How beautiful is this?! Such a gorgeous thing to have, brighten up any dull, grey day. Looks like a fairytale journey to grandma's house. Made by loja de estar, hop over and have a look at the other beautiful things. I think I would have this on a wall or on top of the sideboard .... stunning.
I am also really liking this print by charmaineoliver over on Etsy. It has an ethereal feel about it. Almost like the Carnival has closed and the wildlife are allowed to play.
And I would just love this necklace, isn't it cute? Made by homako over on Etsy. Yes Please!!
So, Happy Monday... hope you are all feeling refreshed and ready for a good week. Let's ignore the weather and think happy colourful thoughts!
I have been following this lovely blog by Emma Lamb for nearly a year now. Each Monday Emma does a post called 'Colour your Monday Happy, in which she will have a colour theme and showcases lovely photographs which people have uploaded onto her flickr pool all colours in.
Yesterday Emma posted her colour theme as warming autumnal yellows and oranges....
And to my surprise I saw this:
I took this photograph in the Temperate Biome at the Eden Project in Cornwall whilst we were on holiday earlier this year. Such a long time ago!
Bank Holiday Monday.... always the same dilema, is gonna be rainy or dry?
We decided on Leigh woods this morning... always good rain or shine. Rufus' new love is his bike. He has just discovered how to ride it and has such a passion for it he would ride it all day long.
I knew the bluebells would be coming into flower round about now, so when we turned the corner into the drive... wow, a carpet of blue....

Not fully in flower yet, but still a sight to be seen.
I love the woods, it is a special place for us as a family... it always grounds us, brings us back to nature, 're-boots' our souls, puts life into perspective.
We were so excited to get out of the car, wellies on, on bikes and into the bluebells. The boys were immediately in charge, choosing which mountain bike track to lead us down. I love this, they take us to parts of the woods I have never been too, always an adventure.

Leigh Woods has a real mix of trees, Oak, Yew, Holly, Sycamore but mainly Beech, which allows the bluebells to thrive beneath the new canopy of papery leaves.
The woods were so green and the bluebells so blue, it was dazzling yet almost blurring... quite hard to discribe.. my mind was being gently fuzzed with the beauty of it all.
We all had a wonderful time, boys were ravenous when we arrived home for lunch...always a good sign!
