Good morning all... :)
So if you were in Edinburgh this weekend you would have had to be a die hard festival fan to brave all that rain and take in some of the (cold and soggy) fun... It really was miserable out there and as I am certainly no die hard fan I made my own fun around here... Well, amongst the usual housework, grocery shopping and dog walking (thrilling, I know!) there was wine, a few good films, a spot of crochet (as well as pulling some ideas together for something I have been procrastinating about for so long!), oh and a yummy Sunday roast dinner... Yorkshire puddings and gravy, oh how I have missed you!

Anyhoo, with the lack of sunshine around here you guys have come to my rescue again with all your fabulous submissions to 'all colours in' Flickr pool. You all must have sensed my need for bold sunny yellows and oranges because there have been so many added this weekend! This is just a tiny selection of all the pretty pictures I had to choose from this morning, but if you go check out the first few pages of the pool you will find the rest... :)

Wishing you all a great Monday... !
Emma, x

  3. Good morning and happy Monday!

    know all about the grey you experienced this weekend, as shades of it are colouring my day starting this morning... quite cold, rainy & cloudy here, still somehow nicely fresh... do no mind that much as it's warm and cozy in here, but then sunshine always makes our naturally coloured ambience look brighter & happier!

    Instead I'm colouring my Monday happier thank's to your bright pops of coulour, lovely as always :)

    Sending some sunshine all over to you & Spanner {borrowed from Greece ;)}
