Today is one of those 'a little of this, a dash of that' kind of posts. We have rolled into June with no real sign of spring or summer in sight but, that doesn't mean we are hunkering down in our grumpy sweaters and staying put on the grouch couch.
In fact, I tried to take the grouch out of the couch by gussying it up for a guest. Some Summer roses and my new new cushions called to action. Yes, I am putting my flowery foot forward and brightening up the place as much as I can.
Helping with the happy was a parcel in the post. I ordered a couple of fab handcrafted brooches from My Bearded Pigeon, the new venture of Cath from chunkychooky. They arrived quicksticks all the way from Australia and they are so flippin' great! Cath was super sweet and sent along an extra lil' sumpthin' in the way of a fridge magnate! Go now and check out her wares, you wont be sorry.
In other handcrafted (granny) goodness; I was the very lucky winner last week of The Royal Sisters amazing new Granny Slipper Pattern! Michelle is a wonder with hook and yarn and keeps coming up with hit after hit of hooky goodness! You can get your very own copy of the pattern in her lovely shop along with other gorgeous things. I can't wait to give these beauties a go!
