The happiest people don't have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything.
A little late but here all the same - joining in with the lovely Jen at little birdie, here are a few of the moments that have made me happy from the last week.
1. You guys! Thank you all so, so much for your comments and kind words, for stopping by and saying hello. Hello new followers, it's wonderful to have you here. And you all said such nice things about our home, too. I did only show you the tidy bits, I'm afraid. I didn't think anyone would want to see a photo of an overflowing washing basket or kitchen tiles that desperately need re-grouting. I didn't realise until people commented on it but yes, I do seem, to have a lot of radios. They don't all work - a couple are just there for the beauty of them or because they hold fond memories - but I have the radio on almost constantly and love it's company. I'm sorry that I can't reply to each comment, I just don't have time, but I've answered any questions in the comment thread.
2. Angus's stubborn insistence that Bella's Hello Kitty bicycle helmet is essential gardening attire.
3. Winning this lovely giveaway from Jenny at The Custards. I knew I'd won that fabulous little 1950's inspired coin purse, but I was delighted when all these lavender-scented vintage treasures came out of the jiffy bag too...buttons, patterns, thread, ribbons. Thank you Jenny! Her blog is testament to her love of vintage, and she has a pretty spectacular courtyard garden too - do pop over and say hello. I have been rather lucky in the giveaways lately...maybe I should buy a lottery ticket while I'm on this winning streak?
4. Foxgloves in the garden. They come back every year. I think they are beautiful.
Have a happy weekend, everyone!
