Holi, India Also known as the festival of colors and love, this vivid spring festival brings all people together. The social barriers break completely, friend or stranger, rich or poor, men or women, children or elders, Hindu or not, all people come together to celebrate the end of the winter season. And most important to celebrate that everyone is the same!
Chocolate Orange Layer Cake - The perfect alternative to a festive fruit cake for Christmas. Lovely layers of chocolate, sandwiches with orange flavoured chocolate buttercream. It's not Terry's... It's mine!
Whilst we may be wary of the hidden sugar in our food, what about in our drinks? We know the sweet stuff is the majority of our favourite tipples, but it’s not always immediately obvious how much. A single glass of your favourite Sauvignon can contain around five teaspoons of sugar, and, bearing in mind NHS guidelines suggest consuming no more than seven teaspoons of sugar daily, it can really start to add up after a few glasses.
These two felt ornaments would make an ideal festive tree decoration. Each one is designed and handmade by me in soft felt, lightly filled and adorned with floral designs, a wooden button and attached to a braided hessian twine loop for hanging. Measurements: Approx 7cm wide x 8.5cm high Overall length including braided loop is approx 16.5cm. This item is for decoration only and is not a toy.
Christmas Tree with baskets of ornaments - I like the idea of the baskets underneath the tree or around the room - continuing the theme of the tree. I'm not sure where the image is from (note the price tag on the wall decor! *grin*)
Across from my window the full moon"s brilliance is always looming large. Surrounded by carefully hung stars above it and the lighted blue velvet sky. This view is a most precious gift hung from my neighbors windows. They too have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night. ~Linda~
