I’m back after a mini blogging break, which loosely translates to we’ve all been sick, ex-haus-ted & abit more tired with a cherry on top!!
That doesn’t mean that God hasn’t been good in these tough times, just that it’s been a rubbish couple of weeks! I’ve been blessed by my prayer triplet, mentor, a word of encouragement & a parcel from the USA. Also I’ve been reminded of the quote ‘this too will pass’ & so it will.
So here goes with my joy-filled Five!!!
ONE – Planning Sweet Bea’s 1st Birthday
It’s so special to plan your baby’s 1st birthday. If you follow me on Pinterest you will see a little board sneaked in for ideas for my gorgeous girl’s special day.
Tissue paper pom-pom’s, a ruffled cake & pink macaroons are in the plan.
I’ll post pictures next week & we’ll see if it all comes together. Whatever happens I’m so blessed to be celebrating this precious little girl with our friends & family. What a joy she is.
Look how cute her invitations turned out! I used a company called Simply to Impress online & was really pleased with the service. The cards are really good quality.
With SB’s 1st birthday also brings the end of the baby stage. It’s emotional/we made it!
TWO – Chalk Paint Ercol Chairs
I’m so happy I decided finally to get my Ercol chairs painted with chalk paint! I love the look & Ercol are back on trend. Have a look & let me know what you think.
The 3 different colours idea came from seeing the styling at Ravenhurst B&B in Cheltenham, their colour way really pops! I really love colour & the colours we chose go so well with our scheme at home.
Farrow & Ball // Lime White // Pavilion Grey // Oval Room Blue
THREE – Spring is on it’s Way
I’m overjoyed to see the first signs of Spring. I’m so over Winter.
Me & Sweet Harry planted some bulbs last year & he’s so excited to see the little shoots coming up.
All around my hometown I see daffodils, primroses & snowdrops & every sighting lifts my heart a little. Yay for Spring!
FOUR – My ‘Geek Chic’ Glasses
I didn’t get on with contacts in the end so after I resigned myself to glasses it took me an AGE to choose a pair.
As soon as I switched optician & walked into Specsavers I was sold on these Gok Wan designer specs. I only really need them for driving but find myself wearing these a lot more than I need to. I have another pair as sunglasses.
I thought the service was brilliant & was interested to hear GW himself designed their uniforms, good work!
FIVE – Sprinkle of Glitter Motivational Monday
This gal always hits the mark with her blog posts, I especially enjoy Louise’s Motivational Monday feature. This is the post that spoke to me most this month.
Thanks to my hosts, April, Christina, Darci & Natasha.
See you in March friends!
