...for some tea & cake! I haven't done much on the domestic front for the past 6 weeks or so due to brokenfingeritis, but now that the splint is off I can do more. I haven't baked a cake for ages so I thought I'd whip up a coffee cake for afternoon tea.
The Boy loves his cup of tea when he gets home from school & of course you have to eat something with it after all those hours of using your brain & learning things!
I like to see a cake in my glass cake stand with dome - it just looks so very civilised don't you think?
So, perhaps you'd like to join me for a slice while I tell you a bit of my latest news?
As you know, I have an online shop which Mr Cottage created - he did a great job but the shopping cart software that we had wasn't brilliant so he decided to do it all again & has been working on it for the past couple of weeks - he calls it his "second job"!
It all looks very nice now - a bit different from before with a few new & improved features such as multiple photos, a search box & a mailing list.
One of the things I have been working on are my new range of Coronation Candles - these are natural soya wax candles made in vintage Coronation & Jubilee cups & mugs - some are genuine antiques dating back to 1902. You can find them here.
As an introduction to my new shop I am having a giveaway - everyone who has joined or joins my mailing list (on the home page) this month will be entered into a draw for the Coronation Candle of their choice.
I thought I'd just offer you a peek of some of the new goodies on offer......
