A little gift for Argiebargerina's birthday......... She had been eyeing up a tree brooch, so I thought I would make her a one off with two cute love birds to keep her company during the day! Along with some lemon cupcakes with a lemon sugar syrup and lemon cream cheese topping! A recipe from Peggy Porchen.

I decided on the way home from a music gig on Saturday night that I wanted to share with you my other love apart from crafts.... the music that I love.
You may love them, hate them, already know them or I might have opened your ears to something new for you to love too.

This week I was lucky enough to see Scott Matthew (not to be muddled with Scott Matthews) at the 'Fleapit' in London with less than 40 people in a very small room, ( much nicer than a room filled with 2,000 people who think its fun to throw their half full beer cups in the air). Mr Matthew was un-miked, just the beauty and strength of his voice along with his guitar and band mates cello. It's amazing how music can make you feel. I suppose it gives you hope, amongst all the doom and gloom that life can bring, it can also bring such beauty.....just a shame that on the way to the gig , a little child threw an egg at my back.....hay ho you can't have everything!
I'm not sure if I can add a video to this blog, for now I have given you a link to one of his songs ( not his video!!) Scott Matthew- Market me to children


It all started with this ( handy work by My Husband)!! ............

Which got me making these little fella's ( I think I need some practise)...

Added to a yummy recipe of Pumpkin cake from bbcgoodfood. If you are a lover of carrot cake and bread pudding, its somewhere in between the two ( the best bit is the orange cream cheese frosting smoothered over the top)!
