These are some of the things which are pleasing me at the moment:
A dresser filled to bursting with gorgeous china - some old and chipped, some new and pretty. All used constantly and loved.
A platter and a pig (which Davey bought from a junk shop because he reminded him of his brother - in the nicest way!).
Daffodils, bright and happy, lighting up every corner.
A greenhouse full of seeds which have already moved on since this picture.
A tray of basil seedlings in the front porch where we always grow it for endless pestos. I so love fresh pesto and the taste of summer which fills your mouth with every bite...yum.
Shells, shells, shells... and sea-smoothed pebbles and softened glass. All over the house, in jars and bowls and very often lying where they fall after games of Ship, ship sailing.
This book which is the bedtime story of the moment for Lucy and I snuggled together under her quilt. This is the fourth of the Laura Ingalls Wlder books and is every bit as good as the rest.
Knitting still pleses me greatly, though this little jacket of soft lilac has been so near completion for about a year now! I thought if I put it here and say it will be finished by the weekend I risk mortification if it is not! Well, we'll see.
And of course, the sea...
Happy Wednesday everyone x
