Things that made me smile this week...

This week has been a GOOD one...
I thought I'd take a minute to share the happiness.

On Monday, my fiancé Samm and I went to see the wedding reception venue we were to fall in love with.
It's beautiful and surrounded by fields and lakes and flowers! 
(...we don't have flowers in Hull)
It just happened to be the first real Spring day and we walked around the area hand in hand in the sunshine, and he picked these for me...

This free-to-download e-book  by Michael Nobbs on getting into drawing as a habit. 
This made me laugh... It's so up my street. 
No theory, no nonsense, lots of love for tea.

Last night, after a long day of work, I sat cross legged on the kitchen floor with my housemate (and almost sister-in-law) Liz and made three big trays of these cakes... just for the two of us... just because.
Do ignore the burned bit... it gives them character.

Checking my facebook, emails and everything else to find that my gorgeous friends have sent me countless links to wedding- related sites. Then reading through them all with a big mug of cherry tea.

Fi Figueroa @ Previously Owned asking me if my little brooches are for sale. 
It was lovely to know that somebody wanted them to be =)
(and for the record - they will be... soon.)

Getting tickets to go see THE SUBWAYS in June!!
I am TOO excited.
It will be the perfect celebration of the end of my degree.

Good times.
