Happy’s House

Hello gals…how are you all this week…I hope you are all having fun in the sunshine!

Look (above) what we found whilst we were out thrifting last week…yes this lovely tin horse, that looks divine in our garden!…

apparently if you sit on it you can bounce up and down on it!! needless to say we didnt have a go, as there is no-one in our family small enough! LOL! but it sooo looks the part here in our nook don’t you think!

…and the other day whilst having a look around in an old cupboard I found this wonderful quilt…it has been made with tiny patches of all different of material, we think it could of been a sample piece, showing shops, what kind of patterns they had for material or shirts or ties perhaps…it is such an interesting piece, that I had to get it out and display it…..and it really does look waonderful over our quaint little settee. 🙂

This is a view of our Living room, it is sooo bright and cheery and I love sitting in there in the evening, watching my favourite programmes…Did you catch Eastenders last night!…OooOh it really bought a tear to my eye, when Dot (ahhh she is luverly!) talked about how time passes so quickly to Bianca and Ronnie, if you havn’t seen it, please do check it out.

Speak soon gals

Love Happy x

    Please , please, please don't leave your beautiful MoBo horse outside in all weathers! He is such a beautiful and precious toy, a wonderful memory from my childhood it would break my hear to think of him being exposed to the elements. Find him a corner inside your cute cottage, where he will be safe and dry!

    Your living room made me sigh with envy. Mine is full of blocks and legos at the moment–not quite the colorful inspiration I was looking for. Love the horse! I love what you share.

    I have the rocking horse version of your horsey on a shelf in my living room. I thrifted it when I was little – it was £5 which was A FORTUNE to a 6 year old! I do love how i pretty much exactly the same taste as I did at 6 though!

    Your horse is a Mobo Bronco pedal horse. My mom bought one second hand many years ago that my brother and sister used to ride. Hallmark made a miniature replica of it as part of their Kiddie Car Classics line in 1995, as well as an even smaller scale Christmas ornament in 1998. Love your blog, by the way!

    So cheerful and… Happy? Yep, that's it – you have such a happy house! I am toying with having our living area in red, white and blue this autumn – can you have influenced me somehow? I think that quilt is incredible, and would love to study each and every sample piece.

    Hi Happy! I missed truckloads of your blog because somehow I lost the link to it; I've just heard about Fred's Sjogrens, and I'm very sorry to hear he has been poorly. I have auto-immune things going on and had a lip biopsy earlier this year to see if I had Sjogrens. I don't, but I have all the symptoms so I have SOXX syndrome or something weird like that. I am having such fun catching up with your blog now that I'm unemployed… and I added your button to my sidebar cos it's so pretty!! Keep it up, your blog makes ME happy 🙂

    Yummy, your living room is lovely! It looks so bright and fresh.I think I like the same colours as you – pillar box red, primary blue and plenty of pink 🙂 That quilt is so pretty, I would love to have something like that in my living room but unfortunately the small children would ruin it!!!Mel xxx
