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.

Hello dude

Thought you might like to see on of my very cute new neighbours. Said "Hi" then, "Bye, seen enough of you, now."

Local Competition

In the book, Margaret and I talk about the simple pleasure of entering local competitions. Well, following our own advice I entered my fruit scones and a flower arrangement in a tea-cup in out summer fete yesterday. Didn't get anywhere with the scones but got 2nd for the flower arrangement. Considering my skills consist of plonking in a cup, I was well-pleased.
