Our Winter Season

A cosy winter enters our home in quiet ways this year. We have really had such mild weather . Our fires have been burning through the day but on venturing outside, we could quite easily whip off our cardigans and beanies and bask in the beautiful Sun. Olivia and I decided to dress our nature table today. We have just pruned our Bay tree. No waste, as in came the branches to hang up and use for stews and broths. We have fed the birds today leaving fruit and seed around the garden. We too brightened Olivia's bedroom with more fairy lights and color. Love this little sweet Livy of mine...who just adores this fluffy little poodle.. I have been busy. Just a different kind of busy. Clearing clutter, looking after sick kiddies and spinning some wool for cowls and hats. Really nice slubby wool for extra bulk. I hope you are basking in the Sun too as you enjoy your Summer Days~ Please take note of my dear mini chicken. She has decided she does not belong in the farmyard with the other chickens. No, she wonders our home sleeping in corners laying eggs and nests at my feet. She really does make a good advert for 'chicken breasts' dont you think? ROUND, PLUMP, HEARTY ones~! Love to you Suzanne X

So happy you've had a mild winter--we've had s very cool spring and some days I feel as though our weather matches yours.
I work at clearing clutter, but I have so many new designs to submit for my launch next year and my time has been in the studio. I've been thinking about you a lot and hope your family is healing...it will take time, but know you're in my heart, always~XOXO

The lights make your daughters room so festive ~ such a simple and easy change but yet it can do so much for a room. And that adorable chicken...we had a pet rooster that my daughter insisted on bringing inside...so she invented the "chicken diaper"! It really worked! She also invented a "Rooster leash" so she could walk him around...it was quite comical. I really love your blog...

Your dog looks so comfortable. I think your dog is a little spoiled. That's ok though. Were allowed to spoil our dogs.
