My craft room wish list.

Its been a month or so since I finished the major work needed in my craft room, although the main work is done, the rest is a long way off. Already though, I love to spend as much time as I can in there. As I mentioned, all the major work has been done – […]

Bonfire night: Banana & butterscotch pudding.

  Ahh Bonfire night. Family, fireworks and food. Food is always, in my eyes the most important part of any gathering. This year, just like last we’ll invite family over, we’ll huddle on the deck, gazing up at the explosions of colour, all whilst eating something delicious. * Or it really could end up like […]

DIY: Autumn twig wreath.

I first tried this project back when I lived in Germany, using the array of bushes and trees we had in our garden. Its so simple and cheap, also makes you wonder why the ones in the shops are so expensive. Once we moved back to the UK I cherished it even more, knowing I […]

A family favourite – Carrot & coriander soup.

  Back when TLWP was a online shop, I first dipped my toe into the world of blogging. This little side blog only held a couple of posts, one of them was this simple yet amazing recipe for Carrot & coriander soup. I realised since taking the shop down at the beginning of the year, […]

No sew tutu.

  Mischa has been excited for halloween since… well since last halloween. My girl loves to dress up & this year, same as last year she’s requested to be a witch. Not only that, but she wants me to make her a big fluffy skirt. Well Mischa, i’m going to do just that. I first […]

A very DIY halloween.

  Its officially the week of halloween! We love this holiday in our house. We aren’t one of those overtop types, the ones that decorate every centimetre of their house in fake spider webs & life-size ghouls. But we do like to put a little around the front of the house for when the trick-o-treaters […]

The Craft room re-dec.

I was supposed to get this post up weeks ago, but then I kept buying little bits and bats to add to the room, I was putting it off until everything was finished. Then I realised this would be an ongoing project, I don’t think it will ever be finished.  If I don’t show you […]

Cheesecake brownies.

    As with every week Wednesday was bake off day. Word seems to be spreading amongst friends that I make treats at this time of week, and so we had a few extra visitors to settle down and stuff our faces with my sweet treats, while watching GBBO. Knowing I was having a few […]


  Autumn is my favourite time of year. I do love the beautiful warm, activity packed days of Summer. But I’m naturally a hermit, my home is my sanctuary and If I don’t have too, I’d prefer to just not go anywhere. During the Autumn months, its cold, grey, wet and generally miserable. This makes […]

Boston cream cupcakes.

  I’ve never had a Boston cream pie, i’ve no idea why not. They look amazing, a custard-cream filled cake, topped with a slathering of melted chocolate. It makes me drool at the thought. Every Wednesday Sam’s younger brother comes by to ‘spend some time with his big brother’ (thats code for watch The great […]
