happy place, happy space: getting crafty

We say goodbye to our neighbours who have become good friends as they move to Turkey early next week. We met them at the start of the pandemic: we exchanged the goodies birthed in our kitchens, celebrated with them when their beautiful daughter was born 5 months ago, agonised with them when health matters got dicey.

As they excitedly prepare for a new chapter in their lives, we send them off with a small gift (and some tears), along with all our good wishes & intentions.


Reading your Joyful Posts brings me to my happy place. I hope having them in one place makes it easier for you to find when you need a bit of happy therapy, too.

If you would like to join in, ping back to this post and I will include you next week.


The 4 coasters are tatted by Nimble-Fingered Older Daughter in the couple’s favourite colours, and the envelopes which house a card & the coasters were crafted by myself.

    1. Thank you for the hug Natalie! This goodbye was particularly difficult and we became like family in these past isolation months.

      But I am so glad they are happily reunited with Baby’s grandparents (first time meeting this 5 month old cutie) and their new journey begins.
