Hello, sorry I have been away for so long...I left my camera behind on a train, along with my bag with all my birthday presents in and my computer died but I am back on track....
Have been enjoying the autumnal weather
It's perfect weather to go foraging with my little grandaughters
Patience and Esme

I have also been enjoying using my newest tea pot...she is a teeny tiny decorated brown  bettyand she is so pretty and autumnal I am so in love with her.
Have started making quilts for the girls beds for Christmas , not by hand this time but by machine...We try to make as many presents as we can or buy previtntage...pre loved vintage x x x

I have pickled eggs, no mamby pamby white vinegar..we want to wince when you bite into them! And in honour of my grandfather I have got a sweet jar and pickled onions.My grandfather Grampy Uzzell made the best pickled onions and piccalilli in the whole wide world...maybe I will make some piccalilli next year...Right I am off to start  shredding grapefruit skins for some grapefruit marmalade....I am glad to be back and will catch up with all your blogs over the next few days x x x


  1. Hope you got all your things back safely - that was silly though leaving them on the train......
    Ah another memory of Sidmouth. We used to go along the old track and pick blackberries, and look across to our house. Love the new teapot - very pretty. I agree with you pickled onions should be in brown vinegar. Your grandchildren are growing fast. Can't wait to see the quilt.
