This week has been a great learning curve for me at work and making further links with the Surgeons and Gastroenterologists that I work with. Amazing how my Career as a Dietitian which started over 20 years ago has almost come full circle to working with surgeons and gastroenterologists again. I'm loving getting back into the nitty gritty of how influential my role is in working side by side with these other specialists. Sorry...I get a bit passionate about my profession...ok on with my weekly happy little things.
I was a little excited when I found 2 vintage sheets for a pound each in a charity shop. I am determined to make us a patchwork duvet cover this Spring time and these two beauties will be most definitely be added to my stash and become part of the patchwork.
Nothing more comforting than homemade spicy carrot and lentil soup (quick no fuss recipe found here)and some yummy bread on a cold Sunday lunch time.
On Wednesday I came home to a big fat parcel waiting for me and was over the moon when I received this gorgeous Eames mid-century fabric cushion made by Ellie from Jelly Jam. She generously let me have a browse around her blog and Etsy shop and I could not have been more excited when I spotted her gorgeous taste in vintage fabrics...oh and be still my beating Ray Eames fabric heart! So here she is, this little beauty which no one was allowed to touch or cuddle till I had admired and soaked these beautiful patterns in :o)
Is it not a beauty?
Oh I just LOVE it so very much thank you Ellie. Not only did I get this stunning cushion, but Ellie also included a lavender filled fabric heart which is scenting my home with beautiful romantic lavender. I felt rather overwhelmed and grateful for such a generous blogging community. I must also say a HUGE thank you to the gorgeous Ada of Vintage Sheet Addict fame who organised and match made Ellie and I for this blog swap. A really uplifting moment in my week! Thank you x
ps. look how pretty it looks with my chevron crochet blanket
In return, I crocheted some flower embellished fingerless gloves for Ellie in her favourite colour turquoise.
If you want to see her wearing them take a look at her post here
They were an absolute pleasure to make from Millamia Swedish yarn and I am so pleased she is happy with them. Yay, I like a win win situation!
Last but not least my weekly £1 bunch of daffodils split between upstairs and downstairs. My upstairs flowers were popped into this pale blue Meakin milk jug (20p in a junk yard sale) to provide first thing in the morning bathroom delight.
I bid you farewell fellow bloggers,thanks for visiting
Have a good one
