Hello friends, and Happy Winter Solstice Tuesday!
I’m a bit late posting today due to all the Christmas stuff that has to be done today so that I can relax for the rest of the week. Well it is definitely winter, a top of 3C today and a low of 1C. Inside the house it is a glorious 8C haha we have no heating and we won’t have probably for the whole of winter, so that’s just how it is and let’s move on and not think about it la la la.
today’s art . . .
Today’s art is some mail art envelopes and some stamped kraft wrapping paper that I am using to wrap up some big presents.
There a bit of dodgy stamping on there since I was stamping on a table instead of something with a bit of give in it but I can work around the dodgy bits. Here are two of the presents wrapped up but it was too late/dark to get any photos of the presents wrapped in the other more Christmassy paper.
I posted the last of the local cards today, and so I thought I would decorate the envelopes and give the postman and the recipients something less boring to look at when they are delivered.
Yesterday there was one solitary rose still growing on the top of the rose bush and it was covered in frost. I brought it inside to try and rescue the poor thing instead of leaving it outside to freeze solid – not that it’s much warmer inside haha but at least there’s no frost!
t stands for . . .
Apart from writing out cards today I also made more tablet. Here’s a photo of it just getting started – it requires constant stirring to stop it from burning.
If everything goes well, it will end up looking like this 🙂 This photo is making it look darker than it is, it’s actually a bit paler.
Finally, for tea, I thought I would show you one of my teapots. This is one of those sets where the teapot sits on top of the cup, and gives you enough tea for one cup and a top up – which is not enough tea in my opinion!
Let me know what you think in the comments. Tomorrow I will be Guest Designer on another blog, so stay tuned for that! As always, thanks for reading!Ingredients
