The lovely Beth from Goat In A Coat has kindly passed on a Tree of Happiness award to me. Do take a look at her terrific blog; especially the amazing octopus cake that she made recently!

Accepting the award involves listing six things that make you happy and passing the honour on to six other bloggers. So here goes ....

Six things that make me happy:
  1. my lively, loud, funny little boys

  2. starting and ending a sewing project - and all the steps in between

  3. spending time with my family and friends

  4. the extraordinary colours I see from my very ordinary study window

  5. learning

  6. a good night's sleep!

If these lovely girls partake in such things and have the time/inclination to play, I would like bestow the Tree of Happiness upon their fab blogs ... Pippijoe, Leni & Rose, Project Incomplete, Moiface-Dangerart, House & Baby and Sadie and Lance.


  1. Well done on the award! I always look at your photos from your desk - amazing!

  2. That's funny....we must have both posted at about the same time!

  3. Thanks for the award! I will think of some answers and try to forward the honor on!

  4. Phew... and I'll now add a seventh:
    - completing a list of 6 things that make me happy
