After the rain

After returning from holidays we were amazed at how our little garden. It was so pretty,everything was fresh looking.  We had had so much rain which is unusual for this time of year and Spring too.
So I'd like to share a few photo's with you. Hope you enjoy them

 The hollyhocks are getting so big and just about ready to bloom. They last most of the year so I am quite excited about them.

 I just so love Margarite Daisies, this one is called Red Baron and is beautiful don't you think ?

I hope you enjoyed my garden pretties. Have a nice day wherever you are in the World

Love to you all. I so like visiting you and will try to catch up with as many of your lovely blogs as I can in the next week or 2. Until then xx jeanetteann

Catching up

As I explained in my last post,I deleted by accident posts from the last year and a half :(
Sooo here are a few pretties from past posts

My passion for pretty china
My garden
sewing and embroidery and more 

A lot of catching up to do in the next few weeks so until next time toodles

No good crying over spilt milk

I am so sad, I was tidying up my blog and in my foggy jet lagged state (after our long flight from Europe) I deleted all my posts for the last 11/2 years uggggh sooooooo annoyed with myself.

Oh well serves me right for trying to be too perfect.

Well onwards and upwards right. Positive thinking is called for and move on without regret. No good crying over what I can't change.

Coming back from our holidays has put me in a restless mood. What do I get my teeth/hands into now. More little smocked dresses to replenish my stock, my wool stash to make yet another scarf/jumper that I don't need, or something totally different.

Maybe as we have had ooodles of rain and the garden is in beautiful bloom a visit to the garden centre would be nice,and I haven't been trawling the thrift shops for yonks.

So much going through my head and yet jet lag still holds me back.

I think a drive in the countryside would be a good way to clear my head and start fresh.

Spring is around the corner and that's a good thing to motivate.

A lot of posts to catch up on again and linky parties and blogs to visit. 

Until next time xx jeanetteann

New gorgeous thrifty find and marmalade

I was so thrilled to find this pretty 36 piece dinner set
I couldn't believe the price when I saw it $15 the whole set 

I am sure it has never been used it's so perfect.

It is so lovely for a Spring lunch in the garden, although
I won't be able to wait that long before using it. 

In my last post I talked about the fruit  I cooked ready to turn into marmalade
Well it's all done.
I love the look of freshly made preserves in the kitchen.

I'm visiting some nice linky parties this week
The links are on my side bar.
Happy week

Another productive day

I have such a lot of energy at the moment.
It must be the extra exercise I'm doing. (Zumba)
I just love it. I'm bidding on a DVD on Ebay, so that I can do it at home instead of 
going out to a class at night. I'm not fond of going out at night,especially in Winter.

I also am in love with Isagenix too
A wonderful product to give your body all the goodness it needs and rid it of any toxins.

Annnnnnyways back to my original post :)
I have been baking all day today.
Whole orange and chocolate cake
Boiled fruit cakes
and coconut biscuits. 
I've also peeled and deseeded a pile of mandarines,oranges and lemons
Cut them up,shredded the peel
and they are cooking away ready to be turned into marmade.

I thought yesterday was a productive day getting the veggie garden prepared and planted
with Winter veggies,but today I am really pleased with myself the amount I have achieved
Now rest time,if that's possible for me ;) I can't sit still for too long,unless I'm blogging, sewing or writing. 

Broccoli starting to flower.

What are you cooking up today?

I'm going to visit some linky parties now
