On this very chilly Friday - it is nice to have some signs of spring around the house to cheer me up - these tulips have lasted a week, they were completely upright until my son decided to flick his scarf on them. Then they drooped a little. I stuck a pin through the top of the stem as soon as i got them (i normally do it as they droop) and it worked!!!
My daffodils are now out and bringing colour and sunshine to the living room. I bought this gorgeous blue jug after seeing this post on one of my favourite blogs. It completely cheered my soul, so i had to go out and find one :)
This is where i am sitting right now writing this post - watching This Morning with a cuppa (and biscuits) before i get on with some jobs:
One of my favourite thing about blogging is the inspiration i find from other bloggers (like the blue jug). The very lovely Mel Mel (who i have had the pleasure of meeting) commented on my rubber/eraser post and suggested that i display them.
I have put some in shadow boxes for the boys rooms:
Big boys (9):
Little boys (4):
I've added some to my printer trays:
Can you spy: The cowboy hat, red London bus, Unicorns, umbrella, strawberry, 3 legged giraffe, smiley faces, dress and ice lolly amongst others?
I am also going to put some in shadow boxes in my study. Thanks Mel!!!!
I have been testing paint in the living room. I do like this Laura Ashley wallpaper but i like a neutral wall so that i can have mix matched colour in pictures, cushions etc. I am liking the top one - it is called 'Timeless' which i love in itself!!!!!
Have a great weekend. Have you any plans? We are hopefully off to Cambridge tommorrow (as long as it doesn't snow!!)
Todays lovely things:
1) a nice cup of tea.
2) A little text that made me laugh.
3) comments from bloggers.
