Goodness me...

"The Girl Who Loves Spring" by Paola Zakimi

I can't believe it's been such a long time between posts and that spring is already here! It's just my favourite time of the year. I love that the sun is warm, that there is colour in the garden and that the smell of freesias fills the air. 

I am looking forward to catching up with you all to see what you have been up to and getting back to regular posting. Thanks for all your sweet comments on my last post, I really appreciated them all.

May your weekend be wonderful and see you next week when I'll be taking a look at all things yellow,
Stephie x


  1. Hello Stephie:
    What a delightful Zakimi drawing. Do you think that she might also be a girl who loves autumn for, whilst we continue to enjoy wonderfully warm days, there is already here a sense that summer is over?

  2. Welcome back! Hope you had a nice break.


  3. Hi Stephie !!! Greetings from New England !!! Can't believe that it's spring in your area, here is fall ;o))) How was your little break ? Ready for new adventures ? Have a great weekend, xo, Britta

  4. Hello,Stephie dear. Glad to see you back. I love the illustration. I think she does some fab little dolls too? Do you have Tetly where you are? xxx

  9. Yaay, you're back! I've missed you! It's Autumn here in the UK now and the leaves are all changing. It's also started to get a bit cooler. Spring is my favourite time of year too, I especially love the cherry blossoms. I hope you've had a great break. Em xxx

  11. Welcome back, I hope you had a restful time off! I'm looking forward to reading your lovely posts again!

  12. I love the beginning of spring! Fall has just started here. The cooler weather will be a nice change. Enjoy your spring! xo

  13. Hello everyone! So good to hear from you all. I certainly am enjoying the beautiful spring weather. It's funny to think though that so many of you are looking forward to cool weather when I am so over it!

    Jane and Lance, I think she could be an autumn girl also.
    Tracy, now that you mention it, she did used to make dolls. On the tea front, I would have to check whether we still have Tetley tea here in Australia. I am fond of Lan Choo myself and so don't really take much notice of what else is on the shelf!

    Spring hugs to all of you - it's good to be back, Stephie x
