So on to today..woke to the first frost of the season. A soft coating of white on the rooftops of the cottages opposite me. There was a lovely smell of wood smoke all around, emanating from my chimney in particular, and wreathing the house in that yummy autumny smell that is so good in the crisp weather. Freezing cold mind you and too cold to sit out with my morning coffee now.
Halloween is fast approaching now and I purchased this fab item from ebay last week. I had no idea at first how to make it primitive and shabby, but the lady that sold it to me was very helpful, and this is the work in progress. All I need now is string, cobwebs, cinnamon powder, a one legged witch! Waiting for the paint to dry before decorating it. Will post a piccy when finished.
We celebrate big time here and my little one always has a party with her friends. I am in the unusual position of having an old graveyard in the middle of my woods. It was once the burial ground for the local methodist chapel (now a private home). There are only a few headstones dotted here and there indicating what it once was. For such parties, it does lend a certain air to the proceedings I must say. I took part in Heidi's Halloween swap, and am eagerly awaiting my goodies from my partner in the USA. The postman has already been today, so now I must wait for Monday's post. I am not very good at this waiting lark...sigh!
Shopping in Canterbury today and look what I found in one of the posh department stores. CK goodies, yummy, yummy, yummy. I have wanted one of these tins for ages and it was the only thing in my price range. The pyjamas are gorgeous but they don't make them in elephant size and they are nearly £48!!
I have been tagged by dear friend Marja, so here goes:
5 things in my freezer:
Half a lamb (I work with someone whose father has a small holding).
Sloes for making sloe gin.
Potato wedges which I love with soured cream.
Ice lollies for my daughter, despite the freezing weather.
5 things in my closet/wardrobe:
Tin quality street chocolates, hidden so as not to be eaten before xmas....!!!
An embroidery frame.
Brownie outfit, washed and ready to put on ebay.
Molton Brown Heavenly Gingerlilly, again hidden so only I can use it!
Ohh...and a few clothes!!
5 things in my car:
My gorgeous collection of CK shopping bags, mind you I find them hard to use in case they get dirty!
A cushion...not sure what for, but hey you never know when you might need one.
Halloween goodies, so they won't be eaten before hand.
Empty crisp and sweet wrappers from my darling daughter who thinks they find their way into the rubbish by magic!
5 things in my purse/handbag.
lip balm...and a trillion other things that I may need..sometime..maybe..just in case.
I would now like to tag : Denise
