Easter Egg Tree Decorations (Ostereierbaum)

When I was a teen, my sister went to Germany at Easter time on a school exchange trip and came back ladened with gifts of delicate, decorated eggs hung on fine thread. She recounted how it was a centuries old tradition to decorate trees and bushes with Easter eggs, known as the Ostereierbaum or Easter egg tree, and proceeded to hang them on cut forsythia stems.

We decided to make some of our own decorations using some polystyrene eggs, ribbons and sequins we had.

Beach Art

On a wonderfully sunny day a week or two back, we met some friends at our local beach for some 'seaglass hunting'. Our local beach is a great mix of lovely round pebbles and newly uncovered sand, and at low tide we even have rock pools with tiny crabs and sea anemones to marvel upon.

Fresh Start On The Beach

A few years ago we went to Barry Island on New Year's Day and it was the most glorious day; the sun was shining on a perfect, blue-sky Winter's day. When the 1st January 2015 dawned in a similar style, it was absolutely our destination for some fresh air to blow away the previous year's […]

Bosinver Farm Cottages (Review)

Over the past few years we've discovered the curious corners of Cornwall and the wonders of this part of the west country. A truly beautiful part of Britain, it holds some of the most beautiful beaches and quaint curiosity villages I've seen. Traditionally I'm a Dorset stalwart, but Cornwall is rapidly growing on me. We […]

Hive Heating Control (Review)

This post is written by Mr. TBaM who has a keen interest in the working of the Hive! When we bought our house ten years, one of our first purchases was a new boiler. Fitted by a local engineer, he also gave us the simplest thermostatic control system possible: a temperature dial in the hallway […]
