Flowers, Babies and Other Things

Ah, yes, the beautiful hydrangeas are blooming!

"I will be the gladdest thing
Under the sun!
I will touch a hundred flowers
And not pick one."

This weekend I made myself a new handbag. I used a vintage tea towel along with some of my bits and bobs of lace. I think I will still need to add a button and little loop on the top to keep it closed. I'll have to rumage through my stash again. Here's a front and back photo ~

and the day wouldn't be complete without a photo of my favorite little fella...

  7. Your bag is very pretty, Laurie.
    I like the lace embellishments and using an old tea towel is a great idea!
    I've seen these around other blogs too and seeing I have a stash of old doilies etc. I will have to make one myself.
    I love hydrangeas..especially when they are sofly coloured and delicate.
    Your little man is adorable!
    That photo looks just like my own son's baby pics :-)
    Bless you..Trish xx
