Being a child of Spring, to celebrate this beautiful season here on this blog is a must… and such a pleasure! Sooooo…. here’s a few things that filled my heart with joy the past few days… Enjoy! 🙂

 


 Spring
 Poem by Gerard Manley Hopkins 

Nothing is so beautiful as Spring –
 When weeds, in wheels, shoot long and lovely and lush;
 Thrush’s eggs look little low heavens, and thrush
 Through the echoing timber does so rinse and wring
 The ear, it strikes like lightnings to hear him sing;
 The glassy peartree leaves and blooms, they brush
 The descending blue; that blue is all in a rush
 With richness; the racing lambs too have fair their fling.

What is all this juice and all this joy?
 A strain of the earth’s sweet being in the beginning
 In Eden garden. – Have, get, before it cloy,
 Before it cloud, Christ, lord, and sour with sinning,
 Innocent mind and Mayday in girl and boy,
 Most, O maid’s child, thy choice and worthy the winning.

A Great White Show

We had a big snowstorm here in the heart of Europe a couple of days ago.

It was magnificent!

The snowflakes were so huge, possibly the biggest I have seen. Ever! I’ve read that it had something to do with the air humidity. And what I loved about this nature’s show the most was that I could watch it from behind the window of my warm home office, without even letting my nose out. I really adore the view here.

I snapped a few pictures to share with you…

Enjoy!

Enjoying These Days

crochet

Hi friends!

I am popping by to say hi and share a few bits and pieces from my life.

I am having a lovely time indeed. The recent days have been relaxing and filled with joyful things and activities. Here are a few of them.

I started a few new crochet projects. I love when my table gets covered with happy colors. I will reveal more details about this project soon.

I have been enjoying this calming and colorful view right outside my home office window ever since we moved in our new place. Can’t get enough of it. Pure bliss!

 

crochet owl coaster and red candle

To celebrate Autumn, I have been burning a candle every single day these days.

 

crochet basket weave

And this project. It is currently my side project that I get busy with each time there’s a good movie to be watched. Which, to be frank, is very often these days.

I am looking forward to sharing more details about my projects in the near future.

Wishing you a great week!

With lots of love,
Petra
