Wished you could join me for a cuppa!




I have just made a banana cake with lemon icing and a cup of coffee ~ I do wish you could join me.


One of the very nicest things about life, is the way we must regularly stop whatever it is we are doing and devote our attention to eating.

  4. I wished you could blog yourself over Nancy.

    Yes, we were really lucky to pick up two lead light windows in an Antique shop. We put one in a previous old house we did up and then when we built our little house - put it in there. The beautiful thing about the lead light is when the sunshines from behind ~ it is so pretty.

    Hugs Carolyn.
