march in pictures








March was a bit of a nothing month, to be honest. I had quite a lot of deadlines, and was trying to get everything for Daisy's third birthday sorted out, so we didn't get out and about all that much - the weather wasn't great either, which didn't help.

I went through my fair share of flowers though; I always get excited when I see stocks starting to appear in the shops because they just smell SO GOOD, and I love how the scent just creeps into every room in the house. We've also had carnations, daffodils, gypsophila and the most beautiful pink tulips which clashed just the right amount with my turquoise jug - March is so good for flowers, and the best thing is knowing that there are months and months of the same to come. Lavender and sweetpeas and pinks, oh my!

I spent a bit of time trying to cram in some (non-work related!) crafting in as well; I made Daisy a simple triangle scarf from an old pillowcase and then edged it with some pompom trim, and finally finished her knitted scarf as well (better late than never!) which I'll probably keep for the winter now. I also made some geometric coloured mini-pinboards from IKEA pan stands - they were meant for the kitchen, but I've got a feeling they might end up in the kiddos room!

I kept forgetting to take pictures, so I've picked my favourites from my Instagram feed for March as well - it's just so much easier to whip out a phone than a full size DSLR!

  3. I love what you did to the pot stands - I might have to copy you there! I'm finding that too with my DSLR, I'm kind of over lugging it about when my phone's doing an alright job at the mo!

  9. Like you, I adore the smell of stocks - nothing like them for freshening a house.

    My late mother-in-law had the plates to go with those cups! Though there was only one very battered one left by the time she passed away. It's a great pattern.
