Scones and other things...

Made scones for a dear friend today. Do you have a favourite recipe?
(ooops forgot about that no carb thing)

She came and dug up some of my elderberry shoots. I make a syrup in the fall with the berries that the kids originally hated. Now DN2 plans to take it away to uni and sell it for those suffering from coughs/flu. Enterprising little thing ;)

So sad for this little family...

They were just sitting at home watching their beloved Habs when their home was sucked into a kilometre wide sinkhole. How do you explain such freak and utterly unbelievable events like this to children?

Because you mean so much to me...Links with Love

Pip Studio

Similar to Rice with a touch of Cath

Do we like it?

Of course, Rice

Lovely coolers

Adorable bowls

And Tamar. I have been meaning to show you her website for 3 or 4 months now. I received a lovely ring from her during the winter and it is so terribly beautiful. When my manicure is done I will show it off but in the mean time, please visit her, all her items are so charming. She is also a lovely person that treats her customers with the utmost care and kindness.

Hope you liked your links ;)

The May picture from the BBC H&A calendar. Tranquility.

My summer blankets are coming out of hibernation. The big chunky eiderdowns and duvets are going to be put away after they are aired and their covers washed. I have quite a collection of the chenille/candlewick covers now I am thinking I may sell one or two. Greens and pinks are my favourite. The top one is a lovely pink but it looks white in the photo. I am also going to sell off some of my Cath Kidston/Ikea Rosali items this summer. Once I know how much I will need to send off with my daughter to university I will be doing a nice clear out. Waaaay too many linens in this house!

A touch of gardening but not nearly enough done.

Pansy love.

A wee tin I found in my travels and just liked it. I couldn't get the thing opened and it wasn't until I brought it home that I found a length of pink velvet ribbon inside!
Did finally get the Prom dress. Beautiful strapless aubergine coloured full length gown with a bit of a train. Superb.
Now for shoes...
