It was a sunny day in March...

Hello my darlings!
How are you all? I hope great! Here in the South east has been gorgeous these last few days.
I spent most of yesterday in the garden, potting out primroses, tet e tete daffodils, and all of the lovely bulbs, roots and seeds I was telling you about here.

I have great plans for our garden. It's so very over grown every where, has been let go for years and years.
Now it's time to bring it back to life! Yesterday I started to clear our the compost area, which was awful! Full of all sorts of rubbish that people have just left there and through in from the road. I even found bits of old carpet, a smashed window and an exhaust! How is that possible?!
Also we are planning to build a fence so that our little doggy won't escape into the woods or the road. We would really like to make a natural coppice fence but my expert Mr Jason is telling e that there aren't quite enough hazel trees to do that right now, so we might have to content ourselves with a 'normal' fence…what a shame.

Yesterday I also received the most lovely surprise, a letter from my dear old friend Martina.
She sent a lovely letter with Woman's Day wishes, a twig of Acacia dealbata (the traditional Italian Woman's Day Flower) and a homemade biscuit!!!

So sweet!
I was the perfect day…!

I also up in the moon for the latest and most beautiful found from the local charity shop,
this gorgeous wooden box with KEY! Yes! I'm madly in love with keys, as you know.

And I've been wanting a box to put my diaries in since I was a little girl! Yes, another dreams comes a reality.

I cannot believe how organised I'm becoming. I already have all of the birthday presents sorted for the next few months! How cool is that? I usually get really stressed out with presents. Getting the right thing is not always easy and I also have to make sure I have the gift with plenty of time so I can post it to my family and friends abroad.

I'm very impressed with myself. Becoming more organised it was one of my new years resolutions, and I was really hoping I would stick to it.

One of the gifts I was so very pleased about was this little cutie.
I embroidered this baby bib for my best friend Elena's baby, Angelo.

I really like to make gifts, handmade gifts are certainly the best ones.

I've been working on some new mini totes for my spring summer collection and I'm hoping to share them with you very soon… I'm just so thrilled with them!

In the meantime, is got really damp and cold, and I'm going to spend the rest of the evening by the fire with Twist, a warming mulled berry punch and some pancakes for my tea.

with love
