It begins

This is the first year I've closed on Black Friday.  Our spare room is occupied by coming and going in-laws who are here visiting us and other relatives for the holiday, so the extra day was a welcome respite.  Besides, my new and long awaited stove was delivered today and I'm savoring this time I have to make Madeleines for its Maiden Baking.

Once again we are organizing a Giveaway of flowers on Monday.  Since we haven't had much of a turnout for the previous attempts, I've had Robin at Fyfe Design make a big, hot pink poster to hang in the window of the shop to encourage our walk-in customers to log onto the Blog and take a chance at having a beautiful arrangement delivered to their door on Monday.

The rules are simple: leave a comment this weekend saying why you would love to have free flowers and I'll choose someone randomly on Monday.

The Holidays begin tomorrow at the Shop.  Here are some sweet gifts to consider if you drop by.

Tall, white beeswax tapers, natural tealights and votives.

These rose petal soaps from Indian Queen in Philadelphia have full petals and gold powder through them. Saipua soaps too.


Piglets from Tilla and...

sheep and...

chickens.

Now, let the holidays begin!

Lovely looking goodies. The ceramic animals are very cute, and the natural candles are lovely.
Madeleines, how lovely. I have never made them as I don't have the right tins. Thankyou for your kind remarks. I hope you had a lovely weekend, love Linda x
