New Lambs for Spring


Isn't she cute? About 18 hours old...adorable...


We had twins - one male and one female - born to Ewe2 - last Tuesday - feeding well and already filling out.


They love climbing


And this single female was born to Bleat (Ewe2's mum too)


Very clever of the sheep to have their babies in the sun instead of in previous years - snow, rain and hail.

Just thought you might like to see our little lambs - we only have two ewes at the moment, but just enough to keep our acre of grass nicely trimmed.

Vintage French Poster - Fairground and Circus








Now sold

This is a great vintage poster from 1950s France - would look great in a child's bedroom. My favourite part is the patisserie - how very French, to have a baker's stall at the fairground!

My kids have long-grown out of posters other than hard-rock bands, so I'm putting it into my Ebay shop here.

A few personal items for sale



Sadly, now sold (sniff...)
Gorgeous pair of French door knobs - never got round to fitting them as our door knobs are already rather nice!

sold
A pair of old curtain pole supports


and another pair, a little smaller, or can be used as curtain hold- backs

sold
And these are the metal spikes which hold up the supports...difficult to get nowadays


This is a large game pie tin - great for raised pies too

Now sold

You just pull ot the pins and the tin comes apart which makes removing the pie easy-peasey!


I've been having a sort out of my own stuff - we really, really, have to thin out as this old house is just too big for us - we only use half of it for goodness sake! And, when our daughter goes away to lycée in September, there will only be us and the animals...

So, I am selling surplus to requirements - things which I never got round to fitting or using. I reckon it's going to take ages before we will be able to put the house on the market, but little and often, and we'll get there...

If you are interested in any items, just click here for my other Ebay page.

Have a good week!

So that's what they do with their paws...




A tidy cat - feet safely tucked away.....
