Things I'm Loving

By PaisleyJade - Friday, June 24, 2011

I wholeheartedly believe that no matter what is happening in your life, there is always something that you can be thankful for... no matter how simple it is.  

Here are a few of the things I am loving at the moment...

Great thrift shop bargains!  I've been wanting a teapot just like this for ages (and may even crochet a teapot cozy for it!!)...

Pinterest - yes, I've decided to speak openly about my love for this amazingly inspirational place.  My pins here.

Mondays and Tuesdays - I love them! These are usually Symon's days off which often means a stroll to one of our favourite spots...

Link love: The amazing job Leonie (from Kiwi At Heart) has done in gathering over 180 softies for the kids in Christchurch!  With the recent shakings, I am sure that these special toys will bring lots of sunshine to some precious children.  Also loving my free Russian Matryoshka Doll Crochet pattern from Cait! Thank you so much.

Loving school assemblies celebrating National Language Week... but not loving that I didn't recognise my own child until the end!  How shocking is that? For your information, she's the one here in the middle, dressed in Middle Eastern garb.  Thankfully I 'accidently' took a photo of her!

Loving a wee bit of softie making...

New fingerless gloves, bought not made this time...
