♥ 52 Weeks of Happy ♥ 3/52

Hello Lovelies,
here goes with my third week of simple happy things, no food picture  this time , but then I did do a whole post about soup at the weekend :0)
This week has been mightily cold ( -4 Celsius in the daytime some days and snow on the ground) , so it's hardly surprising two of the things that made me happy are warm clothes.

1. top happy thing this week has to be finding half price luxury yarn in my LYS. These lovely warm colours appealed most and will be added to "stashmerino", it's growing slowly.

2. My old faithful  "comfort blanket" polo neck jumper. It's so cozy in the cold weather.

3. New slippers, couldn't resist these bright red ones with gingham hearts and a fluffy lining when my old ones wore out.

4. The first tiny "tete-a-tete" flowering in our bathroom....just love these sunny flowers to cheer a cold winter day.

Wishing you all many happy moments this weekend

p.s. I'm working on the tutorial....can't wait to show you lovelies how to make my multicoloured owls :0)

  3. Lovely cheery pics - thanks for sharing

  4. hiya- is that a round stool with a crochet top underneath your lovely wools?
    If so, please (if you have time) could you quickly tell me how to do it?
    I hope that isn't too much of an imposition

    1. Hi Elaine , there are more pics of this on my Flickr....I made it pre blog and didn't use a pattern , just made it up as I went along. Sorry I can't be more help. I love it too.

I've been enjoying the snow all week and today my school is closed so I have an extra few hours at hope which is much appreciated! Snow will be featuring in my 52 weeks post in Sunday for sure! Hope you have a lovely weekend!

  11. Oooh I love your Happies this week! Beautiful yarn, a cheerful daffodil to give us hope for better weather, warm cosy slippers.... not sure if my unpredictable hot flushes could cope with the polo neck though!!
