I completed this project last week in a rush. After making the napkin rings I decided that I wanted my table to be special this year so I needed to up my game.

Isn’t this month just flying by! I feel like it was the first just yesterday and now we are staring Christmas in the face.

Gosh, do you believe it’s December already? It feels like just yesterday we were putting away the Halloween decorations and now we are skyrocketing towards Christmas.

I can’t believe it’s Saturday again. Of course, for my friends who live in the USA it’s Thanksgiving Weekend so…

Who doesn’t love a charm! These four charms can be added to an earhook to make earrings, a chain to make a necklace or a charm bracelet. You could even add them to a wine glass charm or a key ring. The possibilities are endless.

This Saturday it’s cold and windy but I’ve just been to the garden centre. I have some pots on my deck that need attention. I overspent, but that’s OK. My garden will thank me.

I've been very remiss in getting this post up but I thought I'd better do it before Christmas is over and the decorations have all come down.

Bought this really cute fabric at Spotlight yesterday. It's actually Christmas fabric but as it's non-traditional colours I've decided I can use it all year round (sshh - don't tell anyone).

When I think of steamed pudding I think of cold winter days or Christmas and lots of heavy fruit. This steamed pudding is much lighter than a traditional steamed pudding and incredibly yummy.
