It should be a sad day today as it's the anniversary of the day we lost our lovely son in law Paul, but I don't like sad days so I remembered all the good, happy days we had with Paul as I pottered about in the garden.
These little purple faces made me smile and I remembered when Paul brought me a huge bunch of lillies for looking after Dylan when he and Rachel had a night out,
and I smiled as I planted out these sweet peas from Sarah Raven, they're from the vintage silk sweet pea collection and highly scented
I smiled as I stitched a bunting from the lace on an old torn tablecloth to drape across the bike
and then I smiled some more as I run up a cushion cover from this lovely fabric that I got from Louise at Hope and Elvis.
I even smiled when I made a few more brooches from the abc puzzle from long ago and burned myself with the glue gun, ouch!!
And who wouldn't smile when the sun shines ALL day and you can sit and sew pretties on a new skirt!!
"Let's go fly a kite"
I had fun arranging all my vintage goodies on the painted shelf that I've been collecting, there's everything piled on there from china, glass, packets, tins and even ice cream tubs!!
And I will be positively grinning as tonight I'm not putting a foot in the kitchen, I'm being taken out for tea, now that's what I call a "happy, sad day"
