Tulips and awards

I bought some tulips today. Pink ones. 

These flowers called out my name when doing the grocery shopping this morning.  Good Friday and Holy Saturday are such sombre days that beautiful things are needed to decorate this old house.

On another beautiful topic, the lovely Lesley from Life at Number 10 gave me a Sunshine Award.

How cool is that? It is so nice when people acknowledge that they like reading you. Thank you so much for this award, Lesley!!

1.Put the logo on your blog or in a post
2.Pass the award on to 12 fellow bloggers
3.Link to the nominees within your post
4.Let them know they have received it by leaving a comment for them
5.Share the love and link to the person who gave you the award

As you may already know, I'm not really great at giving out awards. Most of you have already received this award and most of you read the blogs that I read.

So, if you write a blog and I read it and/or leave comments, it means I think you rock. Really, you do.

However, I will mention a new blog I'm following which I think is really cute.

Travelling with Ana

It's a blog by a 3 month-old baby girl who will be travelling quite a bit this year with her jet-setting parents. Ana hopped on the plane to New Zealand earlier today. South America is also on her travel itinerary.

Yes, this child will be better travelled than me by the time she turns one. Lucky girl!

Anyway, it is a new little blog which is a bit of light fun. And who can resist a back-packing infant?


  1. Congratulations on your award, it is well deserved and the tulips are beautiful! I love fresh flowers, they always make such a difference in your home! Happy Easter, I hope you have a lovely weekend!xx

  2. Those tulips were definitely made to come home with you - enjoy your Long Weekend with their gorgeousness to brighten the house.

  3. Congrats on the award...a deserved recipient!
    So which grocery store do you go to? All I ever see are chrysanthumums (sp?) and droopy roses!
    Must check out that blog and see what Ana gets up to in NZ.

  4. Well deserved award. Your posts are always a highlight to me, I love your blog. :)

    p.s. pink tulips are so pretty...

  5. Congrats on your award - I'm glad to have found your blog recently.
    Have a lovely Easter :)

  6. Thanks so much for such lovely comments!!
    Ange, would you believe the tulips were from our local Coles. They were too pretty to pass up.


Love to read your comments
