The Long Month of May

It's been quite awhile since I posted, but I have good reason!

I had to go into hospital a week ago for a little procedure (all is well) but I knew about this upcoming event since the beginning of May and I was terrified!  I happen to be the biggest coward in the world and all I could think about was this hospital trip.  As this blog is about happy moments, pretty things and lovely times, I just wasn't in that head space!

I'm back now and this week has been one of discovering that I can face my fears and come out the other side.  Of looking with fresh eyes at the simple pleasures of life.  Of daring to dream and setting goals.  In other words, an inspirational week.

These are the simple little things the last couple of days that made me happy, made me smile:

A scarf from Joules, ordered before I went into hospital, in the most delicious shade of blue!

Organic, Peruvian coffee beans, ground in our new grinder and steamed off in our Bialetti coffee machine - yummy!

Looking over an antique clock face we had in the attic and wondering what I can do with it:

Finding time, and enthusiasm, to start sketching again:

And finally, watching our 2 rescue dogs,  Boots and Heidi, chase each other through the buttercups:

Hoping you have the most wonderful week ahead, filled with magic and happiness. xox

Wow! Your dog (the one on the left) looks a LOT like my Marley!

I just wanted to pop on over to your blog because I saw that you did Fill in the Blank Friday and I wanted to say hello. I was super excited to read that you have german shepherds too! I feel like I rarely meet people who have them, but they are such amazing dogs.

Hope you're having a good week!
