Happy days

Last weekend was a great one. We didn't win the Eurovisions, but we did indeed win the Ice-hockey championships - our last victory was 16 years ago so it was just about the time. And I have many other fellow hockey-fans to agree, that this was just the best. B-E-S-T.



The weekend was great craft-wise too, I made many (many-many-many) little brooches, here they are, and bigger pictures can be seen here. I have still many ideas for yet more pins, I'm just about hooked on making these... Which one is your favorite?

Have a wonderful, sunny and happy week!

Yours,
Mia

I hope you have enjoyed your celebrations Mia, 6-1 what a result. Your new brooches are just the sweetest, my favourites are the little trio in the middle and the blue/green one holding his heart baloon. You are very clever, they look so cool on your bags too. Have a crafty week,

It was a dear come true, Jane, we were just ecstatic (and actually still are!)...Huh. Thank you for the pin love, I am loving them too *blush*

Happiest week!

Hello Mia! Vow - that 6-1 was soooo good!!! I just heard from one pilot who was bringing Finnish turists here, how they flight during the game and finally he announced the result 6-1 and all went grazy!
Difficult to choose one of those beauties - today my favorite is foxy or the sweet bird with heart!
I enjoy always so much your happy sweeties!
Love Teje

I like the ladybird pin x I have to say that we (my hubby and I) thought the Finland entry should have won with the opening song at the Eurovision. It was a great song and reminded me a little of coldplay. I did not think much of our entry - Blue.

Have a fab week!

Hi Teje,

We have had hockey-crazy days! And I love it! Thank you so much for your nice comment on my pins, made me smile!

Thank you so much, Shanti! Your comment made me blush :) and my weekend was a GREAT one, really!

Have a wonderfully happy week!

Mia said...

Hi Leah,

I liked our song too (it was a good one for long time! We have had so many BAD ones). Blue didn't do it for me, either, they're not bad but a bit boring ;) maybe?

Happy and sunny week!

Yours,
Mia

Congrats on the 6-1 win, and I can't express how adorable that collection of brooches are, so very lovely, especially with their photos all grouped together. Bethx

Mia said...

Thank you Beth, I am (almost) feeling like I did something to gain that win ;) we lived pretty intensive hockey-filled two weeks (and loved it)!

I'm happy you liked my brooches!

Happiest weekend!

Yours,
Mia

Hi Mia,

Hooray for Finland, what a win 6-1.

All of the brooches are adorable, but my favorites are the lady bug and the red/white birdie with balloon. Have a great weekend soon.

Happiest weekend to you too!
