Friday Five



Happy Friday! Hope you had a good week!  i'm joining Amy at Love Made My Home for herFive on Friday linkup and today is a special one for the link up is now one year old! Congrats Amy for all your hard work to make this possible for us!

So here are five things I've been doing this week.

1. I have been blessed to have my dear friend Shazy who is an expert quilter, help me learn some of the basics with this gorgeous mini quilt with wool appliqué by Buttermilk Basin.


I've also been thinking 'spring' and came across these cross stitch pieces to list on my Etsy. You can find it on my sidebar.


A new addition in our house was this cute gift. Ollie the owl landed on the stairs but he is really a doorstop.

Sharing my new hallway lights.  If you've followed my blog, you'll know I love stars and we found these amazing Moravian star pendant shades.


I love all the angles!


Lastly we have been enjoying half term and took a trip to an Open Farm.  Here was one of the residents!

    Foi uma semana de belos trabalhos - amei a delicadeza dos bordados em ponto cruz.
    A corujinha na escada está linda e o lustre, que efeito que dá - apaixonei!
