The biggest change here was the frosting, which wasn’t remotely complicated!

Autumn Fruit Picking – Blogtober 2020

Is there anything more autumnal than visiting a pumpkin patch? While it’s a little early to be picking up a pumpkin; this weekend we headed to a local pick-your-own for some autumn fruit picking!

I look forward to visiting the local Christmas market here in Truro every year; it’s always great fun and a great chance to see some wonderful handmade products made in Cornwall. I always try to do a bit of my Christmas shopping here; and there are usually some cheeky samples to enjoy too!

Blogmas 2018 – Truro City of Light

12 Days of Christmas 2017 – Gift Wrapped Hamper

In this post I’ll share some ideas for creating a wrapped hamper with treats or small gifts. I have a great love of wrapping my presents with a particular colour scheme every year, and it’s not uncommon for me to send “mini hampers” filled with goodies to family for Christmas.

I thought I’d share some photos of a wrapped hamper I have sent, to show that there are different ways to wrap and send gifts, at Christmas, or any other time of year!
