I'm a Lucky Girl

Hello Lovelies ,
I'm feeling all smiley and positive today . I wonder why ? Oh yes that'll be due to the warm sunny weather ...Yay :0) It's been so warm here today. My sunglasses have come out of hibernation and I even went out without any socks on today !
I've been pretty good this winter , I've mostly managed to keep the glums away by looking for the pretty things about winter.But Spring is very welcome .There's so much to take pictures of :0)
Just this week there is suddenly blossom .......



And Daffodils ....



And more Lambs :0).....



I love this shot,and feel very lucky to have gorgeous countryside like this virtually on my doorstep.

Something else I feel fortunate about is being part of the blog community.

Yesterday , after a tough day at work , I came home to a parcel .....a parcel from the other side of the world ,Australia, no less......



Yes , it was my giveaway win from the talented Jules at Little Woollie ,inside the parcel ...look what I found....





Wow !!! such beautiful work ...It must have taken ages Jules.......


I really love this flower pattern and the colours are just gorgeous ..........




I've hung it up in my conservatory and it looks right at home with the other crochet goodness.........



Thank you so much Jules , I love it :0)

Have you noticed , I've managed to make my photos appear bigger ...yippee. I've been trying to figure this out for ages...lucky indeed :0)

  1. Hi Jacquie, it is so nice to see pretty spring flowers. We are having yet another snow storm. Not a bad one, but it's very cold and raw. My little crocus are being brave though and the daffodils are on their way.

  3. Your spring flowers are pretty and bright and those lambs are sooooooo cute! :)
    What a lovely gift to receive. The flowers are beautiful and look fabulous hanging in your conservatory. I like the look of the other crochet lovelies in there too.
    May your sunglasses stay in use this week.

  5. Lovely flowers! Enjoy the sunshine. Raining here in So. California...US. Love that though, as we get plenty of sunshine here, and not near enough of the wet stuff!1

    I can hear the chirpiness in your voice.........

    How gorgeous is that photo of the sheep? English countryside at it's picture perfect best.

    Jules garland looks right at home too, surrounded by all your crochet goodness Jacquie.

    Love the cushion on top of the couch, bright, striking colours.

    A lovely Springy post,

    Claire :)

  17. You most certainly are a very lucky girl! Just a perfect gift for a spring day, love those flowers, they look perfect in your hooky room. I too am just overwhelmed at how gorgeous all the unfolding spring is around us. The sunshine sure does help ! xox Penelope

    ps. Your photo's look bigger, did you do something different ? x

  18. You HAVE to have winter to get a Spring as beautiful as yours... we have tropical weather all year round here in North Queensland, so we never get to see Spring appear before our eyes. It was one of my favourite things about living in Europe (when I did a few years ago) - watching the seasons change - especially watching the world literally wake up in Spring. Yes, you are lucky indeed. :-)

    PS How DID you get your pictures so big? :)

  19. I really should get out and take some local pictures of the Peaks. It is very early for blossom isn't it? I have noticed it too. Now, I love that flower garland. Gorgeous indeed. I also need to make my pics bigger - just need to take the time to do it but I think it might change all my background and stuff so not sure how I do it without changing it all. x

  29. The flower garland is truly beautiful, what a lovely gift. Your spring photos are great too, not much blossom here, yet...

  30. The flowers are absolutely lovely! I'm going to have to try it myself! I have to say, all the crocheted cushions and hand made loveliness in your conservatory makes me jealous. Can I use the word lovely again? I think so. LOVELY!!
