Things to smile about this week:

1. All your awesome comments on the launch of Happy Circus. Thank you so much. They all mean a bundle and have really encouraged me this week.

2. Selling my first item on Etsy to a lovely lady in the UK. A pompom garland is off to its new home and I really hope that she’s happy with her little purchase. B decided a week ago that they would be my best seller. Clever boy.

3. Meeting up with my awesome pals Anna, on Friday, and Lizzie, on Saturday. You know it’s a true friendship when you can meet up after months and chat like you only saw each other yesterday.

4. Wrapping up warm for a family walk along the canal, with the kiddos feeding the ducks and us eating Cadbury’s Crème Eggs.

5. Random conversations with B that turn into mega discussions with insanely cool outcomes. Husband dearest, you totally rock.


  1. Good on your for your first Etsy sale, that's definitely smile worthy. May it be the first of many...

  2. Your list makes me smile, too! Glad you had a great week!
    Now I'm off to check out your shop!! Yay!! :)

  3. You pics remind me of the dull days of late January in England - hope the sun peeks through for you soon!

    I love the booties - next friend to have a baby is getting some!

  5. these pics are priceless. I'm so glad you have so much to be happy about!

  6. Thanks for the comments on my gloomy post. Geez what a downer..who invited me?! Oh I hear you on the saltwaters. Just between you and me I know own 5 pairs..or is it 6. And it's too cold to even wear them yet. Im living summer vicariously through my sandals.
    ps congrats on your 1st sale. im trying to decide what colours I want on my garland...maybe pastel types??
