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.

It is so long since Margaret and I have done any blogging. OK, back now. Earlier in the summer we had a trip to Tideswell, in Derbyshire. There we found some excellent examples of the wonderful tradition (not to mention skill) of Well-Dressing. This is just such intricate and painstaking work -those who are involved deserve credit.
