Lantern garland...

Good morning lovelies! How are you all? I hope you've had a good long weekend, a wonderful Easter break and far too much chocolate? Has it been as cold where you are as it was here? Brrr...

Still, the clocks have gone forward, it's April and no matter what the weather is doing, I've decided to bring a bit of Spring into our home and pretend it's warm and sunny outside. There are many things I associate with the warm months of the year and one of them is little paper lanterns. In my head it looks a little bit like this: colourful little paper lanterns hanging from meters and meters of string which has been tied between trees, gently moving in the warm breeze at sunset, lending a soft light to an al fresco dinner with friends....

Ok, back to reality, because my little lanterns are currently hanging on a wall and will remain there until the thermometer reaches the dizzying heights of at least 20C. I've hung up 15 of those little handmade lanterns and have to say that it really does cheer me up and lends a welcome pop of soft colours. I know you really would like to know how these are made! So, hop over here and check out my little tutorial.

Now for something different: I am nearly (fingers crossed) done with my new blog/site but still need to tweak some parts. I will try and catch up with you as much as possible, but might be quieter here as I'm concentrating on putting some posts up on the new site. I hope you understand and really look forward to revealing it soon!
