Happy Colours.

Yesterday Hugo and I went into town - when he spotted this rice paper hot air balloon I couldn't say no.
My favourite headband and rose waiting to make my bird's nest head into something passable.
The china doll I have had ever since I was a little girl - note the hair cut I gave to her at some stage. She is currently guarding the pearls my dad and stepmother gave to me on my 21st (many, many years ago).
The mobile I made for Hugo's room when he was a little baby.
I bought the boys a bag each to hang on their walls when we were on holiday. Just too cute...
Archie's big boy feet finding a bit of comfort up on the big blue couch.
AND a new project on the needles.... finally!!!
Archie and Hugo are both at home today with sore throats and great barking coughs. Secretly it is quite nice as it means we are confined to the house all day, something we all need desperately.
This morning I had a nice few minutes wandering around with the camera, once again, capturing all of the little things that fill me with warmth and joy. It really is a good thing to do. AND thank you so much for your lovely comments yesterday, they were warmth and joy-fillers too. xxooxxooxx.


  1. What a lovely, cosy and colourful post! Lovely pics!
    Hope the boys are better soon! :)

  2. What a lovely post! I know what you mean about enforced rest. When Little J is poorly we, perversely, always have a lovely cosy time...chatting and relaxing together. Having said that I do hope the boys feel better today! Lots of love, Amanda xxx

  3. Love your colourful photos and crochet. I always find I get more done when my girls are sick ... I remember finishing off the binding of two quilts that way ... now I find knitting and crochet are even better to pick up and put down as needed... hope your boys are better by now.

  4. That mobile is just genius.
