Beautiful jewellery

My 11-year old niece has started to make these beautiful silver and leather bracelets.  I think they’re pretty fantastic.   They will be released this week and are now available for purchase and can be made to order. For pricing and availability, please… Continue Reading →

Furniture search … and cafe find

Yesterday I helped Lisa to search for some furniture for her new home.  We started at the Antiques Village in Levenshulme, Manchester. I just love this building for starters.  I should have taken a picture of the floors in the… Continue Reading →

Walk in the Peak District

Badly done, Beluga, Mount Street, Manchester

What a disappointment our “tea with a twist” was this afternoon. I would advise anyone thinking of going to give it a wide birth. It is a brilliant idea, executed very badly. The idea is that they serve “afternoon tea”,… Continue Reading →

More give-aways

Today we cleaned out the store room and there are a few things here too that we’d like to offer to anyone who might be interested, before they go to the charity shop. Of course we would appreciate a donation… Continue Reading →
