Thanks for visiting. GM
I hope you had a lovely weekend. We started a kitchen project that involves covering (painting) the wallpaper border and putting a new one (not as wide) over top. Don't know if it will work but if not we'll have to go to Plan B. When I chose this border I wasn't sure if I liked it but decided I'd see how it looked once it was up. That was at least 15 years ago!! Time for a change.
Thanks for visiting and leaving lovely comments. They brighten my day. GM
Almost forgot the teacup. This one has Pussy Willows.
Now that the Christmas things are put away it's time to get some pink out for February.
Teacup made by Royal Stafford. The little plates don't actually match the cup but they're close enough.
Thanks for coming by today, GM
Lately I have been unable to post a comment on various blogs. Today it's Furry Gnome's blog and also Catherine ( My Home & Garden). I find this quite frustrating.
Not much to blog about so I thought I'd post some Monday-ish pictures from Pinterest.
I did bake scones on the weekend. As usual no two were the same size ( but they tasted great)..
I chose a teacup with Daffodils as today's teacup. It was made by Roslyn.
I'm starting today's post with some sweet pics of GD Kate's kitties, Remington and Ruger. Ruger, of course, is Miss Kitty's offspring and one of the gentlest of kitties. I'm glad those two get along so well.
I hope you're having a lovely weekend. It's quite mild here today, 10C just past noon. When we walked at 7 the lake was almost hidden by mist. It was lovely but eerie.
It's a lovely sunny afternoon and M came to ask if I had any sparklers as he needed some for a science experiment. We looked and sure enough I had some. Then he asked if I'd come outside and watch him, which I did. He started with the BBQ lighter but then Grandad brought out the torch and it went from experimenting with sparklers to seeing if the plastic cup would melt. Which it did.
Since it was so pleasant outside ( 7*C) I thought I'd cut off the old Hydrangea heads that didn't get done last Fall. Now it looks much better. I noticed that the Hellebores are showing new growth and I must get the old leaves cut off in the weeks to come. (That's them further down the path).
Today's teacup is by Royal Chelsea.

I have made Pfeffernuesse cookies for many years but they were different from the ones that Karen made ( and posted about on her blog Life is Good). She also has a blog called Karen's Kitchen and that's where I found her recipe. The picture below is her picture.
These are the cookies I made and they don't look as pretty as hers but OH MY but they're good.
I didn't roll mine in icing sugar preferring to make a thin glaze and pouring it over the cookies once they cooled. I'm definitely going to make these again next Christmas.
This bear, Lydia, sits on the bed and keeps an eye on the other bears, the ones that sit on top of the wardrobe.
