Positive Thinking January......

 

 

 

I'm not sure about you,mbut I always slump a bit in January. I'm longing for the lighter nights, warmer sun, and some colour to burst into the garden! Well I've been joining in with a few others on Instagram, looking at the positives each day in January........thought I would share them here as well......think I might do this in February too!

 

Have a lovely weekend everyone, look out for the positives!!!

Lovely idea I feel just like you do its been a terrible start to the year so far for me but I am longing for the lighter nights and the sunshine and warmer weather I know we shouldn't be wishing the year away already. Lovely colourful photo's is that your cat in the crochet :-) ? love the top photo to the yellow cabinet is gorgeous with the vintage fabrics the whole room compliments itself.

    1. Oh Dehlia, I'm sorry it's been such a bad start, and I'm hoping things improve really quickly for you. Yes that's minnie, never far away from a crochet blanket in winter, or a vintage sheet in the warmer months! :) xxx

  6. Naaah... Not me. Always energized. Ready to tackle things. February is worse. A dull month. Thank God for school break spicing it up with happenings... Something is on its way Amanda. It might take a week or two but it is on the way to cheer you up!

  7. Great idea, the first three months of the new year is always a drag. Lets see if I crochet a couple of squares, make a few patchwork hexies or work on my cardigan each evening by April I could have a completed project. What to do, what to do! Love your Liberty fabric selection.

  12. Oh yes yes! I'm doing this very thing but with a fervent search for floral cheeriness.

    I have a shameful confession Ada. I covet your kettle.

    Happy Sunday to you. I do hope today brings some lovely moments

    1. It is lovely isn't it, I have to say we've been using a very dodgy one for the past few months as I was determined to wait until one of these went on the shelves! Enjoy your floral pursuits! :) xxx

  14. Lovely positive things. It can be difficult at this time of year after a busy Christmas, especially is the weather is not nice. It is good to look for the good things in life though isn't it. Some lovely things captured here and I hope that you can find more in the weeks to come! xx

  15. Hello Ada, What delightful photos. Besides your penchant for colour, you may or may not have noticed that your photos feature textures. Cool tiles, rough shag rug, smooth wood. I can almost smell the coffee. No, wait, I CAN smell the coffee! In my cup, as I enjoy your blog.
