I just could not resist........

I could not resist sitting on top of these crispy autumn leaves.......

I could not resist making these vintage encrusted lovelies.......


I cannot resist making anything with birds on.......

I cannot resist the making of Advent decorations........



I cannot resist being in the park at any time


As you can see, all my inspirations come from all of you, my blog friends, and the gorgeous and beautiful things that you make. You are my encouragement.....and I thank you all from my heart for your inspiration.
If you have time I would love to know what you cannot resist doing!! Dare you divulge your secrets............
Have a fun and lovely week, dance in the leaves, collect jewelled cobwebs on forked branches, but don't listen to the squirrels, they tell terrible tales.............
Love and hugs Lynn xx

I can't resist looking into people's windows when the lights are on at dusk and the curtains are open.
Love your outfit Lynn!

Lee W. said...

OMG, you are so adorable. I love everything you've made. I wish I had time just to sit and craft! I love the tins in the calendar! I am busy making some Christmas tags for a party at a firends house. I hope they buy all of them!!

Marja Kristiina said...

The coolest crafts! You've got it going on!

And what lovely pics of you! I feel a little stupid having acted as a Trinny because you look absolutely fantastic!!! The outfit is to die for.

Toni said...

I can't resist splashing in any fountain I come across. I can't resist the bird-song on my patio every morning. I can't resist go-go dancing to Duffy's song, "Mercy". I can't resist ANY lingerie with chocolate brown and pink. I can't resist fantasies of Javier Bardem.

I LOVE your creations, and I want to play in those leaves with you. Way more fun than a food fight!

MaryPoppins said...

I cannot resist walking past a tree and giving it a great big hug :) X

Solange said...

You look so nice with your hat and coat! I love the picture of you sitting on the leaves.
I am so inspired by you, always peeking on your blog, and thinking how can she make all those things...?
have a great week Lynn!!

hug,
Solange

Jema Rose said...

I´m so glad you liked my new banner, but I saw that "JEMA ROSE" wasn´t really in the middle...will have to change that I think..!

Take care!

Love love love your blog! And thankyou for introducing me to Lifehouse love them too! Your work is really gorgeous and very inspiring.
I cant resist autumn leaves either, we have been lucky not to have had many storms yet this year so there are still plenty on the trees. Jane

Marianne said...

I love your advent decoration, especially the calender with the tins. It is so cute.
It seems you had a nice time in the park.
Bye,

Now we are back from Gotland.
My friend bought a very special house there...
Love your photos, you are so cute.
I'm a bit surprised, do you celebrate advent?

Pamela Terry and Edward said...

You look the perfect picture of an autumn elf. How I love your blue and green. I do love visiting you.

Today, I cannot resist happiness. I realize the world is so messy at the moment, but the sun is shining, my dogs are smiling, it's the perfect cool day and we are planning a long walk after lunch.

I also cannot resist allowing Edward to put his paws on my shoulders. He is a delight.

MuseSwings said...

Everything you make is magic and beautiful! I love stopping by to take a peek! Thank you for the warning about the squirrels! They steal my figs and my rose buds too - I shall not listen to anything they say.
You look so cute in these pictures! An autumn sprite!

Sal said...

I can't resist reading your blog,that's for sure,tis so beautiful!

I can't resist a chunk of crusty bread, spread with marmite.

Finally,I can't resist dear Mr Snippets! ;-) ;-)

Queen of the Armchair aka dzintrastitcheries said...

I cannot resist ...the call of a salty blue day beckoning to come take a beach walk ...perhaps find some gifts of the sea ... a lovely shell, perhaps some sea glass. Also cannot resist feeling the texture of beautiful rich velvet especially in winter time. And I cannot resist popping by to visit ... I wish you a lovely week ...and mind those squirrels, Take Care Love Dzintra

Annie said...

I can't resist easedropping on other peoples' conversations in restaurants. If I'm walking at night, I look in windows (from the sidewalk, of course). Every pile of leaves I see has my name on it.

Michelle said...

Awwwww...I just love your outfit and all the beautiful things you create! :)

Miss Maddie's said...

You say you draw your inspiration from us your blog friends... I think it is you that inspires us.
Your creativity speaks from your soul, your love of the earth from your heart and your words of wisdom, well they have evolved over time.
What could I not resist... although separated by miles of vast ocean I would enjoy walking with you through the land of my ancestors listening to the song of the birds and yes even the tales from the squirrels.
My deepest sympathy for the loss of your friend.
xo Susan

Shirl said...

Beautiful things and a great photo of you on the pile of leaves.

I can't resist hot buttery crumpets, heavenly hot chocolate with marshmallows on top, after dinner coffee with Drambuie and cream, sitting by roaring fires in village pubs, the crunch of icy autum leaves underfoot ... the list goes on lol!

Naturegirl said...

Sea Angels said...

I love all of your can't resists, and I have to say I can't resist most of them either, especially the scrummy ones, no matter what the squirrels say!!!!
Hugs Lynn xx

Gary and Elizabeth~ said...

All your hand work is beautiful and creative! You are a true talent. I guess I could say that I can not resist scooping up my two grandchildren in my arms and kissing them all over and hugging them really tight. I have enjoyed my visit today.

Have a wonderful day,
Elizabeth

Tracey said...

Carol said...

I really do love the advent calender Lynn, brilliant idea.
Oh I wish I could go out and plomp myself down on a nice soft pile of leaves....xx

I love this post! The photos of you are so adorable! You make the prettiest things! One thing that is hard for me to resist is kissing my kitties on the cheek. ~Mandy

Karen from A`Musements said...

What a treat to see you plopped down in the leaves... the "crispy leaves" at that! I have been worried about you, so I am more than a little pleased to see that you have been up to your usual hyper-creative self and I can see you've had some fun.... good for you and your soul! Have a wonderful week, Lynn... your newest creations are wonderful!
xoxo
Karen

Vintage paintings said...

Oh - there are so many things I can`t resist:
Hugging my children, having a big wonderful creamy coffee 3 times a day (huff), check my blog for new comments, and to visit yours :) Smile when I see my parents together because they have something very special together, - and...eating chokolate right from the fridge...
I could go on and on.
Have a wonderful, creative day Lynn!
Hugs Solveig

Sussi's värld said...

Hi!
Thank you for the comments.
No, it's not converted yet, but the benches and the altar is gone..
There is no water or toilet in the house, but it will be next summer,
and it's tricky to figure out how to warm up the big room.
But when you look out the windows and you can see the water it's well worth it:-)

madeleinemiranda said...

You are so creative, a true inspiration! Keep up your lovely work!

Take care,

Mademoiselle M.

Henna said...

What a pretty girl surrounded by lovely nature! Just a superd pic of you dear friend :-)
Once again...so magically lovely items you´ve created! Wish I had more energy to create but somehow it´s bottled up somewhere..I´ve started to make a Santa for Yule, some details before it´s finished. For now it have to wait a while before I can finish it. There is so much other "must do things" in line. I´m also working late this week so my spare time is limited.
We´ve had many crispy and cold days, this day is warmer and mysteriously foggy. Markos snowduty season has started so I think I´ll wish a white Yule from Santa ;-)
What I cant resist? So many things...one of them is to cuddle with our cats, listen to them when they purr...daydreaming, a hug from my husband, fleamarket bargains...smiling back at those who smile at me...:-)

Don´t forget to rest a while my friend! I hope you´ll have a fantastic week!

Hugs! Anne

Karin said...

Dearest Lynn!

I love the pictures of you! Your outfit is lovely, it looks perfekt on you. And you are as pretty as i imagined!

I cannot resist kissing my children.
I cannot resist fleamarkets/ brocante looking and collecting things especially old linen and embroderis.
I cannot resist choclate as many others i can see, and a cant resist my cups of tea, several a
day!
At last as you know i cant resist looking in to your blog and listen to the wonderful music, as well as looking to your absolute adorable things.
I love your callender! And ofcourse all other things to!

Thak you for all inspiration and your kind comment Lynn, i am so glad that i can come here and be happy!

Many hugs/ Karin

Sanctuary said...

Divine!!! These are so beautiful! I can't resist another cup of coffee, day-dreaming a little, the prospect of a little journey, picking up a good book, stoking the fire, lighting more candles, jotting my heart out into my diary, kissing my kids... The list goes on.

Lilla Blanka said...

Back again :)

Oh there are many things I can´t resist..when it comes to interior and decorating I for some reason find it very hard to resist a lovely table when I see one on the flea market :)

Other things that I can´t resist are...hugging my kids, and give them a kiss on the forehead, even my teenager..he on the other hand can resist me when I do that haha ;)

Take care...

Ragged Roses said...

I couldn't resist drooling over your photos! My goodness Lyn what wonderful wonderful things! I had to take an extra look at the last photo of you as you looked so much like me! I know all about those squirrels, they;re cheeky little chaps aren't they! I can't resist standing on top of hills when the sun shines and opening my arms wide, closing my eyes and swirling round!
Kimx
Thanks so much for your email, I will try and reply later on tonight, I am on the hunt for that ointment!

Hem och Lycka said...

Ziakoko said...

I CAN'T resist.....
singing in Tesco,
Anything in a baby grow,
snuggling all my children on one sofa with hot chocolates and marshmallows under a very big blanket,
the bit under my husband ear where he puts his aftershave,
stroking fabric in shops,
A room with a view & much ado about nothing,
so many every day fab things....
(very beautiful work Lynn!)

Poetica said...

As soon as I randomly clicked on your blog, I felt a huge sense of peace come over me. Your creations, decorations, and music combined are very serene and most definitely inspiring.
I am curious as to what song you have playing?

fairmaiden said...

You are adorable! You could be a model in an Oilily catalog. You are really so cute!

And I love all the pretties you make. The delicate, sparkle,and soft colors you use...adore it all.

Oh...let me see... i can't resist roses, stopping and smelling them, rubbing their soft petals between my fingers. I can't resist pretty tiny notecards and writing papers. And I can't resist long skirts, I have to have them, I wear them almost every day.

Kate said...

You look beautiful mom and just as im creating something special for you on the 22nd i thought id have a peek on here (no telling thought as to what it is though!!! :-)

Love you lots and im very proud of you and what you give to the world

Sea Angels said...

Love you

serenitymeadow said...

Why, Lynn, you are as lovely as all your beautiful creations. Your outfit is unique and adorable. I remember the post with the Keira Knightly movie and how you loved those clothes. Can't remember the name of the movie. Have a wonderfully, cozy and creative weekend!

serenitymeadow said...

Oh, and what can I not resist doing? Sticking my finger into the side of a cake to have a lick of frosting. Skipping when no one is looking, making faces in the mirror, and I still have a strong desire to climb a tree when I see branches that go on forever.

Nostalgia at the Stone House said...

Hi Lynn,
Well, apart from not resisting your blog; all the beauty and magic, it would be impossible..... I cannot resist smoothing old silk velvets and handmade vintage quilts beneath my finger tips. I just have to touch....

Have a wonderful weekend,
Niki
