This Joyful Moment | 011

Happy Friday, friends. What a gorgeous day it's been. I write this with the sun streaming in through the windows. I so wish moments like this could be bottled for those duller, grey days. It's been a happy Friday for me as I found out that my styling the seasons post for April was picked by Emily Quinton as part of the at{mine} competition collaboration. This means that I've won a place at a floral workshop at the end of the month. To say I'm giddy with excitement is an understatement! 

In other exciting news, a project I worked on for Laura Ashley is up now too. Dreaming of summer days and adventures in the wild, I whipped up a no-sew teepee using their pretty bird fabric. Perfect for days when the temperature is soaring, just add a pile of magazines and a GnT. Here's a little sneak peek at the tent, featuring Moley cat, who took an instant shine to hiding in it. For the full post hop on over to the Laura Ashley blog.

But back to this post, and last Sunday was another wonderful day over on the #thisjoyfulmoment instagram feed. I love to scroll through the images seeing the wonderful range of happy moments - from times with family, to the great outdoors or indulging in tasty treats. Thank you for joining Laura and me on this little project. 

Here are just a few of the lovely images which made me smile... What is it about teeny toes and hands? Too precious!
