52 Weeks of Happy - 12/52

Joining in with Jen at little birdie, here are my four photos of happiness for the past week.

Flowers by my bedside make me very happy. It's a simple way to make the bedroom feel fancy. These daffodils are in a jar prettified by me. I've been loading up on daffodils lately; they're inexpensive and so cheerful. I think I'll buy some more when I shop later this week.

These are Cadbury Mini Eggs in an antique cut-glass dish. So totally happy.

As a devotee of the GreenGate blog, I was very excited a few months ago when they announced a lower-cost line of their clothing to be sold at UNIQLO, but we don't have one of their stores and shipping is a little high for buying online. I really wanted one of their stoles, though. I was still pining for one when I went to Payless Shoes and found the above scarf! The print is a little different from the GreenGate ones, but so pretty. I love the colors and the size; it's huge and can be worn in a lot of different ways. I wore it last week with my favorite bright pink t-shirt, and it dressed up my shirt nicely. I'm so happy with this find.

It's finished. My traditional granny afghan is done and we used it all weekend on the couch and around the family room (it was cold and windy, and we did a fair bit of lazing). I'm happier with this blanket than I thought I would be. It was not the happiest project to work on but the finished product is growing on me quickly, which makes me very happy. More on this blanket very soon...


  1. I absolutely love your granny afghan, you are so talented. I am loving daffodils at the moment too, they are cheap, smell delightful and very mood lifting! :o) xx

  2. Your blanket looks beautiful! Well done. I love the Cadbury eggs, yum. I had not heard of those stoles before but I love the pattern on your new scarf. Have a Happy Monday. :)

  3. I love your crocheted jar cover. I'd like to have a go at making one. I think I have about 7 different jars or vases or jugs of daffs around the house currently. I am not normally this extravagant but I saw some nacissi marked down to 30p a bunch recently so I bought all the bunches they had, about 6. It seemed rude not to!

    Great scarf, the colours are so vivid and cheerful. And I have eaten about 100 mini eggs this week. They are way too moreish.

  4. Your granny afghan is so beautiful and I imagine that snuggling up beneath it was really cozy and fun! Beautiful colors!

  5. It sounds like you had a wonderful and perfect weekend! And to finish the blanket.. bravo! Now, please take a photo of it draped on your sofa so we can see more of it! It makes me want to start a granny square!! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  6. Your pictures make me happy too, thank you!

  7. Anazing afghan! I would enjoy time to crochet again.

    Do you plan on a new crocheting project?

  8. Oh I love Greengate, I love their crockery, but unfortunately it's a bit out of my price range. Your scarf is beautiful and I love your afghan :) xx

  9. Oh I love your scarf, so pretty! Love the flowers also.


Thank you for leaving a comment. It's so good to hear from you! I don't always have time to reply but I try to answer questions when I can.
