A bit of cheekiness, Some cuteness and a Giraffe

My Post today is a little bit different
I wanted to show you a few different things in one post... 
I am so happy with my garden so far this year so many things are coming out already... But here come the peonies just about a week or so before they burst open... and yes that really is a bicycle wheel
Recycling is our thing!

As lots of you know I LOVE to crochet and here is some more flower bunting this one is for my Son's Girl friend she's gonna be 18 this weekend so I have made her 18 flowers on the bunting :) 

Here is the little bit of cheekiness a lovely mouse being cheeky and pinching
the birds nuts! Ohhh that sounds rude!.... Mr Mouse was very clever he waited for the birds to loosen the nuts.....

and then he would jump on and help himself!

Clever and Cheeky!

and here is what I think is a little Cuteness!
I have crochet this little summer hat for our Granddaughter
she's 9 weeks old and her Mummy loves pink!
Hope it fits and they like it

and a Giraffe
Loving the Wooden Laser cuts this one I painting with Acrylic paints
the words are mountboard words coloured with Spectrum Noir Pens
and I just LOVE enamel dots too!

  1. Blimey bird! The garden is looking amazing, I love the crochet bunting (what a neat idea), I think that chubby mouse has had more than one nut recently, brilliant baby hat, and cute giraffe card. Phew, I think that about covers it! Hugs xx

  2. waw beautiful garden, and oh the mouse is ssooo cute and claver ;)))) I love your pretty hat and the card is gorgeous as always. Have a lovely weekend. Hugs! Mojca

  3. Lovely pickiest on your post this morning Samantha.. Cute flower bunting and hat, been a long time since I crochet, would have to look up you tube to get started again.. Love peony's and what a great way to support the stems. Not least your card, bright and colourful and sweet wee giraffe. Hope the sun shines for a great weekend! Enjoy. Carolxx

  4. Such a lovely and varied post Samantha. I love peonies but sadly they don't thrive in our very open garden so I've given up trying to grow them, what a splendid idea to use a bike wheel as support though!! You may have seen that I have been teaching myself crochet and have, at last, mastered flowers so this may be a good project for me to try!! Such a darling little hat too!! x

  5. You are such a creative person, Samantha. Love your use of the bike wheel,
    hugs Dorte
