Spring breezes through the house

daffodilsCome into my house spring.
You are very welcome to shine some sunlight into cobwebbed corners and chase out the dust bunnies lurking under the sofa.
I'm enticing spring into the house with trumpeting daffodils in every room.
Such an inexpensive flower.
Dotted around the garden too and in containers.
Yellow everywhere.
spring window A new calendar for Little Bird.
To learn the seasons and the weather.
We try and remember to change this every day.
I love these bright pops around the house.

I have been baking a lot again.
Perhaps spurred on by Easter cakes and chocolate chicks.
Chocolate speckles and vanilla. 
My simple sponge where I weigh 3 eggs and match the sugar, self-raising flour and butter.
Works well every time.
speckled cake Time to dust all the decorative bits and bobs.
Change things around and start some Spring decorating.
Polka dots and flowers.
I feel a charity shop trip a coming for some vintage crockery.
Kellogg's Jug Boots at the ready to quickly get into the garden.
Everyday a new bloom, new shoots and surprises.
A breezy week so far, nicely drying all the washing.
That's what I like, saving money - no tumble drier days.
Wellington boots More yellow. Mustard yellow is allowed too.
A new book for a new interest of mine, learning about church architecture.
So many beautiful churches.
Curious nooks and crannies.
I love a bit of history I do and identifying things appeals to my inner geek.
It's by Matthew Rice who is Emma Bridgewater's hubby and does a lot of the designs for the mugs and other lovely things.
yellow lantern Rices Church book The bunnies are starting to appear.
The owl doesn't look pleased about this.
Easter excitement already in this house.
I'm on the look out for decorative eggs to hang from the blossom trees in my garden.
Must order a vintage egg mould too so I can make my own choccy eggs this year. 
I like a challenge, can't be too difficult can it? 
Are you getting giddy over Spring too?

Love spring. Daffy's are my favourite flowers. Really love the wooden calendar as well! They'd all sold out by the time I went to get one :(

I do love spring, especially the daffodils but the early sunshine doesn't have show all the dust off!

We've had such a miserable winter (and looking out the window here, it's raining again -__-) but what a lovely post to brighten up the day!
