Mend, Mend, Mend!

We have recently added many lovely vintage threads and wools to the shelves of our Sewing Room.  Beautiful colours for mending, darning, embroidery, sewing or display.  When the lure of the Great Outdoors is not quite as tempting during these cold, grey days, now is a great time to get on with that pile of mending or sewing projects that have been stashed away for a rainy day.  The perfect time for a spot of "Make Do & Mend" - A New Year, new month, new resolutions, but old threads of course!

Flora & Fauna

A quick wander round the garden this morning, revealed emerging shoots, bulbs and beloved primroses braving the elements and mustering their strength to face the elements.  Whilst the temperature seems to be plummeting, these reassuring signs that all is well in the garden and Spring may well be on its way offers nearly as much comfort as the custard creams in the biscuit tin!

In our Library at the moment we seem to be gathering our own little Nature table with all manner of books.  Our little nod to the oncoming months and the delights that await us.

Happy New Year!

A rather belated but heartfelt Happy New Year! A huge 'thank you' to all of the lovely people that have visited us over the past year and a big 'Hello" to new and returning friends.  We wish you a healthy, happy, peaceful and rain-free 2014 (not completely rain-free you understand, just enough to stop us from being permanently soggy....

As life slowly returns to normal, The Grotto has retired for another year, tinsel and glitter have been swept up, the biscuit tin replenished, the Shop doormat swept and some new goodies placed upon the Shelves.

We hope to see you very soon.
