Happy 101

I have been lucky enough to score a new award from the lovely Claire Marie over at Spontaneous Delight: Happy Days!

I like her blog, a lot. It is simple and unselfconscious and.........well..........happy. It is a happy blog. Go have a look-see.

The deal with this award is:

1. Copy and paste the award on your blog. Check

2. Tell who gave you the award and link to their blog. Check

3. List 10 things that make you happy. Check. See below.

4. Pass the award on to other bloggers and let them know that they have won. Check. See below.

So, the things that make me happy? Loads of things. Mostly superficial. In random order, in pictures:

Nice smelly candles
Fresh cut flowers


Good quotes

Funky Aprons

Good coffee


Fresh cut grass

But most of all: most of all, this little five make me happy.

And now to tag some other happy blogs:

Lulu @ Unperfect Life, because she is happily unperfect and I know she wants to use images.
Life With Kaishon because I love her style
DarNonymous because I miss her when she doesn't post
Hot Cross Mum because she is cool
Brenda at Mummy Time because she is happy. All the time!

  6. Congrats you happy blogger. Funky aprons, I like that.

  7. Kristin, DO NOT get me started on funky aprons. I am addicted.

  8. Congrats! Yes, your blog is a bright spot!

  9. Congratulations! You deserve it. I am however, am concerned about the funky aprons.
    I'd agree with the rest (ofcourse with my family - not yours) but the aprons lost me.

  10. I'm so there with the aprons. I think the one you have displayed is gorgeous. TBH I have a penchant for the very practical but vibrant old tunic type apron.

    Thanks for popping over to my blog, and you should definitely definitely watch Life is Beautiful. I'll warn you, its all subtitled, but I love the sound of the italian and its easy to follow :)

  11. Tab, I am glad I am not the only one. Do you mean the canteen lady style apron? Or more of an Edwardian old tunic?

    Stuff it, I am gonna have to collage all the varying apron styles I can find, LOL!

    And Life is Beautiful is HIRED....ready for me for when the littlies go to bed. (We have a video shopon the corner near my daughters school. I ducked in. I cannot wait.)

  12. Thankyou thankyou thankyou! This is so sweet.
    I know, I am badly neglecting bloggy land but I promise all this sacrificing is for a good reason (as you know) & hopefully it will pay off & we will all be one big happy blog family one day! Hee hee!
    Love your list in pics, your posts always just make me smile & swoon. Awwwww. What a happy household you must have with a ball of positiveity like you!

  13. Dar, you have no idea. I am evil really.

  14. Ahh, thank you so much. I love your happy things and what gorgeous images you chose. I'll post my happy things asap - just the thing I need after a tough morning wrestling small boys into shoes, cars, school......


I am a comment addict. Thank you so much for your words...xx
