Little Leafy Wreaths!

good morning...
on this stormy winter's morning.

actually i just love moody weather
when the skies are grey and rain is pending
and the wind is starting to whip up
and even the birds stop chirping!

so dramatic.

the days i find hard to get through
are the ones that i call 'white days'...
still and foggy
silent and cold.

you know what else i hate?

finding out that the finale of the season of
'desperate housewives'
was put on tv an hour earlier..

it normally starts at 9.30 pm..which
i dutifully turned to
and found to my distress
that i
was the 'desperate housewife' who was an hour late!!!

and it was very nearly all over
i only caught the last ten minutes.

now i'm going to have to spend another hour i haven't put aside
and watch it knowing the ending...grrrrrrowl!

on a lighter note...

another 'england swings' got constructed yesterday,

featuring little leafy wreaths....



polka dots!


red buttons...

is that too much??

one more to go!

have a crazy good weekend...
i hope you catch your favourite tv shows!

what tv shows can't you do without?
{in other words are you a bit desperate like me..or not as the case may be!}

naturally Carol xox

p.s..these three are available on


  1. Oh dear...sorry I had to have a chuckle at you missing your family are die hard DH fans and I can just imagine what would be happening in their household had they missed the finale...too funny.
    I've been getting into a bit of tv lately, or should I say it's been the background noise while I crochet and chat to hubby at night.
    Have a fab weekend Carol.


  2. oh Carol...I love the bright and cheery.

  3. Loving those cushions Carol.

  4. I love the middle one - so fresh. x

  5. Pretty! Just love the red flowers...
    I'm a Grey's Anatomy fan!

  6. Lovely cushion designs, bobbles and dots thats not to much they work well together.
    Ooh my fave, tv show. Well maybe it sounds boring but i like Country file just because its all outdoors showing lots of wildlife and everything else going on in the countryside.
    best wishes Julie.C

  7. The prints look amazing! The combination is fabulous! Enjoy the wonderful weekend, Kellie xx

  8. Hi Carol! What a great cushion! I love those fabrics and your details!
    I'm missing Grey's Anatomy...I don't know if they continue it here...
    Have a lovely time!

  9. Such pretty cushions, Carol! We don't have a T.V. (going on 9 years now), so I don't even know what's on. :0
    Hope you have a lovely weekend!

  10. "White days" - I like it! Not them, but your description!

    I watched DH just now... I can't BELIEVE they are breaking up!!!!! x

  11. I'm not looking forward to Downton Abbey finishing this week, that's for sure!

    I've also taken heed of your comment that I don't have a followers widget, so I've added one. Love a bit of blogging advice, thanks Carol! x

  12. Oh bugger about the Housewives Carol! I thought that was a bit cheeky of channel 7 to change the time slot for the finale too. Hope you get to see it when they re-run it or online maybe.
    What a fabulous set of England Swings... I can't get enough of these glorious colours. Beautiful!

  13. Love the red buttons, dots and fringe bobbles!


i am delighted that you care enough to comment..i love to read each one of them..thank you!
