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.

We had a fun time on Friday for the royal wedding. I fastened up some hastily sewn bunting while Les constructed the new BBQ. All done just in time to enjoy the excitement of the big day.


  1. It all looks very festive! Hope you had a great holiday weekend!

  2. Wasn't it a fabulous day? I was up at 5 a.m. to catch the atmosphere before the ceremony and Kate looked stunning in her gorgeous gown.

    I talked to my sisters at home and one had a wedding party at home and the other was at a street party. It's at times like this when I wish that I was there.

    Glad to read that you were able to enjoy a celebration of your own.

  3. Glad you had a great day. I was on my own, but still enjoyed all the celebrations. My OH went fishing! x
