Gnomes, owl n cake

Just finished using a new circular cake tin to make Austrian coffee cake its delicious and perfect for a cold afternoon. While looking in the shop’s clearance section I also spotted this cute little tea shop tin and some skinny choc caramel syrup for my coffee..its lovely.  This morning I had to buy this lovely mug with a mama deer motif on it as I love reindeers.  Finished crocheting a little owl which was originally a knitting pattern in landscape magazine but I was getting confused with knitting dropping stitches so decided to do a crochet version.  I have finished my advent or treat a month box so just to put chocolates in it now and hide it from my sons.  Last Sunday I went up to Inglenook farm in Rainford and bought this gnome house from a carpenter..I love it as smoke comes out the little chimney from an incense cone put in the door.  Have a lovely week and dont forget to treat yourselves now and again as we deserve it

Happy Tea Tuesday


Tea in the rain

Just had a walk in the rain to Kirkby lonsdale beautiful little market town on the borders of Cumbria. Treated myself to artisan chocolate, a pink sheep scarf and dry jeans!  Walking past devils gate bridge was wonderful with all the rain and stopped off for a rest for a lovely cuppa and teacake.

Autumn gold

finished the cushion its called Autumn gold it is stuffed with the wool Hello Fresh recycling

warming soup for lunch along with some Greek coffee, mint water and a little chocolate from aldi. I remember my parents visiting Symi and bringing these little mugs back for me

we went pumpkin picking at the weekend to the local farm up in Lydiate it was great fun and we treated ourselves to cake and tea too


Yesterday I visited my parents and while we were having lunch we noticed the huge orange sun in the sky apparently the recent storms and fires in Europe have caused the sun to turn orange with all the dust

Last night it was very windy so perfect to rest my feet on this finished hexagonal hygge rug..we are quite lucky here in Liverpool as we dont really get the brunt of the bad weather as Ireland gets any bad weather coming across the Atlantic first…feeling thankful.

Happy tea tuesday or in my case greek coffee

Wok fountain

I was given another solar fountain so decided to use an old wok to make this fountain..just enjoying the intermittent autumn sun

Yesterday at craft group we altered some tins to make nightlights and a plastic container to make a string how they turned out and love the company at craft group too.
