Spring (in my Kitchen)


Right now the feeling that Winter will never end is hard to shake. I can see evidence of the coming season around me in buds and shoots but it isn’t happening quickly enough for me. Perhaps it’s the half-hearted Autumn or the kind-of-meh Winter or maybe it’s just because the rush of Spring is so exciting. Whatever it is, I’m starting Spring in my kitchen right now.


A very sunny gift arrived this week in the form of some tea towels and hand towels. Aren’t they just yummy? Seeing as I have a reputation for having cool tea towels I figure these are a must.


Another new addition is a thrifted water jug. Far more appropriate for supper time than the old Pimms jug I had been using.


Last night I dusted down the sewing machine to finally make a new baby gift for a baby who is nearly one (take note friends – the gifts will come eventually). I feel such hope and joy when I sew. Coming back to it has taken me so long but I feel that the machine will be busy this Spring.


So Spring may arriving slowly but the promise of it is in the air and that’s enough for now.

    Ah, the promise of spring, it must be in the air. I just blogged the same thing myself. There’s nothing like it to cheer you up. Right now I can hear the birds singing and I haven’t heard that for a while. The days are getting longer too. Happy times ahead I think.

      It’s funny to see all of the Southern Hemisphere bloggers yearning for Autumn as we’re waiting for the Spring.

    Wow; I am quite in love with those tea towels! So lovely now the snow has gone to at least feel the possibility of spring.

      They are so cute, aren’t they? They came from M&S but not showing online at all now :(
