Well, were in the lead up to Christmas, only 28 days to go, I have said it before, and I will say it again, where has this year gone! This Christmas will be a sad time for me not having my mum for the first time, I still want it to be a festive and enjoyable occasion for my family and friends as I know it's what she would want. I'm planning a really pretty Christmas tablescape using vintage items inherited from my mum, you will get a sneak peek next week.
I'm also excited to launch sponsorship on my site with a fabulous introductory offer so whether your a small store, a larger business or a blogger, please see my Advertising/ Sponsorship page for more details.
This week's inspiration will be the last "non festive" post with the next few weeks inspiration full of Christmas ideas. This week we start with a couple of yummy recipes from Lemons & Anchovies.
Cranberry Bars with Chocolate Shortbread crust from Lemons & Anchovies, this Yummy, gooey slice is absolutely delicious. See "here" for the recipe.
A flour free ultra rich chocolate cake, great for those of us that are gluten free.
Now for something different...I recently discovered a website called "My Owl Barn", owned by Shivani. As an owl lover Shivani has collaborated a beautiful 2013 owl calendar of artwork contributed by well known artists from around the world. I've picked out a few of my favourite owls to share with you. However, you can view more images, read about this inspiring idea and download the 2013 calendar at Shivani's website, My Owl Barn.
These are just four of 43 different owl pictures you can choose from. Either download the complete calendar or pick your owl and month and download individually. Click "here" to choose your owl and download. It would be nice to also visit the artists sites, I have added a link beneath their work.
