Weekly Photo Challenge – Twinkle

No stars, it was too foggy. Lots of twinkle, though


The South Embankment of the Thames, prompted by the Weekly Photo Challenge. More on Just Snaps

Well, fancy that!


Thank you, dear WordPress, for counting the days! I had no idea that it is 5 years since I moved here from Blogger.


All in all they have been happy years. In fact, the only thing I don’t like is the ‘new’ way of posting. I keep trying it – but no matter how hard I try I can’t do everything I want without going into Classic Mode.

I’m sure it will get better. ;)

Thank you all for sticking with me, I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for you.

Weekly Photo Challenge – gone but not forgotten……


Just Snaps had a post about coffee earlier this week, but today I want to focus on tea! Above are used teabags. The drinking of tea is over – the ritual of afternoon tea no longer possible. These are dried and not yet emptied but waiting with purpose.


Tea contains tannin which is a great aid in natural dyeing. The picture above shows some suitably coloured naturally dyed fabric (dyed with leaves, not tea leaves, aided by tannin). It is for a small project which will hopefully be finished by Christmas. You can see just a part below.


Full details of the Weekly Challenge can be found here. Just Snaps has one too.

It’s Thursday ….. just….

This post was planned for earlier, to link to Just Thursday, even though the picture is not actually linked in any way at all….. However, this and that happened, and I’m just posting now.

This was the view that greeted us this morning.


Is it any wonder that I needed my coffee? How did your day begin?

Hope you will join in with the real Just Thursday? More details here.
