Good morning all! I have just spent the night listening to the most ferocious gale! I dream't that my windows blew in, but thankfully they didn't. It was a night of very loud wind and rain. I felt for my hardy cabin folks, who must surely have been waiting for the cabins to lift off in true Wizard of Oz fashion! And it must have sounded so loud under those cabin roofs! Up on a hill in Gloucestershire means we have no danger of flooding, but instead have been whipped by the rain and the north westerlies coming up the valley. The news has shown waves coming up the high street in Cornwall and I feel so sorry for the people who's houses have been flooded out, and the farmers trying to cope with their cattle on the somerset levels. Such challenges.
I hope you are warm safe and dry wherever you are.
I am a little late with my hearts post! we have been having a few internet problems here. I think it may be due to a little mouse who might be living near the cable!.....something else to have to solve!...... I am enjoying this burst of colour from these daffodils and also the lovely scent too.
I followed the pattern from Sandra at Cherry heart for the hearts. I think I got it, although each one is a bit different.
like Sandra I decided to string them together with some beads and make a dangly decoration. You can see it here against the lovely blue of this cupboard. Which I don't think I've shown you before. This is our games cupboard. It's still full of all the games and puzzles we have played over the years, like a time capsule really.
I found this cupboard about 10 years ago in someones garden after it was thrown out.
Can you believe it! The story goes that one day they left a visiting artist friend for a few hours with some paint pots and when they came home it had been transformed to this. It had been in their hall for a long time.
Well I can tell you that I moved heaven and earth to get this home and save it from the rain. It's really rather magical.
Can I give a quick mention to Hesta at Clover Clogg. Are you good at making up names? Hesta is running a competition to guess the name of one of her lovely dolls. The winner will receive one of her whimsical mermaid dolls and it's open until the end of March.
Have a good day,
