Merry Christmas

Christmas Eve and I just wanted to wish all of the bloggers and blog readers out there a very Happy Christmas and thank you for following the Ednovean farm blog throughout the year. If you missed my latest blog post running up to Christmas you can catch it here and see my alternative Christmas tree!

That's is all for now (I forgot to buy the Parsnips for christmas lunch so a mercy mission to salvage Charles Christmas lunch is called for!)  so Let us all wish for a joyful and peaceful Christmas and a new year full of hope and purpose.

A little bit of Christmas magic

The Dining room at Ednovean Farm

You know these cold dark morning call for a little bit of Christmas magic to start the day. Our old farmhouse just lends itself to this time of year and never looks more beautiful than when the candles are flickering overhead. I've hung metal chandeliers  from the high beams above the Dining table and sitting room in front of an old overmantel mirror (a sale room find) to double the impact and then I line the window sills with fat church candle. I took a few snaps after our guest had left this morning before I cleared the table - I think it gives just a little romance to sit together in a weekend break from their busy lives and just soak up the old building.
P.S Please excuse the washing up!!

After Breakfast

breakfast is a relaxed affair with an eclectic mix of china, candles and brown
sauce if our guest would like it!

The dining room window sill lined with fat church candles
and oversized baubles piled in a fruit bowl for extra
Christmas glitz!

If you didn't catch my Christmas tree deliberations in my other blog you can read it here for extra inspiration to start your decorating this year. Happy Christmas back soon !

Autumn or winter - there's always something new in the garden

I love the way that even if it is late Autumn (or today i suppose I should say early winter) that there is always something new to catch your eye in the garden.  This morning, for instance,  I spotted this glorious Datura flower, on a raised bed, with the sun streaming through the petals with its companion a sweetly scented Mahonia.

If you've been following the Ednovean Farm garden then I've just written my monthly garden diary over at my new blog. Why not pop over to explore a Cornish garden in November
