Holding On to My Hat...

Because today is one heck of a Spring day. That sun is shining Australian bright.

Also, flutterbies in the air...



...flowers in the hair...



...and bellies filled with afternoon treats...



...marks this Spring Festival day.

Which also means that it’s school holidays again.

(And that’s really why I’m holding on to my hat).

PS. The girls over at A Spoonful of Sugar REALLY know how to do this cupcake stuff – and not like my version which involves a chewy felt flower (niiice) and a stingy half jelly bean (desperate attempt to minimise fallout from soaring sugar intake), with the finishing touches thrown together at traffic lights.

I think the cupcakes look yummy and really cute with those felt flowers, Tania :-) Have a good holiday!

I am slightly envious of your beautiful spring sunshine. We are just entering first phase autumn here, which is pants.

I like the crunchy leaves thing and we are going to burn technicolour pine cones this weekend (always a thrilling and surreal experience!)BUT I would so love some more sun shine before the scary weather comes.

Forgot to say, I will be sending some laminated leaves your way if that's OK....

Felt was a most inspired idea - such bright colours and texture. Very envious of your school hols - we still have a week to go - and we haven't had much of a taste of the spring weather yet:(

Mmmm jellybean felt my fave! LOL Great pictorial of Spring! Love it. and I think the present quilt square 3cm in front of eyes option is perfectly acceptable. :)
