I've started making the mosaic at the allotment using my designs of flowers. When using tessara this small it takes forever!! I love the flowers that onions have when left to flower and seed xxo

Brighton no.2

















































On our second day down in Brighton we went to the South Downs which is such a beautiful place for a lovely walk and picnic. After the walk which tired out puppy Pipe, and all of us probably, we headed to the beach for a BBQ which we put salmon, prawns, kale, halloumi, peppers, courgettes on and served this with a cous cous salad and a beetroot and carrot salad. Gaz made most of the food, he is an excellent cook, thank you Gareth! A few other friends came and joined us and it was a lovely evening xxo

Harvest Moon

Ladies and gentlemen we are floating in space



I can't stop listening to this

Christening Gift















We're off to a christening tomorrow so I made a present today for little Ernie himself and mummy Anna. I figure the necklace can be worn by Anna but maybe one day Ernie may want to wear it and I made Ernie his own personalised handkerchief so he'll always remember this special day. I hope they both like them. Happy weekend xxo

Brighton no.1









We arrived at our friends after our long drive down and were greeted by a lovely new puppy, little Pipe and the most delicious meat balls. We had a nice relaxing evening, I taught George how to make macrame plant pot hangers and we took it in turns to pick a song we wanted to listen to x

My gift was from the lovely Evdokia who you can find here at have a ko(o)kie. It's amazing, I am so pleased with everything. Thank you so much xxo

I love the rose red earrings and the fish brooch, and the magnet, bookmarks, photographs. It's all super lovely. I've already worn the brooch, will be wearing the earrings tomorrow and the magnets already on the fridge. I bought some new books whilst in Brighton which the bookmarks will come in very handy for. Thank you again Evdokia xxo you can see more about the swap here on Mina's website.
