Welcome to my Sunny Sunday home!!! I hope you are fine and spending great time! I have today so much RED in my post so it’s better I write with grey!
Last week I found this beatiful scene on my way to Maherida – Poppies – lots of Poppies!!! Every where is so much flowers and colours this time of the year! It’s spring and new summer season has begun. Seven fligths with tourists has came to Chania this weekend and today first Finnish tourists!!! Welcome!!! At the airport there were Greek dancers and Greek food to welcome them! Seven fligths … could you believe that in the busiest time of the summer there may be 70 fligths in one Saturday which is normally the most busy day!
I don’t get tired to see these flowers front of my house … every day there is more and more! We don’t have really so much flowers in the garden, which is quite big – there is mostly plants that are more easy to take care of during the long, hot and dry summer.
The bees are so hard-working! Crete and Greece are famous of the honey – it’s so tasty and unique because there are so many different herbs for bees!
But except the flowers there is an other lovely thing … we have won in a giveaway! I was so supprised and really happy for the present we got from Jacquie ‘The bunny mummy’! Thank you Jacquie!!!
Beautiful needle book and wonderful card! This is so perfect present because I don’t have any needle book, so now it’ll be so nice to sit outside stitching and quilting when I can have my needles in this book with me! Look how sweet it is!
And the card, it’s not just any card … Jacquie has a wonderful diary and every month she shows to us what there is for this month! It’s the ‘The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady’ with beautiful illustrations. Have a look and enjoy!
Jacquie writes about crocheting, sewing and more with her qute bunnies. Also she shares with us the wonderful countryside around her! I want to show you one of her great ideas which I want to use in my jumper and jacket … klik here! Don’t you think it’s just a perfect way to make your dress or pullover unique! Jacquie, I hope you don’t mind … but I want to show this …
Nero wanted to smell the needle book when we took photos outside … now I saw how interested he was … perhaps he was smelling your sweet bunnies!
Nero was hoping to get company to play with his ball … but I had something else to do …
I wanted to take photos to show you the pillows I have made for the apartments. Nero brought to me his ball and said : this is red, too!
How nice it would be to have something like “Fire Tail” pillow for every house, but because I can’t do that , I’ll make pillows like these.
Today everything is red … and my car is supposed to be red … still few days ago it was something else!
You know we have been painting white walls …
Every spring we have special rain with dust from Africa and it means ‘muddy rain’! Everything gets dirty! Usually it comes just when you have made the spring cleaning for the balconies, washed your windows, cars etc.
Now it has passed and it’s beautiful and sunny day – quiet and pieceful day at home!
I just visited Penny from Planet Penny and she has a wonderful Eastern giveaway! I don’t think you want to miss that! And if you don’t know Penny yet, it’s time to meet her and the adorable beings, she creates with wool!!!
I’m so happy that you had fun like we did when finding out where ‘Violetta’ was hiding! Thank you so much for visiting our small sewing and playing corner! We enjoy so much reading every unique and lovely message you’re writing to us!
Have a great, sunny week with your April creations! You know that this month ‘Being Creative’ has theme: Dessert – how delicious that is!!!
What a lovely ‘red’ post Teje! Your cushions are really beautiful . They will make the apartments lovely and bright. Glad all that African ‘dirty’ rain has passed. I was worried that your car had got sprayed with paint!!!!! Dear Nero, he looks as though he is really enjoying his red ball. Thank you for the link to a new blog. I shall pop over to see penny. Have a lovely week Teje and Nero. Ros and Oscar
Hi Teje..Your red cushions are beautiful and will be wonderful in your apartments..they will bring a real holiday charm especially with the blue skies and blue blue sea outside being such a contrast! Congratulations on winning such a unique needle book and card too.

Hi Teje, I have looked up about noreply and wordpress and found that wordpress and blogger do not mix. If blogger people do not know this they will assume you are just a noreply blogger and most won’t go to your blog to find your email or reply. Blogger users may not see that they have to click the box for being notified when you make your reply. They just won’t realize that you are used to replying in your comments section and not by email.
This person was a bit annoyed about the whole blogger thing at the time of their post but told me that they have since made a blogger profile so they can get replies from blogger users into their gmail.
Hope this helps a bit. To sum up – get a blogger profile or wait for blogger users to work out how wordpress works. Harsh but true.
Don’t you just love Red! I think it is one of the most vibrant colours around. Your post immediately made me think of this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZiCc5OXrGic
It is a song of one of Hollands most popular singers and was an huge succes.
Oh my goodness, Teje, your photos are gorgeous! I love the pillows, too! I’m glad you’ve stopped by my blog just so I could come here and see your lovely photos. I will be back to see what other lovely things you have to show. Nero is wonderful. I’d play ball with him.
Wow, your flowers are just beautiful. I have a total black thumb and cannot seem to get anything to grow! I especially love that red one toward the end, what kind of flower is that? Your new pillow is lovely as well, great job.
Thank you Elisabeth! I’m not very good with the garden even I like to work there. I have only some flowers which are easy and don’t need much taking care of. That red flower is geranium (we call it also pelargonia/pelargonium). I love them and I would like to have many colours but this red is most strong and doesn’t mind the hot and dry summer. Those patchwork blocks I made to try something for a big blanket, but it was too red for me. So they became perfect for pillows. Have a lovely time! Teje
