Christmas cookies....

The festivities are almost upon us so why not enjoy baking some seasonal sweets for your friends and family... Here are some of the prettiest cookies for you to enjoy making this Christmas. Note that presentation is everything, so make sure you spend a few extra minutes presenting your handmade fancies.

I'm not sure I'll have time to make any of these beautiful biscuits this year having spent all my evenings and weekends making Christmas cards & luggage label gift tags, our Christmas wreath, Christmas cake and chutneys for all the grandparents. Wow listing them out like that actually makes me feel like I've achieved something... sorry if I make you feel like you haven't. I hope you are all enjoying the wind down to Christmas, not long to go now!

Picture Perfect

The title 'picture perfect' conjures up two very distinctive images for me... one involves the rather mediocre yet stunning actress Jennifer Aniston, and the other quite simply, splendid photography. Cassia Beck is the latest photographical genius to rock my world.

Dreamy, feminine pastels with each print creating its own nostalgic story - i love them!
