Spring has sprung

My motto this year , keep on blogging !

Spring is trying to spring here on the farm, not that I farm on my farm !  The days of pigs, chickens and beasts roaming this yard is long gone but the beautiful old farm buildings remain.

With Valentines out of the way I'm gearing up for Mothers Day the next event on the celebration calendar. This year I'm making these boxes of four guest sized round soaps decorated with dried rosebuds and pressed botanicals. I get my pressed flowers from a lovely lady in Devon who has an amazing collection and must have an amazing garden.
These are available on my web site at

Better late than never

Another year another blog !


So it's official I'm rubbish at blogging,I had good intentions at the start but just seemed to find it hard to put pen to paper, or should I say finger to keyboard.


Anyway I'm not going to beat myself up about it, I've decided just to update this thing called a blog when 
1) I feel like it
2) I remember
3) I have the time and
4) Most importantly when I can think of something to say.


No 4 is the most difficult !


I'm writing this on Valentines Day and we seem bombarded with hearts and flowers. It's not something me and Mr Jones celebrate, well not since our first years of courtship ( what a lovely word ) when I received red roses and a very padded card, it was the 70's after all ! This year I have made my usual heart shaped soaps adorned with rosebuds, and whopping bath bombs I called Love Bombs ! Not very original I know but what's not to love about a soapy heart.
