Spring Fest With Mum

Hello friends

I'm linking with Mum here for her Spring Fest.

I've borrowed a seat from Woodland Waters caravan park at Ancaster, Lincs. I love the rustic way it's been made.


 I've brought a table decoration. Please help yourself. I made one similar for my nephews 18th birthday last year.

I've done some baking for the cake stall. Some scones, suitable for vegans and those that are lactose intolerant.
How about some flapjacks, also suitable for vegans and lactose intolerant. Last year I won first prize, with this recipe, at the local flower and craft show.


 Some crockery. The teacup and plate are L's picked up from a charity shop. She loves to drink from a china cup and saucer. The cat teapot I bought about 30 years ago (oh my lord was it really that long ago). The jug with the garden flowers in, is very old. It belong to my auntie and was part of a set and I think this is all that's now left. I just love the shape of it. The flower, except the daffs, are from our garden.

How about some bunting. I made this to decorate our summer house last year when we renovated it. L named the summer house Spring Cottage so we made the spring wreath hanging in the background with fluffy yarn and clusters of ribbon flowers a felt sun and a cotton wool cloud. I also made the pictures from felt.
I'm looking forward to meeting up with other bloggers and visiting their stalls. Thank you Mum for organising such a wonderful day. Hic, had some of Janes cocktails.

  1. Carol, I'm afraid I ate too many sweets. I'll have to come back again for a flap jack. I've always wondered about your wreath and now I know its story. Thank you for celebrating with us.
    Love from Mum

  2. I used to be a dinner lady at Baines School in Poulton and I got the flapjack recipe from them.
    I'm looking forward to catching up with the other later.

    1. I look forward to the pate recipe. Hope you didn't hurt yourself tripping over the bunting.
      I think I might have sobered up a bit, hic, oh maybe not.

    2. Mush pate recipe. By Bryanna Clark Grogan.

      1/3 cup porcini mushrooms,1 head roasted garlic,squeezed out of skins,6 oz firm tofu, 2 tbls light miso (I can't get that so I used some soy sauce),2-3 fresh basil leaves,1/4 tsp salt (I didn't use as I used soy sauce).

      Soak mushrooms for 1/2 hr in boiling water to cover. Drain in a fine mesh strainer and squeeze them dry. Chop in a food processor. Add remaining ingredients and process until quite smooth. Pack the mixture into an oiled bowl and chill until serving time. Serve with crackers or crostini.

      This has a refined dinner party type taste...but it also taste great on good old toast!! Jane x

  4. Hello Carol
    Did Mum leave anything to eat - the scones look good maybe there's one of those left?
    Benches are one of my weakness's - I take photos whenever and wherever I see them - the one you have shown looks is particularly nice with all the irregular pieces of wood.
    Take care

    1. Hi Cathy
      No Mum didn't eat them everything. I made another batch of scones. You can have one, would you like some homemade raspberry jam?
      I like the quirkiness of the bench. I like things that are a bit different to the normal.

  5. Please may I take a few of the scones and flapjacks for my vegan son and his lactose intolerant partner, thanks. They certainly look yummy.

      You may.
      I'm not vegetarian but I recently discovered that I'm lactose intolerant. I have to keep remembering to look at lables.

  6. Brilliant idea for a table decoration. I love the china too! Tea tastes so much nicer from a real china cup, especially if it is from a cat teapot! Lesley

    1. Hi Lesley
      Thank you. I've heard that said about drinking tea out of china cups. I can't comment on that as I don't like tea. It's a fun teapot isn't it
