Reasons to be cheerful.

I know it's 10 days later than when I said I'd be back and I haven't finished my bits of Spring crafting yet either! The reason for the absence well although my mum died over 5 years ago I still get a bit down on certain occasions one of them being mother's day, of course. For a week or so beforehand everything becomes a bit of a bother and needs a lot of effort. Anyway it's all done & dusted now and I'm here with a few reasons to be cheerful.
Picnicking on the beach at Crackington Haven on Mothering Sunday.
We even managed to take our coats off as you can see it was a beautiful day here.


Then strolling through Boscastle, one of my favourite places.

Finding an 18 piece teaset of June Rose Pyrex in it's original box. I've been collecting this for a few years so was very excited to find this and made a swift dash across the CS to grab it!
New books.
New old books all 1960's. The Practical Gardening and food production is brilliant and covers absolutely everything, including keeping chickens, which I aim to do very soon.
Some mother's day gifts, the lovely CK lookalike bag from Primark.
A Gisella Graham crochet cake container,
and a lovely bouquet of flowers.
Daffodils and crocuses in the garden.

Some 1970's fabric acquired from MIL.
Lily's Spring bonnet biscuits :)
And finally a sunshine award kindly given to me from Maria at Country Style living blog, if you haven't already do pop over and see her lovely blog and vintage homewares store. I'm useless at passing on awards properly and know many people have this one but if you haven't and would like it you're most welcome. Thankyou Maria.
Now I must go and do some baking as that's another thing I couldn't be bothered to do.

What a beautiful day, the sky is gorgeous, and what lovely presents. Yay for chicken keeping, they are lovely and a great way to waste time - I can stand for hours just watching them, they are fascinating.

I adore Boscastle. My family have a house there and it is a place of pure bliss to me!

They are indeed reasons to be cheerful! You are incredibly lucky to be down in Cornwall, it is my most favourite place in the world! Boscastle is one of our favourite places! It looks like you have had some lovely weather down there! x
