Granny love

I can hardly believe how long its been since I blogged.I have been using Facebook rather a lot and its immediacy is useful for communicating but lacks the creativity that a blog provides. I am always time poor and do not manage my time properly and do not treat myself particularly well...this has to change....
My beautiful granddaughter is a source of great joy and has totally changed my life .....here she is....

Oh my word. How can it be nearly December?.I  have not posted on my blog since May which is truly a shame and I am going to put that right by sharing a few musings. The best news of the year has been the arrival of our gorgeous granddaughter Freya born on 16th October. Already six weeks old she has brought a lot of joy to my small family of doting adults and here she is...

Dust catchers......

It has finally happened...I have turned into my grandmother...I have a sudden longing for ornaments.....strangely kitsch ornaments of the animal kind.Its funny but when you start looking, they seem to be everywhere.My Mum calls them dust catchers but I think they are quite engaging...Here are a few of my booty/charity shop discoveries.All costing between 10p and £1...so not exactly breaking the bank but giving me a great deal of pleasure.....and very addictive
Simply  love these little kittens
A sweet little vase
           Sweet little dogs and little bambi (that's a whole other addiction)
                             Love the little mouse with the outsize ears
                              Another cat that's got out of the basket....
      My dresser full of pretty china and dustcatchers...there really is no accounting for taste. .

Happy Easter




Well it may not be Spring weather at the moment but Easter is still my favourite time of year.It is bitterly cold here in N,Yorks but  at least it's dry and we have seen glimpses of the sun for more than three seconds.
On Easter Sunday it is my 29th wedding anniversary and on that date in 1984 it snowed after the wedding photos had been taken and didn't stop until lunchtime the next day, so this type of weather is obviously cyclical and not as freaky as everyone seems to think.Anyway whatever the weather I hope Easter finds you  with those you love and brings you happiness, relaxation and maybe a little chocolate.

   This is my favourite teaset of the moment.Definitely the perfect anniversary present..........
