Welcome to the new Toadstool!

Hello everyone! Many apologies for the extremely long absence – who knew moving house would be sooo stressful! Never again!!

However, the new Toadstool is now starting to look a little more like home. Would you like a tour? Okay, lets start from the beginning. As you walk in we have the hallway … here it is looking lovely and ‘new’ … not a lot had moved in at this stage. ( I am totally in love with the stripey carpet!)


Now it has these little treasures in it


Here are the gorgeous windows that I so I haven’t cleaned – for vertically challenged little old me it could be a mammoth task!)


And here we have the corner of the conservatory that I have adopted as my own – yes I know – faery wings! I love anything vaguely faery so when the opportunity came to have my wings sat out I leapt at it.


As you will notice the light in here is perfect for a tiny spottle of crochet … here’s some now! A granny square baby blanket that I am making for a lovely expecting lady – it’s a surprise! Oh and some light reading to go with it.




We were so very lucky and got lots of beautiful gifts when we moved in. My house has been filled with flowers since the day we moved. Thanks everyone – you’re all gorgeous! I love the colour of the soft pink rose – might need to put this on the mood board for my bedroom.





There is a story behind the tea pot – it’s from a teasmaid that we found in our old attic! Bargain!


And here’s a present from a lovely lady – all of the flowers in the vase mean something. How I love the gorgeous fluffy, soft buds of the pussy willow.

And I will leave you with the Rainbow Fish that No 1 Son made me many many years ago! … just because I can!!


I will show you more next time! Until then, follow your dreams.





Sunny days!

Oh how I love sunny days. It makes my heart glad to wake up when the sun is shining. I always feel like I get more done for some weird reason!

Here is a quick snap of my newest blanket … Cath Kidston inspired and for me. The edging wasn’t quite right in plain red soooo I added a pom pom edge and I love it! It makes me smile. Hope it makes you smile too.




I’d love to show you around the new Toadstool but at the moment all you’d see is boxes. So here’s a little smidgen of rediscovered happiness instead. Crochet hook is still missing and house is crochet less at the mo! Have a happy week.
