The sun was out this morning and it was so lovely to see it illuminating some green shoots in the garden. And the kitchen looked like Spring had finally arrived as I had put out my Easter decorations earlier in the week.
I put out far less than usual because of Archie! He's already broken a couple of (real, painted by me!) eggs and run off with a chicken,
and as for my string of tulips we didn't even get to the hanging stage.
I hang the decorations on twigs from the garden that I painted white a long time ago. Cats have snapped bits off during the years but there are still just about enough to hold the eggs and chickens. I love the feathery fluffy chickens:
but OH hates them with a passion!
In honour of Rocky-Doodle-Doo at felters journey here are my silly cockerels!
Archie likes to play with them too.
A friend took me shopping last week and I finally found what I have been looking for (in John Lewis): a dotty jug to exactly match the kitchen - now I've found it I will ask for more as presents in different sizes because the colour is just perfect.
I've always wanted a life that involves a proper milk jug too, but that means I have to slow down enough to pour the milk into the jug and bother to put it on the table (and the table usually has felt all over it, not breakfast!)
It's been a very busy week and OH has a new job which involved a very tiring day of interviews yesterday, so tonight I have lit my candles and am having a glass of wine to celebrate making it to Friday!
Have a good weekend everybody!
This week's smiles....week 218
