Sewing Box, Yellow Border and Raindrops

I’ve had such an enjoyable time today equipping the sewing box, which arrived very late this afternoon, with lovely bits and pieces for LiveWire No 3’s 7th birthday. We just managed to get to the post so that it will arrive on Monday.

The Sewing Box

Inside the box, lots of little parcels to open

Felt shapes to sew together and stuff

There are so many little daffodils in our wall border, all brightening up a very grey day.

The Crocuses are almost done but these two, in their last moments of glory, are just gorgeous covered in raindrops.  Zoom in if you can for an even more glorious view!

I love this one! Crocuses with raindrops.

Friendship, Manderley and Tete a Tete

Some months ago, I had an accident with a glass of red, making our sitting room look as if a grisly event had taken place there. The insurance people were brilliant and we have a new carpet. Rather than the fitters taking away the whole ruined carpet, they cut out the long red section and left us with two large pieces of beautiful cream carpet to give away. Today we delivered the pieces to a Humanist friend and on her wall was the following little plaque which I liked very much.

Friends are crucial to our well being

In the bookshop in Truro, there is a new mural celebrating Manderley, the fictional estate of the character Maxim de Winter which plays a central part in Daphne du Maurier‘s 1938 novel, Rebecca,

Manderley

The little Tete a Tetes in our small wall garden are so lovely, especially against the cerulean sky.

Armandii, Monkeys and Oops x2

The sun shone today and the garden is looking beautiful! Here are some of the Clematis Armandii flowers, the Three Wise Monkeys planter with Muscari now blooming among the Tete a Tete and an unexpected up-side-down shot!

Brightness in the Mizzle, Awake and Sleeping

It has been a murky, mizzly day and I have spent much of it reading about life in Pachuca, Mexico in the late 1800s for our project, ‘Until the Day Break.’  This was my beautiful view through the window.

Last night we Skyped with our family in Spain and I took photos of the screen of Next-to-littlest -LiveWire and his baby sister, five weeks old. They aren’t good photos but aren’t the little ones just so very lovely?
