Half May

May is in half already, how and when did this happen? It's been pretty busy here, and a great deal of things have been done and even more to be done still. No pretty pictures to show the new corners yet, but good things come to those who wait years, I think? Sarcasm doesn't get things done, though (tried and failed), and what really helps is to look the other way every now and then. Away from things unfinished, unpacked and undone. It's good to get back to basics then, and to do something you enjoy, can really manage and oh yes, something that once finished, makes you smile:


Hello happy keyrings! Done little by little here and there, and suddenly I realized I've ended up with a set of ten! There are needle felted little birdies, a happy cat with a new set of pearls, even a little mouse! Smiles guaranteed, I wish? They'll be moving (moving is the flavor of the month around here?) into my shop any minute now; you can hop in to take a closer look.


Raindrops are falling as I type, but it's getting green and pretty here, and we're waiting a heatwave to hit us by end of the week. I wish your days are full of blooming flowers and warming rays of sunshine...

Happy May!

Yours,
Mia

Happy half May dear Mia. What a fun set of keyrings are moving into your shop. I am sure they will be off to new homes very soon. After a warm start to May it has turned cooler today but the sun still shines. Enjoy your week and I hope all your upheavals are soon completed ;0) x

Half May and heading very quickly towards half year and mid-summer, how did ALL that happen????
I've become quite the expert in looking the other way! ;)
Love the new key rings, that could be Polly or Lily wearing their pearls . :)
Happy Tuesday my friend,

Hello dear Vivienne,

I know ;) if there's a half-decent corner in the house, I park my chair just next to it... Talk about the escapism!

I wish your days are full of sunshine until you fly off to REAL sun, you lucky girl!!

Yours,
Mia

Hi Mia, I'm back but haven't posted yet. It's in the works. Love ALL your keychains, they will fly out. I wish I needed another, they are so great. I have my owl on my keys as we speak.
I hope all gets finished soon! You are a smart lady to turn the other cheek, sometimes it's all that works. I pray for SUN and warmest to come your way NOW!!!

Happy half May, dear Mia! I love your sweet key fobs and how they all look pictured together like that!
I'm glad it is greening up and looking pretty there!
Wishing you a wonderful week.

Dear Mia, these are all so sweet! I don't know why we always start to choose favourite ... today the cat speaks to me because I just returned from the vet with Nelli. She's fine but lost one old tooth and got antibiot. We are also expecting hot weather and I was hoping that it reaches you, too! x Teje

Hello sweet Robin,

Glad to hear you're back, and I wish you had lovely visit? Thank you for the sun-wishes, it should start here any minute now... :)

Happy May!

Yours,
Mia

Hello lovely Helen,

Half May already, oh my?! Sun hasn't yet come out here, but by the end of the week we should have almost hot here... Fingers crossed!

Wishing you a creative May-week!

Yours,
Mia

Hello dear Sarah,

Thank you! I love mushrooms (especially red-white), but somehow I feel they're more autumn-y than springly thing? That said they still keep popping into my work all year round :)

Happy, sunny May!

Yours,
Mia

Mia said...

Hello dear Teje,

Happy to hear Nelli is alright, visits to vet are always quite unpleasant still. We've had rainy a few days, so please keep sending sunshine "if" you have some to spare ;) - just in case the weathermen were wrong about the heatwave, they've known to make that mistake previously...

Iloista toukokuuta!

Yours,
Mia

Dear Mia,

I really think your little mouse is very cute. My new favorite!
I love May. Around here it will get so hot over the summer and May is a beautiful month.
More of my flowers are blooming now.
Happy half May.

Dear Megumi,

I like the little mouse a lot too, and I can't understand that I haven'tr used him that much earlier!

May is wonderful here too, but I really love our June&July (when it's nice and warm)... It's usually NOT too hot here ;)

Have a lovely weekend, we'll talk soon again!

Yours,
Mia

Beth said...

Glad to hear it's getting green and pretty with you Mia :-) and what fabulous photos! Do love a nice little lined up, completed work shot. Bethx

Mia said...

Hello Beth,

Thank you! I wish it's all green and beautiful at yours too!

Happy and creative last days of May (already!)!

Yours,
Mia
