Light Nights - I love 'em

 Oh I just love the light evenings...we are now watching 'Dancing on Ice' and it is still light!...I feel so much more energetic!
 The cherry blossom will soon be in full bloom...
 ...and this lovely pink flower has already started to bud and bloom...I always forget what it is called (someone please remind me!)
 Isn't nature wonderful!...Easter is on the way, and its time to get in the garden and clear away all the old and start planting some new.
 Its also time to get those old garden shoes out and put the wellies away...oh its all so exciting for me as I love this time of year...we also have a new caravan to do up as well..I have been saving this especially for the Spring...its gonna be my BIG spring project.
 And all the lovely dafodils and tulips here and there...Oh bring it on!
Do you love Spring and what have you been up to this weekend?

Yarn Bombing - Knit the City - Love it!

 I was watching TV this evening and on popped an article about Yarn Bombing (I think it was on 'The One Show' but don't quote me!)...I had heard of it before, but hadn't really paid that much attention to it!...Well I happened to say I liked this on Facebook and so many people replied, so I thought I would bring this FANTABULOUS idea to your attention (thats if you havn't heard of it before of course!)!
It's kind of friendly graffitti but applied with quirky knitting of all shapes and sizes...you know the kind of stuff that, if you saw it, it would make you Happy! Just looking at these pictures shows you a little insight into it!...It so makes me want to get out the 'Ole' Knitting needles again...and brighten up my Towns lamp posts and pavements etc!
    Anyway to have a preview and a butchers into a bit more detail have a look HERE

 You will be so glad that you did...and I hope it will put a BIG smile on your face just like it did us, at The Happy House ;)
Have you ever participated in an event like this? and if so what have you knitted and where have you placed it?...Are you planning on Yarn Bombing in the near future...if so please tell us more...As I am sooooo interested in this! Thanks my luvelies xx

Free Pretty Teacosy Pattern for Spring




I have been searching through my vintage patterns and found this!...I know a lot of you love to knit...so I thought this would be a lovely gift from me to you...

It would look lovely on your kitchen table...and just in time for spring!


(just copy and paste the info to word, they are big enough to read) or just 'save image as' probably easier and then you can print it out ;)

Oh and please please please...if you knit one...can you show me it finished! as I would never be able to knit something as lovely as this!

PS If you need any knitting supplies Have a look HERE
Enjoy!

New Doll Additions

 I have found a couple of new dolls...what do you think of them...?

Sorry about the picture quality...coupled with my camera getting worse and the light in my cottage...it doesn't bode very well for brilliant pictures...but hopefully you can see how divine they are!

I won the black one and the one just above on Ebay...I can never seem to get a bargain on there these days....but with these I did!

Blondie's head was falling off a bit...and not being very 'up there' with doll restoration, I stuck her head back on with E6000 glue...gosh that stuff is good!...she needs a little wash, especially her feet and hair...but its her eyes that bowled me over! Isn't she just sooo pretty and cute!
The black one is so sweet too, I love that kind, especially without their hair, it has probably fallen off over time...but I love 'em like that...and to actually own a black one is brilliant...she is sooo pretty.

The red one I have had for a while now...I can't remember where I bought her...but I bet it was from a Bootsale or some Flea Market somewhere...I always think..I wonder what the owners are thinking, when I buy some of their unwanted goods! Because I am in my own little world, when I am out and about! Often talking to myself and chuckling away at the (what I think is cute and pretty) and sometimes I hear them saying! lol! OMG I never thought I would sell that!...hehehe! 

What have you bought lately that you love and other peeps have rolled their eyes at?

I'd love to know that I am not the only one like this! ;)
