Making Blinds from Nothing....*~*

I have been a busy making blinds and pelmets for my little house....from an old curtain that used to hang in our cottage.
 I made it in 2006 from Laura Ashley fabric..


So now at last (2015) I have made a "new" blind for the kitchen window...


a pelmet to hang over the french doors...

and had just enough to make a mock blind for the door...so glad I kept it
I am on Instrgram now too....love Thea xx

Time Ticks on so Quickly *~*

I am so shocked to see it has been 6 months since I wrote a post (thank you all for your kind words) yes I am fine and very happy...I just have had loads of things to do, at first I thought I would just have a little break
Then out of the blue I started a little online business, and it really took off big stylee!
I have now stopped for a while to take some time out until next year... Phew!!
 So at last I have had time to slow down and do a little Christmas baking
While listening to this..
and eating these .. satsumas (I love them)
Time to get my little house ready for the Winter Season...love Thea xx

Double Busy!! *~*

Ooooh it has been a busy time in my house...after a wonderful few days away (just Fin and I )
My daughter's little girls had their christening this weekend...
I made the cake....top tier sponge cake.. bottom tier fruit
It was a little tricky as it had to travel ...so wooden skewers had to be inserted

I made them Angels...

They were as good as gold.....Bless xx

A Visit to a very Unstately House....*~*

Calke Abbey,Derbyshire is a very unstately house....we paid Calke a visit a few weekends ago
The servants had long gone.. the house had been left in its state of decline, the owner had run low on his luck and his funds, no family to inherit his house and land....(he left it to the NT )
It was fascinating to see rooms full of furniture not in any order but just stored as ( junk )
Books everywhere...
Children's chairs just left in a corner along with the hip bath...
Toys just left... looking just like the little person had popped out for something and would be back any minute...
The dining room has been renovated to show how grand the house had been in its heyday...( NT image )


The grounds were vast and sweeping ...Cowslips growing as far as the eye can see...
Garden buildings packed full of the past....
A family of Scarecrows waiting for their" big day"...
dilapidated hot house....
Glass houses full of Geraniums...

A theatre of Auricular dancing in the sun ....
A house full of questions and home full of the past...fascinating
Thea xx
