Making me happy this week:
These gardenias from my mother-in-law’s garden. Their perfume make me think of my beautiful grandmother.
Ditto these pink roses.
Some green flummery. It looks gross, but it’s sweet and light and tastes just like my childhood.
I fell in love with this beautiful invitation to a twenty-first birthday party. It’s not even mine – it’s for three of my siblings (she misspelt “Jan, Cindy and Bobby”), but that’s not the point. Oh, those darling tiny squares of fabric! The little line of machine stitching on the paper! Bunting always makes me smile inside.
Four hand-made friends given to
me my children by my very talented Aunty.
They were very quickly welcomed into the family.
OK, I must come clean: the handmade gifts did not arrive last week – I took the last two photos months ago and have been meaning to post about them ever since. But aren’t they lovely? I still smile when I look at them.
What’s making you smile this week?
