4/52 Year of Happy

Four things that have made me smile this week:

1. Picking the first vase of dahlias for the year. Gorgeous.
2. Bringing out an old project to work on and rekindling my enthusiasm for it.
3. Finding a new magazine to read, and having a spare hour to enjoy it, out in the sun, feet up.
4. Purple capsicums getting big and ripening, hidden behind a wall of green. Yum.

Have you found something that made you smile this week?

Joining in with Jen at little birdie and her 52 weeks of happiness.


  1. Lovely doilie-pattern you are working on.

  2. Your Happies have me yearning for summer here on the wintery side of the world! Oh how I would love to be sitting in a sunny spot in the garden, among my own dahlias, with a cup of tea and a book, or maybe my crochet... Oh well, the snow here has at least thawed now, and the snowdrops are beginning to peek through the hard ground. Not too long now...

    of course, I thought that was an eggplant, never seen purple capsicums before! can imagine how lovely it'll look in salad:)
