I'm still fairly new to the blog world , also the crochet world, so I love it when I find a new blog, and this is a wonderful one:
I'm still trying to find my "Style" for my blog, and my life come to that, and greatly admire blogs like the above that have a wonderful feel to them, I have a whole list of favourites, that I log on to nearly every day, knowing that they will make me smile and give that warm and fuzzy feeling. so "thank you" ladies.
I've mentioned my 7 yr personallity change therory, and the fact that this year ,my 42nd, is the end of a 7yr period. Normally I feel the changes in small hops along the 7 yrs, however this year I can feel myself changing in huge leaps!! it's quite strange, not unpleasent, but strange!!!

This belongs to Count and Countess Hubert d'Ornano, founders of the Sisley cosmetic empire. and to see more, go to the wonderful blog
she has the most amazing posts, all colour and glamour
This is what I wear every day. I feel naked without any of it. The front two are my engagement and wedding ring. I had the wedding ring made to fit the wiggle in the engagement ring. as you can see I'm very much a silver girl and none to subtle either . "Less is more" is NOT my way.
I have a ( small) collection of jewelery with bees as the theme, these are a pair of earrings bought for me by the wonderful Scotsman, my husband. I have a thing about Hares as well, but can't find that much jewelry with them on.
Yay!! I've finally started a ripple blanket, I've wanted to do one for a while, but It's taken time for me to learn how to read a pattern and understand it, and of course a few trial runs, but now I've got it , it still seems sooo easy!!

I love the English weather, snowing one moment, sun shine the next and all in April, supposedly spring!!!
I have been to to the far east, spending Christmas day in a tee shirt, sweltering was very strange. I 'm a very pale skinned , green eyed and slightly freckly person, so hot weather is not really my thing, but today was bizarre, how wonderful!!!
as Billy Connolly says
" there's no such thing as bad weather, just the wrong clothing" Well said!
the veg patch doesn't look too inspiring, that's the garlic at the front, you wait !!!!I'll show you me onions later!!!
the lavender ladies, enjoying the sunshine
and the kitchen window sill, where else would you grow your seedlings!!! let me introduce you, from left to right, that's lemon coriander, sweet peas, sunflowers, and basil.
and this is normal coriander and lemon coriander again, she's a bit pushy,
so our bargain £45 green house is taking shape. our neighbour, the other side, not the sheep, told us about this , the top was OK and we've got about 70% of the glass but the one end, had completely gone and was all twisted and broke, and the whole lot was buried under nettles and all sorts, it took a whole day to get it out and loaded in pieces on to the van,but the husband can rebuild it . bless him, he worked all through the Easter break, in the wind and the rain, I'm very proud of him.
the bottom section will be wood, and the one end, then the top will be glass, as yet to be put in, but it's coming together if a little slowly.but we'll get there.
I've been weeding, this is a close up of the wonderful lady lavender, I made a new bed last year and it's full of lavender, oh what an indulgence, a whole bed of lavender, and the odd poppy.
spring is on the way, the lilac is budding, I WILL work out how to focus!!!! it's the story of my life!!! never quite focusing on the thing right in front of you!!!
the Eucalyptus is sprouting too, the colours are wonderful and I love the scent. she's growing into a beauty!!!
