Yay for Spring!

blueskybookplates

Well it’s officially Spring hooray! The last couple of days have been gorgeous weather. Warm enough to sit out and enjoy. I love this time of year, it’s so inspiring for me with all the colour, the blue skies and planting of new flowers.

This year we are planting fruit and veggies, I will take some pics to show you later on. We now have raspberries planted and will have runner beans and salad leaves going in next month along with wildflowers and sweet peas. Very exciting! Monday I sowed lot’s of marigold and cosmos seeds that I had collected from last years plants so I can’t wait to see them come up.

With all this in mind I just had to come up with a Spring inspired collection of bookplates. These are my fav! So colourful, you can find them in the shop now: http://www.etsy.com/listing/95622701/spring-art-bookplates-set-pack-of-12

And in other news I will be at St Johns Church Hall, Cauldwell Hall road, Ipswich (UK) tomorrow night 22nd March from 7-9pm for a Ladies Pamper and Craft evening. There will be various stalls along with mine and the opportunity for some pampering. The evening is being hosted to raise money for Samaritan’s Purse, admission is £4 inc. glass of wine and nibbles, tickets are available from Kathy Dines: 07980705309

I hope you’ll come and join us if you are in the area!

Blessings
