A lovely Mothers Day

I had a lovely Mother's day, abeit not how I would have planned it to end.
We had The Artisan's Spring Fair which was lovely for many reasons. I have posted a piece on our blog about it. For me the best thing was that Olli had a quick portrait sketched by John Gustard. I think that he has captured the essence of him.

He is nearly 12 now (12 days to go). I can't believe it.
I have a very tatty copy of a photograph of my father, at a younger age

I can see the similarity. Perhaps that is because I know them both so well?

Unfortunately, there was a hitch later in the evening but I am pleased to say that things seems to be on the mend now.

Have a good week and I hope that the sun continues to shine for the rest of the week. The garden is bekoning.

The Easter Bunny is getting dressed up

Roberta Rabbit is going to the Artisans in the Spring Fair on Mother's Day in her best hat. She has previously been the shy retiring type, but with the addition of a new outfit is keen to meet some new people. Wishing everyone a lovely weekend and Mother's day whatever you are doing.

The Easter Rabbit has arrived early

I couldn't resist this vintage rabbit to take to the Artisans Spring fair on Mother's Day next week., though I probably won't part with him as he/she is a leggy, firmly stuffed rabbit that makes ne smile.
This week was hectic & on Friday evening I suddenly felt under pressure, time running out, too many projects to finish, family to spend time with, house & garden to organise; you know the feeling! We have a habit of wanting to make the most of everything. At times like this, I know I need to stand still and admire things around me for what they are and appreciate the important things in life.
For me, I want to transform the rabbit into an Easter Bunny......... watch this space, he/she already has a has, so pretty, & spend as much time today with my family.

Just a few of the things I have squirelled (unfortunately, saying rabbited isn't quite the same)away for Easter:

These lovely American postcards make me smile

Enjoy the sunshine today
