I guess I'm a little outnumbered here. Three to one. But I really do love it. And the boys don't seem to object to my girly touches around the house! Toby said "I LOVE those pink flowers! They're BEEYouutiful!". Maybe, just maybe, one day he'll remember that girls like flowers, and some lovely lady will be thanking me :) wow. So weird to think about that!
I couldn't resist these lovely fluffy carnations! Why is it that carnations are such an underrated flower? Is it because they're not pricey? I think they're quite delightful...and they last forever! Much longer than most cut flowers.
This little crystal salt cellar is something my granny gave me the last time I was at her house in Ireland (2 years ago). She really wanted me to have something that was special out of her dining hutch :) I love it so much!
I made these little bird's nest cookies last night for my little nephew's baby shower. I think they turned out quite well for the 10 minutes (literally) it took to make them. I got the recipe here (and then added Cadbury mini eggs while they were still warm).
This is my little Finn, smiling up at me as I'm typing. He's such a cheerful little man, with a very drooly chin and all :)
In a house full of boys, this is the type of thing you find in your white-with-pink-flowers living room...a fort!
And inside the fort....one small boy...and one "big strong grown-up boy" (Toby's words).
