Smell the flowers...





















Wow, i can hardly beleive i am giving time to post a message in my blog. As i mentioned in a previous post, i am a very lazy and poor blogger. Although i wish i was as good as all those great blogs i love to visit. I do hope that once i move to my future house ( one day ) i will have my own little studio, i will be spending more time creating and filling my etsy shop and maybe take more time to blog. Blogging is a fun thing to do of course. I just feel sometimes i don't have much to say. Ok, enough justification for my laziness, i came here specifically to show you that pillow i made for my hubby. I am not entirely satisfied with the ended result, but hubby seemed quite pleased. And he even liked the discloths ! He offered me the crochet one my friend did for him ( I think he found it a little bit too girly with the frill border ) and i must admit it really washes the dishes well. The cloth is thick, spongy and soft. I think i am hooked, i will have to knit more for myself. The peonies are just barely starting to flower and i beleive they will be gorgeous ! I love peonies ! I have many plants troughtout my flower beds. Yesterday, the sky was clouding over and i could hear the thunder roar. A storm was building up. I ran to the chicken coop to get them inside and i almost stopped as i passed by the peonies. The smell was so intoxicatingly intense. I ran back inside, grabbed the scissors, ran back outside to try and cut a few flowers before the storm breaks out.I made a lovely bouquet to put on the kitchen table. Oh, how wonderfully sweet is the smell of peonies. I wish they would flower all summer long...Well, i wish summer would last longer too...Take the time to smell the flowers...

Donc pour les instructions du tag, tu as juste à faire copier coller du tag de mon blog, et ensuite changer mes réponses pour les tiennes ( Anne t'expliquera sinon). C'est tout! xx
