little lovelies.

every week, i try and share a little list of lovely things that have happened throughout the week in my neck of the woods, to try and keep myself looking on the bright side of things.

belated christmas gifts.

in the past week, i've received not one but two belated christmas gifts!
the above was from bb. he was SO prepared, researching and purchasing this gift for me, several weeks before christmas. the spindle is handmade though, and made to order, so it didn't quite make it in time... i still appreciate it though, and probably more so now, as i ALMOST have the mental space to take on something new, like spinning!
the second gift, was a beautiful necklace, made of rope, in the most beautiful mint green.
it's so lovely and i feel so spoilt this week!

i found a discounted bag of tomatoes in the green grocer earlier in the week...

and on thursday night, they were chopped up and went into the oven, becoming the most delicious pasta sauce.
making something so delicious from such simple ingredients is always so nice.

farm time is something that will always put a smile on my face.

hanging out with my mum, this gal, and the rest of the animals is always such a treasure. i didn't even cop too many headbutts this visit!

earlier in the week, i whipped up 2 and a half dozen bread rolls for the bbq i have planned tomorrow...

they've been hiding in the freezer ever since. but i love the fact that i made them myself, and that bb and i haven't bought any bread all year so far!

and finally...

how could that video not put a smile on your face?

i'm not sure how long the pianos are around for, but i'd love to go into the city and have a play!

what's made you smile this week? are you a spinner? do you bake bread?

Lots of happy, happy in your post. I used to spin a little but actually sold my wheel just last week. Lack of time to spin and I couldn't stand to see the wheel just sitting there. I did bake a really good rhubarb cake yesterday. Yum!
