This sign above was seen on a wall in Rome. I will leave you to your own thoughts on it . But it does lead nicely to an article I read recently on the  Top 7 Tiny House Benefits  by Hollie Downes. While technically I won't be moving to a Tiny House I will be moving somewhere small after living in a 4 bedroom house. Wherever I go I must get rid of most of my possessions and I am very interested in the concept of the Tiny House and the simple life and non-materialistic lifestyle that accompanies it.

Happy New Year everybody!
I took this salad to a New Year's Eve Party. It always gets plenty of compliments and is very easy.

In the Garden

I can never resist photographing a dandelion seed head. They are so delicate. This one was on P:-)'s front lawn and was taken late afternoon without a flash.

The photo below is the same dandelion taken with a flash.


As I tidy and cull, I come across all sorts of things. I made this brooch about 8 years ago and it has laid hidden ever since amongst beads and half finished projects.

I was quite pleased to find it.
