red & white

I seem to be having a "thing" for red and white at the mo
here are a few snaps from my week

Little warm apple pies
recipe from here
I have just popped some vanilla, hazelnut and brown sugar shortbread
 in the oven from the same book too, it's smelling GOOD

Still picking a few raspberries every couple of days

A sneaky peek at a special commission I have been working on

I have indulged a teeny bit of red & white retail theray
from here

they are so cute
looking forward to their arrival

Well ..... I must be off
I have fresh coffee at the ready
 and a date with Miss Singer
we have advents calendars to finish
and plans for some Christmas birdies very soon
OH YES ..... the Peckers are returning with some winter friends
watch this space!

Have a super dooper weekend
BIG love
