The Seaside

The British seaside makes me happy.

With all the fun of the fair, candy floss, ice creams and fish and chips.

Sandcastles, paddling, rock pooling and sitting huddled under towels.

Walking the dog on the beach, collecting shells.....

What makes you happy?

Hydrangeas Make Me Happy

I'm still on a bit of a floral theme and at the moment it's
my Hydrangeas that are making me happy.
So gorgeous!
But what is actually making me really, really happy about them is
that I've just discovered that it is really easy to dry them.

How happy will I be in deepest winter when I have a vase
of glamourous mophead hydrangeas to remind me of warmer times.
You'll find the instructions here - How To Dry Hydrangea Flowers
Do you think they would make you happy?

Flowers Shop Stories

I love Sally Page's books.
How can anyone fail to be cheered by those glorious floral photographs.
You can find out more at her website and better still see loads of Sally's photographs
on her blog Flower Shop Stories.
Take a look I'm sure the photographs will make you happy too.

It's Lovely Weather for Ducks

Another grey rainy day who could believe it is August?
Not that I mind, I'm one of those lucky people who actually like the rain.
Yes that's right folk, rain makes me happy!
The ducks seem quite happy too.

This weekend - Pies & Dahlias make me happy

The apple & blackberry pie was yummy and yes it made me very happy
and I have enough blackberries left to make another pie which should keep
the whole family happy.
This little dahlia opened her petals this weekend,
she is so pretty,
enough to make anyone happy especially if you've grown her from seed.
So what made you happy this weekend?

Sundays make me happy.
Time to relax, read the papers, listen to the radio, use vintage china.
Family time.
What makes you happy about Sunday?
