Soon it will be the Fire Festival 'Samhain' or 'Halloween', the Celtic New Year.
It is a special time for me, a time put aside from my everyday living, a time to reach out to the people beloved to me, and for me to send my love to them across the mists of mystery, to speak and say, that they are remembered forever in my heart and will be part of me until we can be together again and rejoice.

We go a lot to Hebden Bridge to see our friends, stay up all night drinking hot chocolate under moonlight wrapped in blankets and mucking about in the canal, like children really. Then spend Saturday somtimes wondering down the High Street, pottering about, well today we saw lots of pink ballons, it was Hearts' First Birthday party' can you see the teeny tiny cakes and fab mini sandwiches, and we also had sparkling pink champange in tiny glasses, all made by 'sugar plum fairy' it was divine. I thought it was a great idea for any feasty, festive, thingy, cos you just get scrummy mouthfuls of every delight, and not get greedly overfull, or too tipsy. Loved it.
Then I saw the most fantastic Angel Cake with White Wings, it is ceramic, it is the most prettiest item I own, it kept trying to fly away on the way home, so I have to keep it under glass now, or it may well escape. I have it in the kitchen. I don't know the name of the lady that made it, but if you do, then tell her from me I am thrilled, and that she is very very talented.

I can't help it, even when it's Summer, even now I know that it's too early, I cannot help thinking of Christmas when I come across 'Noel 'super buys.
Friday I found this wonderful.... falling apart , rusty, candlestick, in a junk shop in my lunch hour, (if I put a candle in every holder we are in danger of looking like a light house) then today in T K Max I found the glass cake stand, how could I resist, I could see it full of snow white fondants, or suger topped mince pies. or I could fill it with vintage silver'd glass balls, with a white sugar mouse peeping out.... there is no hope for me, no hope at all.......
