Plymouth Barbican in December


This view could have been taken at the height of Summer. Except with the wind chill factor coming across Plymouth Sound this morning it was really minus 5 deg. I'm sure that sounds very warm for some places in the world, or very cold...
IT FELT COLD!



Here is the give a way I won from Wendy at Wendy Carole's stuff.
I have at last somewhere to put oranges and cloves.
I normally hang them up on ribbon
But as the orange gets smaller they fall out of the ribbon.


So now I have a proper home for them at Christmas. It's not Christmas unless I smell oranges and cloves around the place. I thought Wendy's quilted container really clever.


can even hold nuts............ I hope Wendy is happy that her give a way went to a good home.
If you click and visit Wendy on the above link I know her cat is in the proverbial dog house by the way......


I have been catnip mousing this week.
Eight catnip mice, four for cats and three for the cats next door, except they don't know they have them yet....so shhhhhh.............



The smell of the oranges takes away the smell of catnip......



Well it does for me, not too sure if it has the same effect on Hannah.

I was all set to do oranges with cloves until my husband came back with 11 dollar cloves, ugh, made him take them back;) Need to go to the discount store so I can buy a big container of them for less.
