I have been able to knit since I was knee high to a grasshopper. I have to confess though that I haven't picked up a pair of knitting needles for years. That is until I discovered these little beauties. Aren't they just the cutest knitting needles you ever clapped eyes on. I bought them from a web site called Laughing Hens and they are Art Viva hand made needles. Each size has a different coloured end and I wanted to buy the whole set but they are quite expensive.

There are many more lovely ladies out there who make me smile, make me laugh out loud, make me think,make me want to create something beautiful. So to all of you I pass on this award.
I also need to pass on a previous award given to me by Wanda called The Power of Schmooze. This is for people 'who effortlessly weave their way in and out of the blogosphere leaving friendly trails and smiles, happily making new friends along the way.'

Yesterday I was feeling slightly under the weather, didn't feel up to doing very much at all, so I sat a while on the sofa, thoughts idly wandering, drifting, daydreaming. You get the picture I'm sure. I looked up and saw a rainbow....... or to be more precise a reflection from the crystals in my window. Of course I have seen this pretty sight many times before but today I thought I would try and capture it on my camera.

Another apple pie waiting in the kitchen to be consumed with great gusto later today. So comforting at this time of the year, made with well sweetened Bramley apples and rich short-crust pastry made with butter.
Bye for now,

Today has been one of those grey and dreary, lowering to the spirits sort of days. The air was very still and try as I might nothing helped to cheer me up. So I got out one of my magic wands, waved it around and knew what to do. Of course, take some photo's of pretty things. This fun wand reminds me of a magical evening a few months ago when Zoe and I, together with two more friends went to the theatre to see "Swan Lake on Ice". I bought the wand as a souvenir and it always makes me smile, it flashes with movement but one evening, rather spookily, it started flashing when no one was near it!!!

It was a glorious day here on Monday so I took the opportunity to photograph a few late blooms in my garden. The rusty cauldron is one of my favourite things........after all, where would a witch be without one? I love the contrast of the pretty pink Penstemmon.
