Baking Before & After

I love the smell of fresh bread. Especially when made by the Mr. He is the King of our Kitchen and no complaints here. It is glorious to come home after a long day of shooting to the smell of fresh foccacia. Here is the before/after. The after is better I think. Enjoy. Xx

Helping Hands in The Garden

These Two found these two in the garden this morning. After breakfast two in my crew crept to get the last of the tomatoes for their lunches and found ready pumpkins hiding amongst the admitted seasonal transition mess. We did hanging pumpkins this year so imagine their faces at spotting these dangling delights. Made their day. In a few weeks I'll make pumpkin soup at their request.

Good Gift Giving/Receiving

I love gifts. I love shopping for and giving. I love sitting and receiving.  It's a timeless act of appreciation. No matter how big or small or in what form they are given, a sincere thank you plus, perhaps, an additional show of gratitude is warranted when on the receiving end. I recently received this gift photographed here Given with abundance and matching style to suit. Simply gorgeous and made from 100% recycled paper. Eco-luxury defined and I felt like I received a gift within a gift. Double gratitude.

P.S. I don't believe in using wrapping paper myself. So sadly my convictions leave my loved ones receiving  a book in a bag from me on most occasions. Still a gift, though.
