I can't believe it's snowing again Mia. I am glad you have found lots of lovely bright things to cheer you. I L*O*V*E those Moomin scizzors, how cool are they! We still have plenty of hot yellow sunshine here(a whole month of it now, but would you believe it we really do need some rain, the gardens are so dry).Happy May my dear, whatever the weather!

Oh dear I see the snow has not gone! :(
Love all your yellow though, just the colour to brighten you up and what a little artist your nephew is. :)

Hi Viv,

It's been horrible weather all day, but it seems, that the ground is so wet the snow will not stay :) so it just snows and disappears soon, I am thankful for that :)

My nephew is a real artist, and besides that artsy piece he glued everything to the table, himself, floor... He's the dearest!

Happy week!

Yours,
Mia

No! Not more snow? Your lovely bright things are a great idea to distract you from the weather! What a clever nephew you have! I hope you have some nice sunny, snow-free days very soon, Mia, and I wish you a happy May!

Happy May to you too, hope the weather gets better soon. I really love your Moonin scissors, I want a pair.

Mia said...

Hello Helen,

And I'm afraid yes :( but it doesn't seem to stay, thankfully, it's just so cold that what would otherwise be rain is snow. In May! I know!

But the days are light and grass is getting almost green-ish...I'm happy! Have a wonderful week too!

Yours,
Mia

Mia said...

Have a wonderful, sunny and warm first week of May!

Teje said...

Hello Mia! It just can't be snowing...not allowed!
I love your photos...Unikko, Muumi and Muumi scissors - aahh!
We had today suddenly hot, dry south wind and +34, that sounds good to you but it wasn't so nice to clean and sweat.
I hope you get soon hot and sunny weather! xxx Teje

Mia said...

I know, Teje, it just isn't allowed to snow in May :)

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...
