Our blog is dedicated to seasonal living: cooking with local produce (sometimes our own), sewing for the home and searching out vintage bargains.

We believe that most of the pleasure is in the journey - in the making and creating, even if in a simple way.

Shopping Delight

I went to the market hall in our local town yesterday - always guaranteed to bring a lift to the spirits. I looked around. I could see homemade cakes, really nice knitting wool and these...how could I resist. 


  1. Aw i love these plants, every Christmas i recieve one in the post (yep in the post) from a lady whose mother i looked after before she died, ive been recieving them for 10 year now and i'm always amazed when the arrive that she remembers me! The smell is fabulous...but the hubbie is not so keen lol x

  2. I'd love to have some pots of hyacinths in the house but the scent affects DH's asthma so I have to just admire other peoples.
