52 Weeks of Happy...24/52



The happiest people don't have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything.



Joining in as ever with the lovely Jen at little birdie, here are this week's happy things:



1. New postcards from the fantastic Showler & Showler. That bear with the scarf just makes me smile! 

2. Hot cross buns made by my very talented baker friend Dean, given to us yesterday afternoon still warm from the oven and sticky with their apricot jam glaze.

3. Anything made by the children always makes me happy, especially when it hardly stands up under the weight of all the glue and tissue paper.

4. Collecting our Danish Kroner from Post Office this week. There is something so exciting about foreign currency. Our first trip abroad in almost five years is almost here!

I want to wish you all a very happy Easter. I hope you are enjoying the long weekend, wherever in the world you are. Thanks as ever for visiting and for your kind comments, they make my day. Also, hello new followers, it's so great to have you here.

Oh, I love Showler and Showler! I saw their work on the Yvestown blog a few months ago. If I were to buy anything from them, it would be the penguin with balloons and the bear. We have similar tastes! Happy Easter, I hope you enjoy the holiday with your family.

I love the third pic. Children can make the most beautiful things. As they slither of the glue then I just sneak a picture and throw it away after a month. But it is hard to do it. Keep you all the child crafts.

Lize out Holland.

love those cupcakes said...

All good. My Girlie has just had a holiday in Copenhagen and loved it. As will you, I'm sure.
