Snow. Ah. We have even more of the stuff today. LOADS more. This was at 6.30am this morning -
And a little bit later this morning, Poppy going completely loopy in the garden. That girl just loves the snow -
Playing hide-and-seek, tehehe -
Digging for... errmm, no idea -
Remember the pic of the table and chair from yesterday? The soft little cushion and tablecloth of snow? It tripled in thickness overnight! -
I so love watching the birds in the garden, DH and I spent ages this morning giggling at their antics.
Ok, thats enough snow, cold and white. Now for something warm and pink! Ok, so its not warm yet, but it is most definitely the most delicious shade of pink, and you can use the contents to make something nice and warm - a cup of tea! This is the beautiful tin of LADUREE tea which I won from Janet at shabbyfufu a little while ago. Isn't it just gorgeous?
It will look fantastic in our cottage in France.
Whats next? Ah yes. I really have been taken with the sweet little bottlebrush trees in delightful pastel shades, which have popped up all over the American blogs which I follow. Most of them had been bleached, hand dyed and glittered, and they looked fabulous. Could I find little bottlebrush trees here in the UK? Anywhere? Pffftt. I searched for the dinky little green trees everywhere, in town, on the net, no luck. Until I went to a garden centre. And there they were, tiny little green bottlebrush trees! Oh the joy, lol. Only one size, tiny, but hey, they were bottlebrush trees! So I chucked the little green trees into a bowl with bleach and water -
It worked, here they are, still unadorned, unglittered, just bleached -
And while I was at it, I put in a piece of burlap as well to see how it would turn out. I love it in its natural dark colour as well, but I wanted something lighter, so that it would look a little bit less rustic. I am really pleased with the colour after bleaching -
I was photographing these things on the table where I keep two of my inspiration baskets. What are they? They are two baskets where I keep my much loved treasures from two very dear blogging friends, Dorthe and Alexandra -
I have some crafting to do this evening, and now I have to prepare dinner, so off I go!
