Links and Likes, Lately. 

Im Spreading the Blog Love and adding a few other links in this post. Enjoy!                       

How lovely that Roots and Toots has baked her Hollywood Idol’s own recipe for Chocolate Brownies. Yummy!

Also in Blogland I’m loving Rike’s little piece of cyberspace, as much as ever. She not only poses in stunning vintage frocks, she makes them all too. She writes her blog Draped in Cloudlets in both her native German…. and English.

If Rike could dress a star, I suspect she would love to drape the delectable Eva Green in velvets and ruffles, especially as she is currently starring in the new Tim Burton movie Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children..  I do love a Tim Burton movie and this one I am especially excited about, as I am currently reading Ransom Rigg’s kooky and strange tale. 🙂

Who is going to Yarndale this weekend?  The Yorkshire Dales town of Skipton brings together over 180 exhibitors over the next two days, all keen to share their passion for wool. Expect to be Yarn bombed on arrival. 🙂

Joanna Lumley sees dancing cranes, cherry blossom,geisha and snow monkeys in Japan.

If you have ITV Catchup it’s worth watching the Fabulous Joanna Lumley in Japan. She is a wonderful tour guide to this most mysterious of countries.

I was yappy to discover Man About A Dog Blog  and am following adorable hound Grenson on his amazing pet-friendly glamping trips , with some envy I admit.

Bev has put her own unique twist on Toad In The Hole.

And here’s a lovely post about The Art of Letter Writing  on Vintage Flicker.

However I’m tempted to join www.postcrossing.com , just so I can send and recieve random postcards from all over the world. Sounds like fun to me!

Snow dogs by the Sea. 🙂

 

The Snow Dogs By The Sea Art Trail in Brighton & Hove has been inspired by characters from the beloved animated tale ‘The Snowman and the Snowdog’ by Raymond Briggs.  The colourful Snow Dogs Sculptures will be scattered around the area from 24th September and  eventually auctioned off to raise money for Martlets Hospice.

Thanks for reading, and have a great weekend!
