Got tons to do here at the moment and feeling streeeeesssssssed.........    But yesterday went out and saw this -  


And gold?  

Well, in December's Easy Living magazine, there's a free gold (or silver) 'make up bag' (I've put this in inverted commas, as it seems better suited to being a glam pencil case to me) - 

Not a good photo - but the case is cute :)   The mag has some good Christmas recipes in it.  Like a meringue yule log -

Stollen (mmm, yummy!) -

and (drooling here now!) - raspberry and rose chocolate wafers - 

 And treasures?   

I had a huuuuge sort out of my boxes of stuff (for my stall) today (exhausted now!!) - and found quite a few things I'd forgotten about :)   - like this gorgeous cup and saucer -

And pretty plate - 

More cups -

This set is missing one tea plate :( -

Pretty dish -

And on the way back from the Post Office earlier, I got this retro plate from a charity shop, which I love (a keeper this! ) as it matches cups bought a while ago -

Have a good weekend!


  1. Lots of lovely pictures here especially all your finds.

    Have a great weekend.

  2. Love the first cup and saucer and the pretty plate. Know what you mean about stress, I seem to be constantly running around (but never lose any weight!!) Hope you can relax soon when all your jobs are done.
