Just in case you hadn't noticed, changes to the look of the blog have taken place over the weekend. Lovely Hubby has sorted me out with a banner for the top and colour matched a background to make it look pretty - what a hero!
You might recognize the banner - it's my 2007 photo journal - but he played with the photos to make something that would fit. You'll have to let me know if the orange colour is horrid to look at - we think it looks fine, but if loads of people think it's uggghhh rather than oooooh then maybe we need to think again!
I've been bust with stuff I can't show on here for the moment so instead I'll show you some stash photos. I've been sorting my flowers and ribbons recently as new treasure has come into my possession. So first off I now have 2 drawers for my ribbon, although a few punches share one of them. The bundle of loos ribbon came in the box with my SA Kit the other week - their extra bits and bobs shop is such good value and if you get "extras" sent with your monthly kit you don't pay extra postage - so it would be rude not to, really! The blue and lilac ribbons lying in the righthand drawer are Prima ones and come on a cute stand - they usually live on the shelf looking pretty!
I had quite a few bottles of Prima flowers, plus lots more in some of those cheap spice jars that Tesco were selling a couple of months back. I'm not sure how it happened but all of a sudden the collection of loose blooms outgrew the boxes they were in, so a reshuffle was called for and a "Bloomers Drawer" made room for. A happy afternoon was spent chopping up soap powder boxes and covering them with pretty paper to make finding the right flowers easier, Yes I know I was just avoiding doing the "real" jobs that are on my list! They do look pretty though, don't they? ;-)
The bottles are still on the shelf and the boxes now have room for the big blooms.
Maybe nzt time I'll show you my beads.....Or maybe not
And finally some outdoorsy photos from last weekend.....
Here's the first gorgeous camellia to have opened in the garden. I love this plant, how stunning is that colour? Really cheers me up when I seen the camellia in bud , knowing that Spring really is just around the corner.
And these two are from our blossom-hunting walk last Sunday. Of course, yesterday it was howling gales, and HAILSTONES - plus some bright blus sky - it's all gone weird!
