Pretty in Pink

Such a shame that peonies only last a couple of weeks, in all their ruffly beauty.  Their delicate petals, so like the tissue-paper flowers we made as children, and yet so bold in their exuberance.

Clothes Swap and Tea

Just held a spring/summer clothes swap and afterwards, served an English tea with loads of treats: a chocolate chai cake, and vanilla rose cake, meringues and of course scones with jam and Devonshire cream. Clothes swaps are great fun and a wonderful way of recycling clothes and accessories. After all, who doesn't like to have new things (to them) in their wardrobe and not spend a penny!
