How many more sleeps to go...?

I have been busy making lots of cute Christmas decorations for sale online and at local craft and gift fairs.

Hope you like my special tree.

Please let me know which is your favourite and I will make some more.

Have you started making too?

Introducing Spot...

He is a cute pink and yellow stripey zebra specially handmade by my sister.

She has definitely caught the crafting bug.

Amigurumi is her speciality.

My other sister likes to bake.

But we all three love to eat cake... x

The Macro Button...

I have discovered the macro setting on my camera to take close-up shots of flowers and my items for sale.

For those of you who have yet to discover it too...

It's the button normally denoted by a flower.

Hope you like this photo.

Just a few more photos from Italy...

I love how cakes are wrapped like precious little gifts.
They make each customer and each purchase feel extra special.

Ta da!
From a delicious cake and coffee shop right across the street,
we chose a yummy fruit custard tart and a sweet millefeuille chocolate pastry.

There is much more to Pisa than just the Leaning Tower.
Definitely worth a visit. I even found a haberdashery shop.

The Baptistery, Pisa.
Love the colour of the sky. Just like a postcard.

Who needs a Ferrari in Florence...
When you can drive around the city in one of these cute cars?

The wonderful medieval town of San Gimignano high in the hills.
Visit the famous Gelateria there.

Piazza del Campo in sunny Siena.
Venue for Il Palio.

The Duomo in Siena has a beautiful soft pink facade.

And then it was time to check out.
The hotel reception...
It had to be pink!

Arrivederci, Italy!
We will be back soon... x

My fabulous birthday treat...

Wow! What a wonderful wonderful surprise!

A long weekend away in Florence. Mr Mac is the best!

We also visited San Gimignano, Siena and Pisa.

Please add a comment if you would like to see more photos.

We love the gelati! Fragiola, ananas, cocomero, limone, banana, pesca... x
