Spring Photos!

We've been talking about it quite a lot around here lately, and I think an improvement in the weather is becoming a slight fixation of mine - I need to top up on my sunshine! Not that the March weather has been co-operating with this plan. However, the early flowers are starting to bloom, and the Daffodils are working very hard at cheering the place up!

Happy Accidents

Hiding under a rock... that's where I've been the past few weeks. 
I've sort of been languishing between stages 3 and 4 of 'The Process' for what feels like forever, but in reality has only been a couple of weeks... so in an attempt to banish the dismals, I have created this: 

It was supposed to be a lovely mint green, but my printer has run out of Blue (again) and it came out in a lovely sunny yellow. So I'm taking it as a sign, from my printer with love, to cheer up for goodness sake!

February Photos - Finale!

Here is the final installment of my February photos - a little later than scheduled, due to a brief but stressful hospital stay for the small girl (she's fine now!)
I know life is always full of lumps and bumps, but I think I'm ready for some plain sailing, for awhile at least!

1. Unicorn! I've been taking product shots for these guys, and FINALLY listing them in my shop Here! Also, the fabric in the background is of my own design: Spoonflower were doing free samples, so I got one for a laugh. Now I want to make more! 

2. I won a competition! This is the lovely painting by the very clever Lily Reilly of  Petal to Petal which I was lucky enough to win in a facebook competition - I've been a fan of her work for awhile now, so I was delighted to have a piece to hang on my walls - now to find the perfect spot! 

3, 4, & 5 : All these are taken on a day trip we took to Cobh with my Mum before she flew back to NZ. Although it wasn't a perfectly lovely day weather wise, it was still lovely to be by the seaside, and it didn't rain for most of the day! Result! 
Especially considering we'd just had this the day before:  

(I figured out how to make GIFs. There is no stopping me now!)
