Everyday Moments - Feeling Festive..

Our eco-friendly handmade & foraged Christmas tree.. complete with embroidered eucalyptus leaves & cinnamon sticks.
A quiet moment of crochet for some special little festive handmade gifts..
And wrapping presents for Tallow's little cousins has never been so much fun.. 
Our first ever batch of apricot jam..I think I've found a new favourite past time.
On the kitchen window sill.. teacups & tomatoes.
In the garden.. Corn & pumpkins growing bigger everyday, hopefully there's some ready just in time for Christmas.

Much Love

    1. Awww you are the sweetest Jane! Always love it when you pop by! And I love even more seeing your gorgeous face and beautiful family in Country Style, what a treat! Adored having a peek into your home. So the daisy cup is a Fine and Sunny purchase! Pop in next time your in town and let me know, so we can finally catch up for a coffee, it's been far too long. Thanks you so much too for your kind words about our jam, it was our first attempt and I'm a bit chuffed with it. The beautiful organic apricots we had to work with made it easy to get a beautiful tasting batch. Much love and Christmas cheer. xx

  2. What beautiful and inviting photos. I swear, I want to bring my baby over for a play date and a cuppa and talk about craft and jewellery and children with you all afternoon! Wouldn't that be lovely?! xx

  3. Beautiful photos, I especially love your Christmas tree and the picture of what's growing in your garden. Apricot jam is one of my favourites, along with plum. It's absolutely divine.

  4. It's lovely to see festive preparations from the other side of the world, the pretty stars rather than snowflakes (which is what I'm crocheting at every opportunity!) xx

    1. Awww thank you lovely! Yes it's funny, I always want to make snowflakes, but it seems a little bit silly in the middle of summer, so I go for stars instead. Would love to see your crochet snowflakes, how lovely! xx
