After a week of Sunshine, long dog walks and even eating lunch outside in the garden -we are now back to bleak, bleak, bleak.....
As readers of this blog will know - i am not a hot weather kind of girl, but i have to say the week of warmer weather cheered me up no end, and today, sitting looking out on my poor cottage garden being battered by strong winds and hail stones - YES HAIL STONES!!!!!
It makes me feel a little gloomy.
So i packed up a little more from our house this morning, things that i love to see each day but do not truly need to use over the next few months.
And this little cutie was popped into a tin with other cuties.....
She makes me smile
Who could resist a mouse!!!!!
They are not hand made sadly, but are made by a Danish company. I have been so in love with all the toys this company produces, i even had a page dedicated to them on my website before the Spring overhaul.
They are well made from lovely fabric which is always in the most wonderful muted colours.
Any way - the packing continues and i was over at Posy and i have been inspired by this lovely lady and her blog. Basically she is like the rest of us - cannot resist a magazine!!!!
I have (had!!) a HUGE amount stored in our top bedroom. Stephen used to hope for a leaky roof so he could say " darling - its a complete tragedy - the rain has come through the enormous hole in our roof that i failed to notice, and ALL OF YOUR MAGAZINES ARE RUINED!!!!!
Happily for me this has never happened - i have tended to keep a watchful eye on that darn roof x
But i am aware that i would need a separate lorry to transport them to our new home - so the careful cutting out of images has started.
I am AMAZED........... so few pictures have been worth keeping from so many magazines - these i will put into pretty notebooks (as shown on Posy blog). As for the rest ........ RECYCLED.
The huge amount of adverts is astonishing. A discussion on magazines has been taking place over with Niki at Nostalgia at the Stone House. Lots of folk seem unhappy with Country Living mag - however i have to admit that i was unable to cut into any of my stash of those!!!!!!
Another smile item packed is this set.....
Bright red with white hearts - i also have cups and saucers, side plates and dinner plates in this design. They look very 70's to me - does anyone have any more info on this design - i would love to know.
I will end the post today with this little chap .......
Hand knitted and so sweet - he will be over on my website later today looking for a new home xx
Have a good day - stay dry and warm - drink lots of tea and eat cake!
