Well, Christmas is now officially over, so gone is the festive mantle, time for something calmer and a little less cluttered.
I always need spring flowers on my mantle in January, I looked for some hyacinths but couldn't find any so opted for tulips instead, two bunches, yellow and white......beautiful!
And I had some of these as a birthday gift, but can't remember what they are called. I'm feeling the need for a splash of colour!
And then there's my wonderful Liberty garland sewn for me by the very talented Clare, from Selfsewn, it's gorgeous....I've always loved Liberty prints and will share some more with you soon!
It's inspired me to make a Liberty Quilt.
I've had this jug and little teacup for over 25 years now, they are by Emma Bridgewater and always feature somewhere in my home. My little painting I got from Florence, oh I do hope I can go back one day, a truly beautiful city.
I've decided to keep this photo of my Mum up here, with a little pot dog for company!
So a simple mantle, the flowers will keep being replaced, I so need a bit of spring during these dark days.
Thank you all so much for popping by here, and thank you to those who leave your thoughts with me, I read each and every one. I'm going to try and reply to each comment...I've been very lax of late and that's not good!
I've a few more thoughts coming into my head about the changes I'd like to make here, nothing too drastic but things that will keep it interesting. I wish I was more technical as I'd like to change the look of my blog but daren't touch anything!
Perhaps next time I pop back I will share a bit of Liberty Love with you?
See you soon,
Amanda :) xxx
