52 weeks of happy (7/52)

The happiest people don't have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything.


Hope you are all happy this week.  Here are my happy things.
A gingerbread person my eldest decorated at school.  He is reading the story and the teacher brought them in so the little ones could get creative.  I say person because I can't quite identify gender due to the placement of the Smarties.

The vibrant red of these dogwood stems, more striking without leaves.

A beautiful rose blooming happily on a very frosty Sunday morning.

And enjoying doughnut muffins.  They went down a treat with the little ones.  I used Gilly's recipe.  Thanks for sharing.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Before I go, thank you for your lovely compliments on my Christmas wreath post.

  12. Very cute and tasty looking gingerbread (I had a giggle about the gender bit :P). The gingerbread man story is one of my favs.
    Stunning dogwood branches, I have a few in the front of my house..they add such lovely bright colour around this time of year.
    Have a great week x

  15. Given the Smarties at chest height I'm guessing that's a gingerbread gal ;)

  16. Doughnut muffins sound and look too good not to try and the gingerbread lady/man is precious, it's so cute when kids decorate their biscuits and cakes - the Year 1s I teach weekly cookery classes with love nothing more than sticking milky buttons or silver balls on everything!

  17. Hi Bee, have sent you an email x

  18. The red dogwood stems are really breathtaking. Those muffins look good. There is an excellent Nigella recipe for jam doughnut muffins which my kids (and I!) adore - little jam filled cakes dipped in melted butter then rolled in sugar. Heart attack heaven! xx
