A happily borrowed idea

I love other people's blogs, they are just so jammed packed full of inspiration that I have to limit myself to just a brief glance now and again otherwise I could quite easily spend my whole life gathering wonderful bits of loveliness. Even more fabulous is that very few people mind if you copy their ideas, in fact in some cases it is encouraged. For example take the brilliant idea 52 weeks of happy from over at Little Birdie... who wouldn't want to post four things that have made them happy that week? I am a massive fan of focussing on what makes you happy, it's how I like to live my life and there it is in black and white, an invitation to join in all this weekly happiness from the lady herself.

The wonderful thing about the happy world of blogging is that I can join in and I can let Jen (I talk as if I know her which sounds a little cheeky) know that I have joined in and you never know she might even take a look at what made me happy this week.

1. Dressing up

2. Walking by the sea on New Years Day

3. Sketching and painting from a photo taken whilst out on the walk by the sea

4. Reading Anthony Browne books at the Anthony Browne exhibition - Through the magic mirror: The world of Anthony Browne

Thank you Little Birdie x


  1. Isn't it a great idea? I've joined too. And it's so interesting to read what other people find happy as well as finding our own 'happies'

    1. I loved all your happy things. See you next week

  2. This sounds lovely, I agree with you, it's so much better to try to focus on the things that make you happy. I'm going to have a nose at Little Birdy now! Xx

    1. I so like stumbling upon new blogs, new ideas and happy things. Hope you enjoy Little Birdie
