Nice and Happy Things

Just a few of the things making me happy lately....

....baking on a cold, dark Sunday afternoon.

It's enjoyable and comforting, and at the end of it
we have our favourite lemon cake to enjoy.

....a little bit of crochet.

I made these for a new friend and hopefully she'll like them.

....lovely fresh flowers on the mantlepiece with

our Bjorn Wiinblad plate and little dish- one of my favourite
presents last Christmas.

....these old tins which I found in a junk shop.

They've been scrubbed clean and now we have some interesting
tins for storing our pens and other things.

.....finding the time to do some crafting.

It is my 'me time' when I can relax and be creative
and very much appreciated on busy, tiring days
( which is nearly everyday!)

Thanks for reading!!

Hope you're having a lovely week!!


  1. Hi Marion,

    Baking makes me happy too but I find that eating the cake is more enjoyable for me : )

    Wow, those brooches look fab!!! You are a very talented lady.

    Have a great week!

  4. I just love those tins! What a great find, plus they are really useful. Your simple pleasures look a lot like mine. I always bake when it's wet or gloomy outside. x
