Dreary weather calls for drastic measures and for me that means only one thing -
flowers, and plenty of them.
Paper white daffodils here on my bedside table, well, chest of drawers strictly.
Gorgeous floral tea cups for £1.50! Pretty Greengate and CK tea towels and some fabric too, all destined for new lives as cushions on the new sofa (thanks for all the brilliant ideas and advice on re-covering it - mum and dad were going to buy us new doors for our old house last Christmas but we never got around to it so they've very kindly offered to get the sofa reupholstered for us! Just need to pay a visit to the bargain fabric shop with my fingers crossed.)
Yet more floral china - rubbish photo sorry, but I couldn't resist these, every woman needs a matching china sugar bowl and milk jug doesn't she? It's the law.
And today, walking home from school snowdrops were popping up all over the place, as if they decided suddenly that today was snowdrop day and out they came. I know spring isn't nearly on the way yet, but just seeing that life is stirring is wonderful. Aaaaahhh, that's betteer.
