Images Around Our Home and Garden

Today has been a wonderful sunny and warm day, after the week of freezing and rainy weather we have experienced, the sun has been most welcome! I wandered around the garden and inside our home with my camera and have taken some photos to share here… I am enjoying visiting the links on Creative Friday, you are all so wonderful and thank you for the lovely birthday wishes for Jen’s 14th birthday on Thursday. Today her little bird flew away out of his cage, she has hand-reared him since he was a tiny little hatchling. It was a most traumatic time, but then she went outside and called to him, she had a bowl of his favourite food (bird nutritional cereal) in her hands and he flew down to her from the oak tree and sat on the bowl! His name is Doug, he has never known life out in the ‘wild’ and doesn’t know how to fend for himself, it is also freezing here at night, so we were all terribly concerned for this sweet little creature. We are so relieved he is back here, safe with us… Erin is down and out with flu at the moment, she has been drinking honey, lemon and ginger tea and taking her homoeopathic remedies, but I can see she feels flat… if anyone has any natural remedy suggestions that have helped to soothe flu symptoms, I would be most grateful to hear them:)

I have listed a new item in our Mamma4earth family shop, some bottle green glass stitch markers, made by my wonderful daughter Jenna.

Happy weekend xo

Corners of My Home…

This is a photo of our classroom where all our learning takes place. Now that we have installed a woodburning fireplace for winter and have sanded and varnished the floor, I can share the finished room with you:)
We have put up our beautiful window stars that we received recently from Garden Mama from all the way across the Atlantic Ocean in the US, they are so beautifully made, thank you Nicole, they really brighten up our workroom and they are such a wonderful size too:)
Thank you to everyone who has placed orders for my Angora Easter Rabbits! I have been spinning Angora non-stop since last night and will continue tonight, (it is soooo soft!) This is my new rabbit, her name is Emily … She will be going onto the shop tonight…

Have a wonderful week everyone…

Back from Holiday!

This past week we were away on holiday in Belfast, but the temperatures were near freezing, so we decided to return early. It was Jenna’s 12th birthday this week too and that is actually why we went away to celebrate with horse riding in the forests etc… but alas, the freezing weather and rain brought us back home. Jen did have a great day however and she really loved her presents, one of them was a beautiful wooden drop spindle with colourful fibre, she loves to spin and really enjoys her new spindle.

Here everyone is singing to Jen, jackets and hats on, it really was freezing, even inside the house!

There is quite a large rocky hill behind the farmhouse where we were staying and Cady, Erin and Kye climbed up to the top…

Just thought I would give you an update on Charlie, he is so big now and loves water….

Jenna’s birth Orchids are in bloom again, she was given this orchid the day she was born by her Granny and every year, it flowers around the time of her birthday. It is more lovely each year…

We have been working on our house for the last few months, fixing everything that needed fixing, this is the front of our home, we have repainted, replastered and replaced the gutters, when I look at our house now, it just feels so much better….

Our new fireplace, this has created such a lovely little space for us in the lounge, the other open fireplace lost too much heat, this closed one is wonderful, lots of knitting happens around this area…

My first pair of knitted socks! I did blog them earlier, but I had just started, now I have taken them up again and I actually turned the heel!! I am so excited! This pair is for Erin, such a beautiful colourway, thanks for helping me with the pattern Carle’ http://www.ourholisticlife.blogspot.com/, your friendship is a blessing, thank you…

I knitted this hat for Jenna for her birthday, it was a free pattern from Soule Mamma’s blog, I knitted it on circular and doublepointed needles and the yarn I used, I also sell, it is Pure Merino handspun Cementwash. It is such a lovely pattern, and really quick.

Winter….

Growth of Spinach in our winter vegetable garden…

Some fibre that has just arrived, I can’t wait to spin this….

My new Maths Gnomes….

This order has already been sold and is on its way to the USA. I am thrilled to have added a King Equals (purple, in the middle) to the little group of gnomes, now they are a complete set at last… I will be adding them on my Etsy shop again tonight, with their King of course…

Have a great week! Thanks so much for stopping by… Off to look after my hubby, the flu is still with us…

Visitors in our Home…


We have recently just discovered two beautiful Praying Mantids that live in our home, the colours are fantastic even though it is hard to see in a photo, I just wanted to include them here. They catch so many flies, they are welcome anytime…
