Happiness


Felt

Today I am cutting and stitching felt.  Will post the finished creation later.  Hope you are having a great day.  It’s windy and sunny here.  My perfect type of weather.


Little Coppice

Autumn Trees and a Golf Course

Have you ever found a little bit of solitude unexpectedly?  I went for a walk in the suburb that I live in and found a treat!  You can walk through the local golf course grounds as there is a public footpath.  In the six years I have live here I never knew […]


Two Cushions

Making Cushions (or Pillows)

Today I have made some cushions to sell.  What a great way to use leftover fabric and make it in to something really worthwhile.  I don’t know if everyone is the same when they are happy with a creation but I would love to keep them.  Oh, and if you […]


Tracy Cup and Bowl

Tracy without the E

Growing up my mum was very enthusiastic about my name.  It was her second choice to Victoria and after seeing a James Bond film (the one where Bond marries) she decided, along with my dad, to call me Tracy.  She always bought me some kind of present, Christmas or birthdays, […]


Tea at Murgatroyds

One of my favourite fish and chip places is Murgatroyds in Yeadon, Leeds. I love the vintage/retro interior mixed with the Tiffany style lamps. It really is quite unique and the service is great.

Yorkshire Peonies.

My lovely man bought me some stunning Peonies from our local farm shop Keelham Farm.  I have not had Peonies before and they are so beautiful.  A comment around the house is ‘can they get any bigger?!’ It remains to be seen!  I really loved the vintage look of this photo […]


Coloured Masking Tape – Happy!

I recently bought some lovely coloured masking tape made from Washi paper from the guys at Present & Correct. Oh the uses that I could have with it! Resisting the urge to put it everywhere in the office I restricted myself to a couple of Nutella jars that are waiting […]


The Olive Tree

I recently had a birthday and felt so blessed to be taken to Rudding Park in Harrogate for a birthday breakfast.  This is a super-quick photo that I took of an olive tree that is growing in the conservatory there.  Even though it is huge it’s not too overpowering.  A […]


A much needed weekend away!

My wonderful husband and I have just returned from a long weekend at Centre Parcs. Oh, it was awesome and I thoroughly enjoyed myself! Robin took numerous photos of just about everything and we came back very refreshed! I don’t think I have ever seen so many ducks though! And […]
