We're hoping for a fine day tomorrow to fit the flue and put the flashing around the hole in the roof, then we'll be ready for the snow everyone keeps forecasting for next week. I should be more careful with my blog post titles....
As Nikki and her family are moving from a victorian house to a more modern one with no coal fires she has given us the lovely copper trivet and brass jug (in the pic above) for making our mulled wine.....yummy!
We have also become custodians of her beautiful oil lamp and couldn't resist a try out on tuesday after we had lunch in the summerhouse, enjoying the rare appearance of the sunshine.
This lovely plaque made by one of my grandsons for my birthday last year has been hung at last, isn't it beautiful.
And lastly this lovely hanging ornament is one of 3 that our son Dan and family gave us for Christmas, it was perfect for my special trowel.
