Good morning Dotties! It has been the most “Spring” like week here! Rain one minute, sunshine the next. Not very conducive for Spring weddings but that is after all the fun of the season isn’t it? A few of the patterned people are gearing up for holidays in the sunnier parts of the world and so it has been all hands on deck to get things holiday ready! I, however, am enjoying the blustery rain- what better weather is there to snuggle inside?

We have had so many fabulous posts across the Polka blogs this week, let’s dive in!
