making me happy…

…this week is our local postie. Look at the treasures she safely delivered.


Another super stylish Japanese Craft book. Can’t wait to make a start of some of the beautiful projects.


A box filled to the brim with notions and fabrics from the 1920’s-40’s.


Look, look, LOOK! Don’t they just make you swoon? Thank you Donna. You have flawless taste in fabrics.


A fabulous print entitled ‘Meg’ by the ultra talented Francesca. I wanted to send her a piece of my work and she suggested that we turn it into a swap. Lucky me!


My new business cards that I simply adore. I would show you the reverse but it has my website address on it that you know, isn’t quite ready yet. Will it ever be I hear you ask?!

So, now you can understand why my post lady has brought a smile to my face this week.

Extra wide smiles appeared today as I enjoyed brunch with Mr TS. Mmmm, fruit platter with vanilla dipping yoghurt.


He also treated me to the most gorgeous necklace by the equally gorgeous Davina Ewing.


Check out her site for some inspiring creations.

Until next time…
