Waking up................










Mother nature is waking from her winter slumber.......
All around 'St Biddies' we are seeing the beautiful
signs of spring.
The trees in the orchard have soft little blossom flowers and the 
ground is covered in daffodils, grape hyacinths and blue bells.

Picking a few I made a crown of
Spring happiness.....and popped on the very pretty pink
1950's dress I got from
June Loves Fred
at the Vintage Roundup.

With the sun-shining......
and a spring in my step.....
today was 
splendid
day.

Best wishes

Mad Bunny Cake Maker................












My lovely friend Jo gave me a truly scrumptious 
recipe book....
filled with yummy simple whole food goodness.


has been waiting patiently for me to put aside some
time to attempt one of the fantastic recipes....

Inspiration.

Now my good friends know I do love squirrels, but 
the thing that makes my heat melt with  happiness is 
bunnies......

So what would a bunny make???
Yip....carrot cake!!!!

oh my gosh.....its so good!!!!

Through the looking-glass.............












Getting ready for the market on Saturday.....

The looking glass drew us in.....

And what did they find there....


One thing was certain, that the grey cat had had nothing to do 
with it : it was the two squirrels fault entirely.

Move over plants.............a squirrel invasion.....













Warren has created a new workspace in the
glasshouse for drawing and painting, 
its so warm and has the perfect light.

I snuck in today to make some hair clips from
vintage earrings ready for the 
next weekend.

Its also a wonderful space for 
a business meeting
with tea and cookies.
