Hello Spring…

It's spring fever.  That is what the name of it is.  And when you've got it, you want - oh, you don't quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!  ~Mark Twain

Yesterday was officially the first day of spring… and it feels like it at last… the birds are singing and flying to and fro… the cat has found a spot in the sun to sleep… and I have been pottering about the house with a renewed sense of vigour… I haven’t quite found the energy for spring cleaning the house yet but I think the hutch is a good place to start…

The green vases have been in the family for generations…

It still needs a few finishing touches but I am so happy with how it’s looking…

Oops please excuse the bits on the floor…;O)  I would like to make a runner to go under the glass cloches… I have plenty of ideas just lack the time and motivation at the moment… my mojo seems to have disappeared maybe I will have to start spring cleaning sooner rather than later and try and find out where it’s hiding;oD… Oh and I found a fabulous idea on Pinterest the other day…

Now I can find all my measuring cups and spoons… and it makes a lovely display… I love walking into my kitchen and seeing them it makes me smile :o) These stocks make me smile too…

Freshly picked from the garden and Oh… they smell wonderful(Please ignore the dirty the dirty windows)

I have gained some new chooks too… our worker had some and can’t take them with him so we are looking after them until we decide what to do with them… I would love to keep them but our chook house just isn’t big enough… so for now they still live in an old shed at his place… I have been giving away eggs to friends and family… and still have some to spare…Lol Tomorrow we are having an early birthday lunch for Miss Lolly(DD2) just a couple of friends and family…

Better go do some birthday shopping… I might be in trouble if I don’t…

Happy Smiles…

Michelle

I LOVE YOUR STUFF!!! Up here on the top of the world autumn is coming, with lots of rain and wind. It is time to get out the candles and curle up under warm quilts, listening to the wind outside.
