Five for Friday 


Here are five things I love that I have in my home. 

1. My photo gallery 

2. My coffee table . It has a painted metal house tea light holder and a tray I got from Asda with one of my domes (I use them a lot in my home ) and inside is a ceramic owl. A Yankee Candle tea light jar and a Yankee Candle small jar with saucer and shade. 

3. My painted wooden candlesticks and lantern.

4. My mantle clock. John gave it to me for our 15th Wedding Anniversary and it was brown but I painted it white .

5. My late Grandmother’s tea set . I have the tea pot, sugar bowl and milk jug on a shelf in my kitchen and some of the cups displayed in one of my domes. I love the flowers . I remember it was in my Grandmother’s china cabinet and it was never used.

Friday five


What I have been doing/posting on Facebook this week

1.I sent these pictures to my Sister in a private message on Facebook this morning,it is the two bargains I got from the fashion show and sale last night,it was the fundraiser I wrote about in my previous post.

12219450_10206313840977421_7428534497893265288_nThese cute PJ’s that I am saving for Christmas Eve,gotta have new PJ’s for Christmas Eve! they were supposed to be £8 but when I get home I found out they had charged me £4 so an extra bargain.

2.I posted these two photo’s on Facebook this week as I made some breakfast bite muffins for the freezer, they are basically a crust-less omelette baked in a muffin tin, I use cooked bacon,mushroom and spring onion and I mix with beaten eggs ,salt and a sprinkle of smoked paprika, I then crumble some de frosted hash browns into the mixture and bake in a greased muffin tin, they can be eaten hot or cold and can be frozen and defrosted, these can be packed as a lunch or warmed in the oven and are really tasty.

12232743_10206300003111483_6177266415624940617_oexcuse the messy tray I spilt mixture on the silicone muffin tin,I used a ladle because I was too lazy to get a jug,serves me right, it is quite a deep tray  and I use it for baking and chilling desserts like jelly etc.

12239580_10206300004591520_618366924292923997_nI put an extra sprinkle of grated cheese on top,don’t the look good?

3.I posted this on Facebook ,I got a wrap from Matalan in the summer but am wearing it still because I have some warm moments,I only just realised after months that my insulated coffee cup matches my wrap,doh !

4.I posted pics of my coffee table on Facebook, they little house is for burning tea lights and was £5 from Matalan and is so cute ,it looks great when the tea light is lit.

5.12187806_10206265692613742_6852606881404629852_n I have not been too well and have had a chest infection and one day last week I stayed in my pj’s on the sofa watching Youtube, keeping warm in my snuggly throw that I got from Homesense one of my favourite places for home wear’s.  The table is a little adjustable table I use the laptop or the kids use it for colouring,it was from Ikea I think it was £15 and so handy,

I hope yo like my five, be back soon X Dawn
