Weekly Photo Challenge – Nostalgia

I made Blackberry and Apple Crumble for tea – just scrumptious, especially with cinnamon and oats added to the crumble mix. Every Autumn since I was a little girl we have picked blackberries from the lanes and my Mum made just the best Blackberry and Apple Crumble. Every family gathering sees some B&A Crumble on the table!

I was amused to catch a mother catching her son framed in a window of Wheal Coates, an old engine house on the cliffs at Chapel Porth, Cornwall.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Frame

We were in St Euny Graveyard this morning doing a bit more research for our Perthi Kov Project when I remembered this week’s challenge and saw an opportunity to frame Carn Brea Castle and the Basset Monument atop Carn Brea through the holes in a memorial shaped as a Cornish Cross.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Fun!

It has been great fun knitting this little cardigan with multi-coloured yarn and seeing how the stripes appear. It is fun too to imagine one of our expected twin Grand-babies wearing it. Now to get on with finishing off its pair, in the same yarn but turning out quite different which is also fun. This cardigan, like the others I am knitting has little mother-of-pearl buttons from the babies’ Great Great Grandfather, buttons on cards which I have inherited and treasured from my Grandad’s days as a button salesman. So, the buttons, being over 100 years old, are antiques!

Weekly Photo Challenge – Cherry On Top

The Cherry On Top this week was going for a walk after the rain finally stopped and finding some beautiful raindrops caught in webs and on leaves. Click on any photo to see the reflections in the drops and to appreciate the strings of diamonds on the webs in the grass.  For others in this Challenge click this link.
