I've been tagged by Janet for this.

Here are the rules…
Link to the person who gave you the award. If you want.
Post the rules on your blog.
List six things that make you happy.
Tag six people at the end of your post and link to them.
Let each person know they’ve been tagged and leave a comment on their blog.
Let the person who awarded you know when your entry is up.

"Now I'm going to skip the whole family and big things that I'm grateful for like a house and job, and not living somewhere we could be bombed etc. Let's just take those things for granted eh? I'm going to list the little things, the small joys..."

The above is copied from Janet, and I just want to say, ditto.

1. Lying on the grass on a not too hot, not too cold, probably autumn day, with the sun on my face.
2. Having a whole day to myself to make and potter and do whatever I want, or do nothing and not feel guilty.
3. Reading a book cover to cover, in one go without stopping.
4. Eating food I haven't had to prepare myself.
5. Quiet.
6. Filling a bag up with rubbish. Really. Op-shopping also gets filed under this one. I get all exasperated at my littlest Monkey who loves nothing more than to fill up a bag of bits and pieces of rubbish, but I think I know who she inherited that little habit from....

Tag yourself if you feel like doing this. It does feel good to think about the little things that make you happy.

This is What I've Been Up to

Because I know you are all dying to see a glimpse of the chaos, I didn't bother with a nice backdrop. This is my latest idea, winter weight peaked caps, unisex.
Below is some of what is in the shop;

Little girls apron.
Boys shirt, made from a vintage (unused) pillowslip.
Man shirt, vintage fabric.
Horsey skirt.
Spotty dress, (SOLD, YAY!) and a glimpse of some of other people's stuff.

Photography is not my strong point.
