Grateful for pops of colour.

My garden is little and unorganized but I love it. Especially in Spring. Almost daily new little pops of colour arrive.


The colour is so welcome with the surrounding browns drained of their richness. I’m so grateful for the smiles the flowers bring me as I leave and return home.

What have you been grateful for this week?

Colline recently has been grateful for results.

Just Breathe and Be Thankful is showing how feet have brought smiles and gratitude.

Last week my ‘grateful for..’ post was part of my new Patchwork of Hygge. Each month I will be journalling about what has been a hygge moment and why I’m grateful for it.

Have a wonderful week. Enjoy the little things!

Grateful for a small gift.

20170322_153914I was enjoying a virtual visit to Walt Disney World via my friend’s tales on social media when I asked if she stopped by the Canada pavilion in EPCOT. I saw earlier this year that they were sharing this button with guests. I knew I’d be upset if I missed out on the button as a souvenir.

Fast forward a few days later … I received a mystery message saying “check your mailbox”.

😀 I was thrilled that she thought to share this with me. Two of my favourite things on one button. Canada and Disney ❤

This week I am grateful for an unexpected gift.

What are you grateful for?


“As the years pass, I am coming more and more to understand that it is the common, everyday blessings of our common everyday lives for which we should be particularly grateful. They are the things that fill our lives with comfort and our hearts with gladness — just the pure air to breathe and the strength to breath it; just warmth and shelter and home folks; just plain food that gives us strength; the bright sunshine on a cold day; and a cool breeze when the day is warm.”
Laura Ingalls Wilder, Writings to Young Women from Laura Ingalls Wilder: On Wisdom and Virtues

Grateful for fluffy snow

Well, Mr.Winter decided to give us all of our snow for this season in the span of two days. This week I’m very grateful that it was cold those two days.

I’m grateful for the low temperature because it makes soft, light, fluffy snow. We received about 40cm of snow in that 48 hours. Sunday we could see the crocus’ blooming…. Wednesday the snow was piled waist high on top of those wee confused flowers.

Fluffy snow is so much easier on the back and shoulders for that I am grateful.

Grateful for colourful blanket


I am making a blanket for a client this week. It’s a bright, cheery happy blanket. I love working with this yarn so much that I think I’ll have to make a blanket for myself after I finish hers.

The colours and the soft texture have brightened a long and almost gloomy week.


This week I’m grateful for bright yarn and how it has distracted me from the other ‘stuff’ this week.


This yarn just felt like I was finding Easter eggs! It reminds me of the soon to come spring flowers!
