Winter must be on its way! Hubby P has taken to wearing his Thermals!!
This is a photo of him last Christmas (beards been taken off now! thank goodness!) I bought him these red flannel long johns - with 'bum flap' - just like the 'Old Timers' on the Westerns!
There are other photos of him, but they are - shall we say 'indiscreet'- before he managed the flap buttons!
Anyway - busy busy here! I decided it was time to put the heavier, warmer Winter curtains back up at the windows.

We can then draw them against the cold blustery weather, and snuggle around the fire!

Gave all my sparkly bits and bobs a wash too, I love lighting the candles and watching the flames flickering amongst my gemstones!

I have quite a collection of Amethyst.

Just love the deep rich purple.
Hubby P treats me to a new stone every now and then - 'its my one weakness'!!

Have a good Weekend!


  1. LOL, my dh wears thermals too. In fact he needs some new ones as hs old ones are getting raggedy!

    Do you get your crystals from the little shop at Valley? I got a few semi precious stones from there... all packed away now waiting to see the light of day.

    Thick curtains are great on cold days and my, how cold and windy it suddenly has become!

  2. the curtains look really lovely, a nice shade of green, they look great with those nets as well!
    thanks for the comments on my sewing machine cover, I'm just glad it turned out ok, I've been trying to make three things that I owe as giveaway prizes and they are not turning out right , so frustrating! I bet they think I've forgotten them.

    P.S- And your DH... looks FAB, too!

  4. I have a soft spot for Amythests myself. I daren't have any round the house though, my DS would eat them (on account of the fact he eats EVERYTHING!).

    LOL @ your DH in his thermals. My DH was dragging his out of the cupboard for work the other day. A sure sign that Winter's on it's way.



I do so like to read your thoughts and my blogg-y doings ... Thankyou for leaving a comment.
