The start of summer? & hint of a makeover ;)


Good afternoon from Sunny Suffolk :)

Hurrah the weather has taken a turn for the better :)

Today's post is rambling & disjointed - lots of little things to share with you all :)

First of all - the summerhouse. Little son & I have been painting inside today - I did the edges & he did the filling in bits - I think he really enjoyed it (trust me it looked much better after the 2nd coat);


More photos to follow another day when its more finished.

I made some bunting at the end of last week - lots of it is destined for the summerhouse to brighten it up and this length was a request from my eldest niece;



Sometime last week I received the most gorgeous smelling parcel - this time not a swap but an order from a lovely little company I have discovered - 4kandles. They do a gorgeous range of tarts that you put into burners - instead of the huge ones that are hard to break up these come as 4 smaller flower shaped pieces in a pack.  There is a huge range of scents and you can mix & match them together. Our favourite here is the Red Hot Cinnamon mixed with Golden Delicious - we've nicknamed this mix - Mom's Apple Pie :)

I ordered a couple of things - this pretty little cupcake tea-light holder for me;




and this scrummy campervan burner & a selection of melts for my next giveaway - haven't quite decided when that will be - sometime soon - depends when I can find the other items I want to include ;)


Last but not least - I can't believe its June already - where is the year going to? Now June means only one thing - the bloggy meet in Southwold - Sunday June 27th in the afternoon?? I know we've got quite a few interested people - are there anymore?

Love the bunting! I can tell I am going to be VERY envious of the summerhouse! I keep trying to persuade my other half that we should turn the garage into a crafting room for yours truly but he's not playing ;)
