This and that..

Hello lovelies! Feels good to be back in blogging. Having a baby around means very little time to do pretty much any other thing, So sorry for missing out posts from my blogging friends. I intend to catch up with you all and see what's happening in your world.
I really miss crafting time lately but i do try my best to squeeze in a little time for them when i can. Here's a little crocheted boots and headband that i whipped up for my baby girl.


Recently I've been addicted to drinking cinnamon tea with lemon and honey. Having them along with butter cookies is a great way to start a day.


Received this wonderful package from my fellow blogging friend Joy from We live at the top of the hill So kind and thoughtful of her to include a lovely card and beautiful dress for my little one. Thank you very much dear.

Have a fantastic day everyone. Much love :)
