Christmas pudding truffles

Another homemade gift... or just to enjoy yourself over the festive season!

My friend Sarah introduced me to this super easy recipe from Nigella (you can find the recipe here) I think I may have over done it slightly on the quantity of sherry, but hey its Christmas!! :)
I didn't use cherries to decorate the puddings, I used those little icing pens making it even easier!

Christmas Cookie Jars

So this year it's all about the homemade presents in my house. Here is a little treat for some of my neighbours and friends.

Its amazing what a simple Ikea jar and a little bit of festive ribbon can do to jazz up some dry cookie ingredients!

I must remember to mention they will need to add 2 eggs and some butter!

Heres how I did it... :)

Christmas is coming!

Here's some fun stop motions I made last year to get you in that Christmas mood!

I love dressing up the christmas tree, this was our best tree yet, it was so big I had to stand on a chair! 


The gingerbread house... I got a bit over excited towards the end and it all got a bit messy but it was fun!

More to come this year... watch this space!

B is for Basket

Here is a boring basket....

...and here is something a little more exciting! I saw a similar basket in Zara home (love Zara home!) but it was £30! This has cost a total of £10... winner! 

A colourful basket is a happy basket :)

Beautiful Bureau

I recently bought my first bureau from a lovely antique shop in Kent. This shop is FULL... litterally stuffed full of antiques! The minute I walked through the door I spotted the beautful bureau... I loved it! It took a total of two hours to convince my husband it was a good buy and I would make it look lovely! Finally with 10 mins before closing time we parted with the cash.

With a lick of paint or two and a pretty door knob from Zara home, it now sits in our hallway so many guests to our house can admire it!

Ahhh... our beautiful bureau :)

New logo

I have a new logo! :)

 Apparently I'm quite indecisive so check out how I eventually got to this logo with this gif
