Is Easter on the way?

I really think that I'm wishing my life away! Here we are not even through January & I've been working on an Easter table for a customer.....I got a little carried away with the choccie Easter bunnies & eggs!

But can never have enough chocolate......can you?.....

I'm done with Valentines day now!

This is definitely the very LAST Valentine piece I'm doing this year....thank goodness it's a whole 12 months until the next one! :-))...Champagne, chocolate cake, luxury chocolates & a couple of long stemmed red very romantic!

Now it's time to celebrate Burn's Night....25th Jan is nearly here, so here's a Haggis, Neeps & Tatties, with the traditional Dirk to open the haggis with,  for all you Scots out there! Have a great celebration!

More mini "love in the air"! where are all these people with romantic "better halves"? If you won't be getting woken up with a romantic (& alcoholic) tray on 14th Feb will you be treated to a decadent basket like this?....I don't need a fortune teller to give ME the answer! LOL

Romance & "all that"!

Romance is in the air early in my house....I might add not on the hubby's side...I think I'm married to the most unromantic man on the planet! Does anyone get treated to this sort of thing on Valentine's Day....if so, I'd like to hear about it because I just don't believe it happens outside of novels & the cinema!

Back to work & it isn't easy!

I'm really not a good blogger am I ......over a month since I managed to my defence though, it has been a very hectic month...there was that thing called Christmas in between. My house swells from the relative sanity of the two of us to 12 for the holiday period & the whole time goes by in a bit of a blur for me! Once they all go it takes me so long to get used to the quiet, empty wash basket & not having to run a 24hr restaurant!
Whether it's because of the lack of noise & bustle around me or just the grey miserable January weather, I am finding it really difficult to get back into the creating mood.....definitely a case of "mini-maker's block"!!
I forced myself back into the workshop yesterday & did manage to make these little you can see my mind is still firmly attached to alcohol!
