  1. Love your little book - very pretty and full of lots of details! Thank you for sharing x

  2. Thats so lovely. The best thing about Spring is suddenly wanting to be out in the garden and prettying it up again. love that the sun is out but it's not too hot.

  3. I love your mini book my favourite bit about spring is getting home earlier enough from work to allow time to sit in the garden pondering on what I can make in my craft room that evening if time and family allow. x

  4. Tracey love your spring mini book. My favourite thing about Spring time is seeing all the daffs and tulips coming out in the garden, you can't beat spring flowers to give you a boost at the thought of lighter nights and better weather on route.
    Thanks for sharing, Erika.

  5. Such a pretty little mini book decorated so delicately

  6. Tracy it's so pretty I will come back and look again as it is just filled with gorgeousness thank you.

  7. What a beautiful book - I love the nostalgia of the cigarette cards with the butterflies.

  8. That little book is gorgeous. My favourite springtime activity has to be crafting in natural light for longer as the days lengthen

  9. My favourite springtime activity is planning. I love planning what we are going to do for the next six months or so, when we have the promise of better weather and lighter nights stretching out before us. So I'll be planning what to do in the garden, what walks we are going on, what outdoor gigs we will be going to, maybe some trips to the Lakes....we might not get it all done but I'll have fun planning it anyway.

    Great book, love the butterflies.

  10. I love your little book it is just so full of prettiness! I love to watch the garden coming to life - the plants and the birds and I like the way the house feels after a good spring clean, not the the actual cleaning bit you understand!

  11. wow, your creations are lovely .... one of my favourite springtime activities has to be walking the dogs in the woods and watching the beautiful bluebells, primroses and wood anenomes spring into life.

  12. Gorgeous little book love the butterflies :) x

  13. Very very pretty mini-book - I especially love all the different flower treatments.

    My fave springtime thing is watching cherry-blossom fall like pink snow - one day I'd like to watch it in Japan!

  14. I am ashamed(not) to sy my activity is pinching my kids Ester egg stash. I am doing them a favour and rotting my teeth instead! The book is stunning btw!x

  15. You have a beautiful blog. It got me thinking about spring and I love that it is the season of new life, hope and renewal. Having had a terrible winter for personal reasons, feeling the sunshine and seeing plants springing into life (and even hearing the local cats starting their mating season!) reminds me that however dark and gloomy the winter appears to be spring heralds the start of new life again. Thanks for sharing your work - it is lovely.

  16. Such a gorgeous project!! My favourite Spring activity is getting the garden sorted out!

  17. that's really pretty.
    I love seeing the garden come to life in Spring, and planting new plants. But I'm not so keen on the spring cleaning !

  18. Gorgeous work. My favourite spring activity is being out in a garden, either gardening or eating or just looking.
