Tigger and Slinky were happily distracted by glimmers of sunshine on this cold winter morning.
So we are pet-sitting their border collie – a welcome visitor – whilst they are away.
He is a welcome distraction for Jet who absolutely loves doggie company on his early morning walks.
Another welcome distraction has been reading some fabulous novels – and marking my place in said books with my unique, feel good bookmark all the way from the USA! (OK, so it’s not meant to be a bookmark but it works really well as one and puts a huge smile on my face every time I open my book!)
Can you see any hints as to who this beautiful handmade card and envelope might be from?
It’s very “gardeney” and has gorgeous stamps.
And do I see a neighbourhood cat there called Mighty Mouse?
Yes, you guessed it!
This beautiful handmade card and envelope (repurposed from a lovely gardening calendar) was sent to me by amazing blogger Alys of Gardening Nirvana.
And just look at Alys’ beautiful business card below (there were many more details on the card but I blocked them out just in case Alys didn’t want all her details broadcast on the www).
The happy vibes emanating from Alys’ pretty business card have inspired my final welcome distraction of the day.
Do you remember I made some flowers for Mother’s Day using the talented and lovely Lucy from Attic 24′s pattern?
Well, I’ve finally turned them into something that I’ve become a bit obsessed with lately …
I’ve strung them all together and lookey, lookey …
a happy flower bunting to grace my newly sorted craft room.
Yes, I’m a little “hung up” on bunting at the minute and am using all sorts of unusual things to make the joyous dangly things.
Stay tuned soon for a craft room update and some vintage bunting love and craziness!
I hope you’ve had plenty of welcome distractions in your day today.
