simple things

simple things making me smile lately :

  1. first blooms for this rose
  2. drying hydrangeas
  3. (small) raspberry harvests
  4. our next door neighbour
  5. play
  6. quince paste
  7. the end of the mending pile
  8. warmth

Hooray for the end of the mending pile! Shall I send mine over? I'm also trying to decide what to do with the new mustard baby cardi I found. It is missing two of those lady beetle buttons. Not sure whether to make do, or go through the button stash and replace them. I think they are so cute. But I could use them on something else I make I suppose?

The roses are beautiful. I've never grown roses, but I have always wanted to. I love dried hydrangeas. If they start to droop tie them upside down until they finish drying. :)

The simple things are often the most beautiful when you take the time to look closely. Your space makes me smile and feels nice and cosy. I hope you're all keeping nice and warm. xx
