February

The smell of daffodils always takes me back to my childhood. They will always be my favorite flower.:

Now we are past January, we can look forward to spring! I love it when the shops start to sell daffodils and tulips, two of my favourite flowers. They have a short life but are so beautiful and somehow optimistic! Take a look at my Pinterest board, Spring Flowers for inspiration!

I love Friday night in our house, we all get home after a long, tiring week and look forward to relaxing with some great food and a glass of wine! Delia Smith’s Pork Stroganoff with Three Mustards is the perfect recipe, tasty but quick and easy to prepare. It would be a great dish to share with friends…. For more meal ideas take a look at my Family Meals Ideas.

Planting bulbs is a great way to get the most of  beautiful Spring flowers as they last longer.  I have a huge collection of vintage china and I thought it would be nice to use it to display planted bulbs.

I planted some dwarf daffodil bulbs in teacups and I think they look really cute! For more inspiration take a look at my post: Flowers and Vintage China or my Pinterest Board: Flowers and Vintage China….

Just pretty...

Are you planning any house renovations this year? I love browsing the Houzz website for ideas,  it’s even better now we have the UK version! I’ve put together an ideabook of Before and After House Stories to inspire you!

I love Soup, especially at this time of year, it’s so warming and comforting. It is a fantastic way to get your 5 a day and also helps you to lose weight by filling you up without adding too many calories. My current favourite recipe is Courgette and Lemon, it tastes divine! It also packs a nutritional punch, delivering nearly all of your daily vitamin C needs in one bowl! You can find more soup recipes here….
