I love making bespoke orders for customers! 

This necklace is made with AA grade dove grey freshwater pearls, rock crystal at the nape of the neck, and a cluster of labradorite, pearls and crystal to finish.......

It's so classy and delicate looking - it'll be great with all this seasons colours and will go great with red, as well as all the neutrals.

The Mill....

Yesterday I was down at The Mill doing my freelance work. 

I love it there as it is such a creative environment, peaceful and rather special.  I don't know of anywhere else that home grows so much stock, including Acers, grafted and unusual Conifers and much much more.  It really is worth a visit.   

I managed to catch a photograph of this stunning peacock butterfly......

and was kindly given these pretty tomatoes by Gordon which he grew in his own garden, which I plan to roast with garlic from my vegetable delivery and drizzle with balsamic, washed down with a large glass of red.

Mias Mars Bar Cake

This scrummy cake is ridiculously easy to make, and I can assure you - does not last long!!! I made 16 generous slices last week and they were gone in a matter of moments and I had nothing to do with it!

Adults and kids alike adore here goes.....

5 Mars Bars
5 oz organic butter
5 oz rice crispies

Chop the Mars Bars.
Melt the Mars Bars and butter together over a pan of boiling water, until all dissolved.
Mix with the rice crispies.
Shove in a 8 inch cake tin, packed the buggars in! (I find the silicone ones work the best)
Chill for a couple of hours (the cake not you)
Slice and watch disappear!
