"Sew" magazine has a free gift on it ( Nov issue ) it is a kit to make an old fashioned peg decoration.  I have made mine into a ballerina and added a few extras -  well a girl has got to have some jewels ! 

I made this decorative rag doll ballerina some time ago but I still think she is sweet.

This little fellow came from Accessorize in Bluewater.  Yes I should know better but he is rather cute.

On a trip to John Lewis I just had to snap these trees in the car park  Although it was a misty evening the colours are fabulous pinks and oranges quite stunning.

Dumpling stew a real winter warmer.   I got the idea of stirring in spinach leaves from a lakeland recipe.  It's a good way of adding greens to a one pot recipe and just right for the change in the weather.    I will be looking out my gloves later.
Have a good weekend and wrap up well  x

I loved our afternoon out in Rachester yesterday Sally. Lovely to catch up over coffee and cake, and a spot of retail therapy!
The fairies are very sweet, I hope you will put them on the xmas tree.
The red berries are Yew berries - pretty, but very poisonous (can be deadly) so don't have them indoors where the cat could get them. xx

Love Sally xx

I visited your blog today - I saw you on Rustic Vintage Country. The little ballerina doll is sweet, and your blog is lovely. Me and my daughters also have a blog, and we would love it if you could visit us and follow. I would enjoy coming back to visit with you. Your blog is cheerful to me. I hope to hear from you, and have a sweet day.
