Baby it's cold outside!

Brr-r-r-r-r-r- what a few cold weeks it has been here in Belgium.  After a very mild winter, crocus and daffodils starting to spring up in the garden Jack Frost appeared in all his glory!  It has been wonderful to have bright sunny days, we've had 2 weeks of not going above freezing, -10 most days during the day, which for here is vvvvery cold!

Very busy behind the scenes with orders and working on a new Spring/Easter collection which I can't wait to share.  Right now I'm trying to get everything ready before I go home to the UK to visit family from Feb 15th-22nd.  My Etsy Shop will remain open whilst I'm away but I will be sending anything ordered during this time out on the 24th Feb.

I've been out de-frosting the water for the birds in my garden every day and topping up their food as they are kind enough to let me act like a papparazzi!  I will let the photos do the talking.

I'll be sure to take photos back in England so look forward to sharing with you when I get back.
Stay Warm wherever you are in the world!

Really wonderful photographs Catherine. I think it's lovely - that you run the little bird cafe and in return they pose for pictures :)

What is the fluffy one in the middle? Is it a greenfinch maybe? I am not very good, despite striving to improve. I can do robins and blackbirds very well however!

I'm actually not sure either Charlotte, I've had some different ones with all this cold and have been trying to work out what they are. The one with a russet red chest sat on top of the snowy roof is new too.. So glad you enjoyed my bird cafe :) Catherine xx

Aww I love birdies! What great photos you took of them. I'm always watching them out my windows and now my desk in my studio faces the window I can see them all day! Have a fab time in the UK. Blessings Niki x
