Springtime Treasures!

My Springtime faves!

As the girls I worked with in Scotland in the Nursing home would say its"Col outside".. Aberdonian slang! Brrr its so great because one day here its 68 or 70 and then 5 days later its 46. So cold here is always so welcomed because it just never seems to stay very long! So in this cold I think of springtime and the little ducks and chicks I raised on my little 10 acre farm. And. there. is. Nothing like it!

Here are some great finds I hope you Enjoy them like I have! And I will have to be careful to buy something!

Happy New Year Janet!!
Thank you so much for commenting on my blog. I don't usually feel quite so bleak but it was one of those things.
I have a list of things I would like to do one day and one of them is to try lampwork. It looks like so much fun and very creative.
I am still making - jewellery, embroidery, altered stuff, but I decided that my mind needed feeding as well so I have started a philosophy course which I am enjoying - I am thinking so hard it hurts!! But I have plenty of creative ideas as well so will keep going.
I will try to keep in touch more regularly. For my silence - please forgive me. And have a great 2011.



Thanks for following me here too! Sue xoxoxz
