Paper planes and Sunday tea stains

Sunday, it's the day before Monday.  Sybil and I have been on the veranda making brooches for the MoB store, I will take them in tomorrow.  

We have bits of paper flying about the house, floating down the stairs, swifting along the hall and getting caught in corner spider webs.  I should take the time to clean up this house and workspace, but there is only 48 hours in a weekend and i would rather make mess than clean it up.

I will clean it up next week.

I made these little hearts for my kitchen window last night.  They are made from old horse books a friend gave me.  It reminds me of all the things i love and want and need this year and right now.

1. Spanish, I want to learn so I can live rent an apartment in Buenos Aries and get a stray dog and dance Tango at 2am with a gorgeous boy and a grin like an idiot. 


2. Hove beats in my heart, like the feeling I get when I think of the smell of his hair in the morning so far away.


3. Chickens, I miss my chickens Stella and Margot.  I want new chickens, I like they walk they make little noises as they strut about messing up the garden and eating bugs.


4. Ponies.  I want a pony.  I still want a pony.

Hearts in my kitchen ...



And lastly some beautiful paper bits from around the traps.

What an original idea to string those beautiful hearts across your kitchen window - I bet they make your heart sing when you come out in the morning.

Doing the Tango in Argentina sounds divine, but only with a gorgeous boy, of course.

Those hearts are ever so love-ly!

I guess it's true that all you need is love... :) A good reminder of the things we dream of, doesn't hurt either. From time to time, that is.

Best wishes!
