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!

Ah I'm so glad Springtime has decided to visit Finland and this time stay a while! Fingers crossed for BBQ weather next week. That's the trouble with sunshine (but one I'm willing to put up with) it shows up windows that need cleaning!!!
Enjoy your week my friend and may that sun keep shining!

Moi Mia

I'm so glad that the sun is shinning for you, it brings so much cheer and makes the days feel welcoming :)
After quite a few sunny days here we had .......snow yep snow yesterday ( just a small amount on high ground)
I am enjoying the lighter days / nights.
I also have now my own Craft room, my middle son moved out 2 months ago. so I claimed his room. Your pot holder and Moomin goodies have pride of place with a shelf to themselves in there. ( Much too special to actually use on the pans hehehe)

Hope the sun shines for you this weekend
Hyvää Vappu Ystäväni

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...
