Darling buds of May (almost)

Spring, spring, spring! Sun shines, snow has disappeared and weather is getting warmer. Slowly but surely - and the flowers are appearing too.



The bushes were the first ones to bloom this year...



...but it didn't take too long to ground start blossoming too!



They come in all colors...



...shapes and...



...sizes this year!



I picked them up and put them into my shop to you to enjoy - and there's a special spring campaign there too (shipping is free for two or more items).

Happy Wednesday!

Yours,
Mia

They're gorgeous Mia!
Adding lots of colour until the 'real' flowers appear which shouldn't be too long now that your snow has gone.
Happy Wednesday,

Hi Mia, I saw these early this morning. These new ones are so beautiful. Cheery and colorful, my favorite is the dark purple one.

They would be lovely for Mother's Day or any day!

Happy Wednesday,

Such gorgeous bags, Mia! I love the felted flowers and the way you made these bags so bright and spring like. I'm sure they will be flying out of your shop! I hope you have a lovely day.

Hi Mia, I'm SO glad to see all your snow has gone. I can feel all that colour energising you. Your new bags are so vibrant and cheerful. Lovely new work; you know how much I love all your handmades. We spent yesterday with Milly and Tom, it was so sunny too!

Hello lovely Mia, I think blogger is playing ball today so I'm rushing all my comments in before it quits :) Lovely, lovely bags, especially the dark green one and I was about to write I'm glad that the snow is melting but I saw in your next post that it's back - oh no! I hope it's gone soon and Spring can begin. Bethx

Mia said...

I am so happy to see you here again, Beth, I read about your difficulties with blogger!

Thank you for your nice comment, the bags really are the only flowers to be seen around here :( but but but there have been rumors about next week... +22c promised!!!

Waiting for that!

Happy first week of May!

Yours,
Mia

This time of the year...

Usually around this time, when children go back to school, and you can just about to smell the autumn, I start to dig deeper in my fabric...
