Some early thoughts of Spring

004Good morning everyone!  Now that the hectic holidays of Christmas and New Year have come and gone, I am sure that we have all gotten back to the usual daily bustles of busy lifestyle.  Back to school and work.  And I hope you’ve all been well too.

005Since I’m starting to feel like winter is never going to end, I figured it was time to bring a little bit of a spring feel to my blog with some floral cushions I did sometime last year.  As you may know me by now that I love my vintage floral designs, I surely went vintage with the taste. I am saving them for Spring and Summer seasons since I was thinking what to write about to cheer you up during this dark winter days, I thought some pretty floral crafting will do you all some justice. 003Are you not thinking of Spring and Summer already? Thanks to having your little bloggy friend at My Country Epoque – “laugh.”  I crafted this special pillow cushion last year when my daughter did not feel too well, and mum made her this pretty pillow to cheer her up and made her feel well.  We love “mothers” don’t we?  And I want to dedicate this beautiful picture “above” to all mothers.008I am so happy that January has finally arrived.  A New Year, maybe a new you, but most of all January and February will run so quickly, and this is what we want, since we are all craving for that Spring Season to kick in as quickly as possible. 009I must say I have made a pause and reflect on life a bit at the beginning of this new dawn…holding those I love a little bit closer and trying to look at things with a different stance. To do that, I needed to put on hold a bit of things I suppose.  I took some days off from 15th December to 8th January, I had more than enough time to do the thinking.001Anyway, am still here, I have been taking pictures of all these wonderful cushions and pillow cushions and loving every moment of it. It seems like there is so much to learn about taking pictures and I just can’t make it sink into my head quickly enough!  It is not about holding my camera, but adjusting to it is too big for me – hey you know the secret?  I bought a new camera last year, and if you think I am a photographer, you should listen to my story of photography – you may be rolling on the floor with laughter already – “laugh.”015These photos of cushions are just a few in a series that I took recently. If you follow me on Instagram you may have already seen them. I do post there too on a somewhat regular basis – when the time hits my mind that Instagram is calling for some pictures, since it’s much faster than blogging.017Besides everything, I have just been busy with life over the last few months, I’ve been feeling like I lost a bit of time to meet some people more than I should have had, but I’m not really sure why. I suppose that’s just how life is sometimes.019Well, I thought I’d take a few photos to try and get back into the swing of things. I always love flowers and fabrics, so that’s what I went with. Isn’t those lacy ribbons pretty? My old friend who passed away last March gave them to me awhile back. Great lady she was, that “Marion.”  Rest in Peace my Marion, I am sharing your love to the world!  I am your great little friend down here.  I will love you always!dsc_0032I look at those floral cushions and I keep hoping that the wonderful weather is just over the horizon. This winter has already felt so long that I absolutely can’t wait for some warm, sunny days. I’m sure a lot of you are with me on this, are you not?021Well, I suppose, that’s all for today. Will you be surprised if I tell you that I already took photos for another post? …yay me!  Otherwise, I will hopefully see you again here soon!  Won’t be long before I come back!
