Treats and Eats.....

Hope that you all had a lovely weekend!!  Happy New Year too - the Chinese year of the tiger, mmm..... could be an interesting year, depending on your sign of course!

Thank you for the kind messages for our Anniversary, we went out on Saturday evening to our lovely friends J & S who cooked for us, what a treat.....as we are not in a position to able to afford to eat out, it was lovely to have a meal cooked for us - and no danger of falling off my Dottie Angel Challenge wagon either!!

So, that was EATS - now on to TREATS.....

My darling found this for me....


As I am a HUGE Tilda fan this has been on my list for a while and he found it on ebay!!! I have investigated if ebay is allowed on the challenge and it is, so phew.....

I did squeal in the most unbecoming fashion when I opened it!!  I have already identified a few projects I would like to do, though I am not sure how they will turn out; if you want to see fab Tilda things you should check out the lovely Pixie at Faerie Nuff (she is on my blog list), she is very talented and makes very needful things!

Then my Mother and Grandmother produced the lovely bottle below!!

 
Treats!!!

Oh my goodness, they know that I have a weakness for the bubbly stuff - but not the means.....So we were very grateful!!  

I hope that you all had a lovely Valentine's day too.....

Warmest Wishes for a Wonderful Week,

I've often looked at that book on Amazon and wondered what it's like!
Glad you had a good weekend! When are you at Topsham again?

Hello Cally !
Is this Tilda's book nice ? I've got the "Christmas Tilda" book, nice things to make :-))
Est-ce que les modèles sont (assez) facile à réaliser ?
We had a nice meal too for Valentine's day :-))
Bonne semaine !

Bonjour Guenievre
j'espère que tu passe un bon St.Valentines avec votre mari, je ne comprends toujours les instructions de Tilda! Mais je trouve cet livre plus facile.....wish me luck!
