Hi there, I'm Ali and brand new to this blogging thingy so not sure how things work. I decided to start a blog because a very good friend of mine kept saying I should have one, told me it's easy, so here goes.

I have decided to call it Blossom and Grow because over the last few years that's exactly how I feel my life has been. Maybe i'm a late developer. You're never too old to try new
things and life definitely starts at 40 something.

April Showers

Well what a rainy April it has been here! I've just posted my Monthly Make Challenge April which also was part of my spring swap on Shabby Chic Forum hope Cartier06 likes what I have sent. Here is a peek at my spring items.

I have also made a duck and as you have guessed I did have a lot of wool in spring yellow and orange.

I received gorgeous items from my swap partner and here are the photos most of the chocs have been eaten already so much for me losing weight yikes.


  1. Your teapot and mug look nice and cosy. Lovely colour and the flowers are really sweet.
