Fresh and new

I do love how Spring makes everything fresh and new again. It washes away all the drab colors of winter and makes everything light and colorful. It always amazes me that dead brown looking plants burst from the ground every year with new wonderful green shoots. I often wonder how something so delicate could survive the harsh winter... but I'm glad they do.

This little squirrel looked so lovely sitting on a soft carpet of moss. He was only about 3 feet or so away from us, sitting soaking up the Spring sun. Who can blame him, it did look so soft and comfortable. Although not many flowers are open yet this little pink flower was blooming in the woods where we go walking. All around it was brambles and dormant bushes so it really caught your eye with it's lovely deep pink color. Every time we go walking there is always something new at this time of year. That's what makes our walks so interesting. I have been meaning to show this new magazine ever since I made the Lime Pound cake, as it came from here. It really is full of new ideas and recipes for Spring....... I found a lot of really wonderful recipes that would be perfect for Easter...... or even for later in the year, maybe a birthday party or an afternoon tea. I think it will get a lot of use in the coming months.

Well my soap making is on the back burner for a few days as not all of my order came. I am still waiting on the colorant... pretty important unless you want all white soap! But I won't be sitting idle as I always have a gazillion other things in the works.

Hope you all had a great weekend!

This morning when I opened the kitchen blinds there was a squirrel looking in at me. I grabbed the camera, but he ran away before I could snap a picture.

Are you making cute little creatures this weekend?

That's about the loveliest squirrel I think I've ever seen. Hm .. I think you should make a squirrel for your shop. Or make clothes for that squirrel...might be easier!

Lime pound cake! Yummy, I could have a slice of that right now for sure. Spring is coming slowly here but it's definately fun to see the little creatures come out one by one.

A sad news, at five O'Clock precisely (just for tea time), our Eiffel Tower felt down !!!! Experts said that it was too old and as they were about to repaint the Tower for a for the cost of 4 millions euros. They were supposed to use a special secret color “the Eiffel Tower's Brown” (the same color since 1968) They were supposed to need 25 painters for a surface area of 250.000 m2 (9 842,5197 inch2)...

The good news is that we will make a very big economy with the painting :)

Have a look at the tower for the last time : http://www.tour-eiffel.fr/index.html
