IF YOU LIVE ANOTHER DAY IN THIS HAPPY LITTLE HOUSE....
Thank you for all the lovely comments last week, I know we're a supportive bunch but sometimes it really hits you what a great community we have online! As you may know, I'm a great one for reading my blog stats page and it shows which blogs have read yours. There was one address that at first I thought was spam but it carried on for a while so I had a look and found that it is the blog of a lady from Turkey! It tickles me that I have a follower there so a special mention and wave to pelinpembesi-buket.blogspot
Talking of lovely folk, I've had two lots of happy mail recently. Shaz sent me some cards to colour and as it happened, I needed a New Home card for my niece.
I got my Arteza pens out - I like them as they have a brush tip - they're things I use fairly regularly.
And then I dug out some paper and bits - et voila. Not exactly the most complicated card but I enjoyed doing it and hopefully my niece will like it. I'll enjoy colouring in the other houses another time.
Then Elizabeth sent me these!
Lovely happy fabrics, perfect for making stuff to sell for the RNLI - thank you so much, you wonderful gal, it's much appreciated xxx The card and postcard made me happy too, they're on the shelves in the JanCave at the moment!
Short and sweet this week - I may be late in returning comments as Son No 1 has come to stay and we're off out. I shall leave you with some pics we took in the garden:
I know it's been a Painted Lady year as swarms of them migrated here but it still gladdens my heart to see them. That purple flower is a perennial wallflower, it has bloomed solidly for four months! What good value and it's brilliant for pollinators too.
I like the colours in this one too - that Rudbeckia has been amazing. In fact all the plants in my garden were chosen as they're good for all sorts of pollinators and it's really paid off. Simple things but it makes me happy.
Talking of which, G and I have been married 37 years today - I don't know who deserves the gold medal more...... ;-)
Have a great week!!
