making cosy nests for the cats as the nights draw in and the temperature falls.....


searching for my green coat and finding that Twigs Pigs looks so beautiful sleeping on it

and wearing a different coat......

loving the fact that Winter clothes are gradually being worn

cosy knitwear


wonderful treats from the talented folk over at Etsy


loving the new pendant


the colours are just perfect



reading, knitting, eating cake, laughing with Stephen whilst watching Hot Fuzz, walking the whippets in the forest.......

Hi Tracy, it sounds like you had a lovely relaxing weekend, I'm glad because you've had a really rough trot lately. Also, I think you just may appreciate my latest post on my blog, knowing how much you love your animals too!
Have a great day!

Sounds like such a lovely weekend. Beautiful pendants and gloves Tracy. Cats always find the best places to sleep don't they and you sound just like me, I never have the heart to move them even if the thing they're sleeping on is the thing I'm looking for! Beautiful colours in your photos

Sounds like a lovely time. Hot Fuzz? Simon Pegg? Heaven on a TV in my book.

We were prepping for and holding a three year old's birthday party - all very exciting. Oh, and unpaacking a box from Splat, so finally I can post a package to you!

Your weekend sounds wonderful, I did manage some thrifting, lots of eating. Do your cats really stay in their own beds? Mine always end up with me, taking all the room for themselves!

Those gloves look perfect, especially for someone who dislikes slippery fingers on normal gloves.

The weekend sounds fantastic, I love your layered-look, I've rediscovered the joys of warm jumpers and knee-blankets. Bliss.

Glad to see you back - I am nursing a orrible cold, so sympathy is sent your way for your poorly days. I love those fingerless gloves, perfect for your days out walking the girls!
Lovely pics too, take care x

My DH says that Hot Fuzz is an excellent film and I didn't believe him - just the title put me off I'm afraid. Reading you mention it in the same breath as lovely mittens, and pendants, and sweet sleeping animals perhaps I ought to give it the benefit of the doubt!

Ooh winter clothes - wonderful.

Looks like you had a productive weekend, the gloves are so cute, and so practical.

We went on a steam train! I am such a Geek!

Your pets are so fuzzy and adorable. Mabel likes to curl up in my clean laundry basket! The gloves are lovely, by the way.

Binks looks excellent company, I enjoyed captain ruperts company in the garden

Katie twinkles said...

You are in heaven my friend! How wonderful....
What is Hot Fuzz? who is simon Pegg??

I like the gloves immensely too and the beads and buttons, very reminiscent of the knitting and stitching show. x

your weekend sounds just about perfect...i spent mine doing an 'open house' in the hope of finding a buyer...but i also stole some precious hours shopping at anthropologie with my girls, so i am quite happy :)

Aw, how lovely your weekend sounds! I'm glad you had a good one.

Thanks for your comment on my graphs post - I couldn't stop laughing! The NBM came in to see what all the commotion was about, and also had a good chuckle. Anyway: I'm glad the graphs did serve such a useful purpose :o)

Hi Tracy,
I gald your computers back to normal and you're once again back with us.
The cosy winter nights sound just lovely.
And where did you get that beautiful knit shrug, the colours just gorgeous. Love the pendent to.
Have a great week.

Hugs

We were busy with church fun raisers. Yes fun! A story hour with crafts for the kiddos and later it was for the moms-A Clinique demo of all the new fall colors.( We have a rep in the parish.) Enjoyed your pictures of kitties and am pining for one of my own, but not until next year. Love the gloves with buttons. Wendy

Am loving your gloves, and my hands were a bit chilly today - hmmm. Hi by the way, I'm new to this blogging lark, and to etsy, but have put you on mine as a lovely blog, hope you don't mind...

What a lovely relaxing weekend you had...
I am loving those gloves, gorgeous!

Hot fuzz is a great film, a bit odd but really funny!

Viv said...

Lovely weekend indeed (my next will be kinda like this as will be watching "Hot Fuzz" then).

LOVE the pendant, the shrug but love the little seagull brooch/pin thingy even more - any hints as to where I could get one? I almost bought a "deco seagull" from a shop clearance the other day but was convinced by my friend that they were a bit shoddy (obviously they had been adorning the shop for a looong time)...

That sounds perfect!! I love the way cats like to make their nests in our favourite things-I like to think it's because they like to be near us and our smell!! And the pendent is lovely too!! Enjoy your week xx
