You can’t hurry love… or pumpkins!

Hello my friends. The pumpkins are still partially green. We decided not to carve them yet. Halloween will be late in our house. I’ve never carved a pumpkin lantern before, as far as I remember.

SweetContinue reading “Acorns”

Welcome to my patio!

Looks good, doesn’t it with our new patio seating? There’s no way the cushions are going to stay this white but it looks so nice for now. This is my little oasis of calm, surrounded by pretty flowers and hanging baskets. So far we have only had tea and cake on the little table butContinue reading “Welcome to my patio!”
