lazy day

purple, pink and white tulips
Brrrr.. its freezing cold outside,  the cv (central heating) is working overtime.
So I stayed in today and  made a few granny squares.
Did some laundry and made more granny squares, again.
Just enjoyed a lazy day!

So excited!!

LOVE the tulips! They are one of my favorite flowers!

Leuk idee! Bij mij staat de theepot maar in de kast mooi te zijn, want ik zet meestal thee in koppen. Dank voor de inspiratie! Heerlijk zo'n 'luie' dag waarop je dan toch lekker de tijd had om te knutselen!

María Xi said...

Beatiful flowers.
Greetings from Chile.

Here's a silly little joke for your lazy day. (My kids tell me this one!)
Q: What kind of flower grows under your nose?

A: Tulips!

Thanks for a cute post!

What a gorgeous teapot! I would love to see the tulip fields in the Neatherlands someday. I would even attempt to lie in them. :)

sorry to hear it is chilly there too! This is going to be a much celebrated spring when it comes! When it warmed up over 10 degrees in Norway to only -5 it feels balmy! :) I love this pretty photo with the beautiful flowers in the teapot!
