For the Love of....

Granny Squares

Ive always had a bit of an affinity with Granny Squares, my nan was always knitting us blankets when we were kids with pretty pastel, but my nans eyesight wasn't great and would never venture into darker colours such as this gorgeous teal version (my fave colour)

Although I'm also loving this super white and pastel springtime version!  Makes my wanna get mine out of the cupboard for an airing now its spring!
Happy colours

This tiny Granny Square bunting is something I have wanted to do for a while, and seems a bit more manageable than a gigantic blanket!

And of course Elise's newly acquired Granny Square cardi.  I have always been a bit dubious of such an in your face cardi, but I think I maybe a convert!  My nan is always trying to get me to take her pattern that she has for a cardigan just like this, I think I might have to give it ago!

Yummy looking Tea Room run by All the Tea & China  beautifully decorated with bunting, Bunny's and floral fabric and hearts, and of course gorgeous yummy dainty china tea cups, pots and Cream Teas


I couldn't resist this gorgeous cupcake, it was yummy too!  Almost too good to eat though!

Springs Here!

One of the times of the year, I love is Spring.  There's something about a new start, spring cleaning and getting organised that get under my skin every springtime.  For those who know me, I am NOT a tidy person, in fact ever since I was a teenager I have always been messy, I just cant help it! 

But when Spring come I get itchy to organise , tidy and have nice plants around the flat! (another one of my down falls is I cant keep houseplants alive)

Perusing through my flickr Faves I found these beauties that remind my how nice a tidy and organised house can be!
