My February....

A fair bit of all sorts of baking has been done in my house this month!

Deliciously yummy little heart shortbread biscuits 
with a nice fresh zingy lemon icing.
We all enjoyed them so much, it was hard to get a photo of them 
before they where eaten.  I made them again and again.

During the Half-term week the Paperdolls also got struck by the baking bug 
and made super scrumptious vanilla cupcakes, 
with soft-cheese icing, my favorite icing, 
topped with my all time favorite topper 100 & 1000’s 
and finished with a little flake! 
A perfect looking and tasting “99” cent cupcake.

And a little soda bread baking by me on special request from Teen Paperdoll.

The sun has been shining a fair few days this month 
and there has been a real feeling of spring around!  
I just loooooove having all the windows and doors open 
even when on some days it was still a little to cold for it really.  
I have cherished the spring flowers in our house,

 but when baby Paperdoll and I discovered the first crocus flower in our garden 
my heart jumped for joy.... spring has really arrived lets just hope it is here to stay!

February also was my month of marshmallows....

I am not sure why or even how it started but I have enjoyed 
way to many marshmallows in every shape and size this month.

And when I stumbled across a packet of Lucky Charms in TX Maxx all was lost, 
even my breakfast was marshmallowfyed.  
My first Lucky Charms in many.. many.. maaaaaaany years 
but still tasting as good as I remembered.  
....So much for eating a little healthier this spring....
the silver lining on my marshmallow horizon is lent starts next Wednesday 
and I am giving up sugar!  So I will make the most of this weekend
....marshmallows be aware!!!

There has also been a little time for some sewing.  
I have been working on a few of my half done must makes from last year 
and I am happy to say the end is in sight.  
And I have also worked on a new project, but more on that on my next post.
I am enjoying my more focus approach to my creativity 
it allows me to get much more done.

All in all my February has been a good one, 
I have enjoyed moving through the month at a nice steady pace.   
Now it’s HELLO to March.... 
Have a lovely weekend!
