Country Walk in The Sunshine*~*

As Sunday was such a beautiful day (frosty but sunny) Fin and I decided to go for a walk around the reservoir.....

frosty crunchy leaves underfoot..





Sparkling blue skies....




views across the water .....



two men in a boat....


mist on the water....


a tiny little station waiting for a train....



toot toot here he comes....



it's the end of the line....



a friendly little robin stops by to say hello....



time to walk back now.... past the boathouses...




It's getting chiller now ..time for a nice hot drink

It's so lovely to be outside when the sun shines

Snow Babies, Little Deers and a Few Finds*~*

Today I have been clearing out a few cupboards to make space for Christmas goodies and I found these, they were my Grandma's, then passed on to my Mum, then on to me,  the snow babies have always sat on the christmas cake among the snow icing as long as I can remember....


They are sweet little folk that are showing their age now but I shall still sit them on my Christmas cake....

At the weekend while I was out and about I found these and fell in love with them....Little Deers


 
 
I bought four ......Ahh so sweet



Then I popped into the C shop and found a Peter Rabbit plate £1.50....

 
and this handpainted wooden box for £2.00....




 
Just right for my sewing bits and bobs....Thank you for reading my post I hoped you enjoyed it .

Busy Sewing and a Few Finds*~*

I have had some Me* time this week as Fin is away with his job...so what better way to spend my time than sewing for Christmas...




First a little Christmas Angel with a tiny bell on her choker....

Then I made a spotty goose....



With a little wooden heart......


 
 
Here I have sat him in a wooden pull-along duck toy that I bought for a £1 in a  C shop... I love wooden toys

 
 
I also found this pretty dish for £1......

 
 
Then with some scraps of red material I made some apples....

 
I have made Five so far...


And last of all I have made some Christmas tags from scraps, old card and raffia...


 
Milford is helping me by displaying them......
 
 
 

Time now for a cup of tea and I had better have a tidy up....and then I can sit down and catch up with all your lovely Blogs
 
 
 
 

Thank you all for you sweet words I read them all and they make my heart sing...
