Favourite Things & A Monthly Make

We have a small Cherry Tree in our back garden, that my Mum & Dad gave Mr A & I as a house warming gift when we moved here nearly 10 years ago - which came into flower this week. This, coupled with the warmer weather and blue skies that we have been enjoying over the last couple of days, has really made it feel as if Spring has truly sprung!




Isn't it pretty? Many moons ago I was lucky enough to be working in Japan during the Cherry Blossom season and it was just so beautiful. It's such a shame that the flowers only last a couple of weeks, 
so whilst it lasts, Cherry Blossom is definitely my Favourite Thing On A Friday

What's yours?

As well as giving me a pretty view from my kitchen window my little tree also gave me my inspiration for my March Project for the Monthly Make Challenge:
Based on the brooch shape I designed for Mr A's mum's birthday pressie, I added a little branch shape and embellished with tiny pink flower shaped sequins, for a bit of Spring colour. What do you think?

Did you make anything for the Monthly Make Challenge

Have fun. xx

I can't believe you've spent time in Japan, me too! Where were you? I arrived in Japan during cherry blossom season and they are my favourite flower. Your cherry blossom brooch is stunning. Thank you for joining in with Favourite Thing on a Friday. Hope you're having a great weekend. Em x
