Sunshine stay with me

Hello dear friends!

After a bad relapse (snow, wind, cold weather) spring is really here! Sun shines and skies are blue, and little green is peaking here and there, more by the day. Lovely, and not a minute too soon! May 1st, which is a big spring celebration here (and actually opens summer-season but that might bee too much to ask this year) is just a few days away. We have cleaned and raked the yard and hb has pimped the BBQ (new wheels and overall scrub) and we are crossing our fingers to get some action to it on May Day. The weatherguys here have been pretty shy to say anything certain about May weather, but some snow is coming still (can you believe it?) but it seems that eastern parts of Finland will be safe this time, phew.

Spring gear is out (Thank you M for the cutest ever ladybug coinpurse!), and all things wintery have been stuffed away for good a several months at least. House still needs some decluttering (when not?) and windows scream washing, and my shop also could do some shelf emptying, so I made a SPRING-SALE -section there, and items there are -30% - -40% (prices reduced already, no need for coupon codes), and you are all so welcome to take a look.

I wish you all happy last days of April, and wonderful May soon too! Sunshine to your days!



Lovely times

We have the very first sunny day for a week today. I grabbed my camera and started shooting; Easter-things have been out for a while but pictures of them have been gray and gloomy. Not today - I wish you get the sunshine through your screen from these:


Lot's of flowers, tulips and hopefully soon-opening-daffodils in a vase, happy egg-hunt treasuries, Beth Foster's fantastic bunnies, mice and chicken and my treasured bunny-purse by her, and like last years minions, some toilet-roll figurines this year too, Maisy&Charlie (Maisa&Keke for us) for my little niece to find tomorrow (and a Super Mario and Yoshi to be made for my nephew still), these are the key ingredients for our Easter this year. How about you?

Lovely Easter-time to you all, enjoy!


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...
