a little caterpillar (still alive!) and a pair of plastic fangs...the mind boggles :)

* finding flock bunnies (always something to smile about )

hope you are smiling tell :)
