three

now some of may not have been aware but it was 'national wear a tea cosy on your head' day last week! i'll admit i was only aware as white stuff were doing a competition for it {& selling rather lovely tea cosys too!} so anyways, little O & i got into the spirit of the day {& being the owner of the the only head our tea cosy would actually fit} she did the done the thing & happily posed for a few pictures too!

as i mentioned this was for a competition we entered, which has now gone to public voting, so if you fancy popping over here & giving us your vote that would be just dandy, thank you! {we're on page four - you just need to scroll down a bit!}

i also need to appeal to you all for some more help, due to the lack of sloes round these parts this year i'm going to give blackberry vodka a go this year, i don't have a recipe to follow but was wondering if any of you had any tips? do i use a similar amount of blackberries as i would have done for the sloe gin? more or less sugar? any tips much appreciated!

  2. You got my vote but I am a sucker for a cute baby so had to vote for Millie and Jude as well. Super tea cosy and perfect little model.

  5. I made Blackberry Vodka last year using A Thrifty Mrs' recipe ( Blogger won't let me paste a link, but you should be able to Google it) . It was very yummy indeed. More popular than the Sloe Gin, in fact... laura x

  6. Loving the tea cosy headgear...brilliant.

    Bizarrely or not mrs Knitsofacto has just posted her blackberry vodka recipe in the last day....definitely worth looking at, if only to see her lovely photos and read her evocative posts.
