St Michael & Carrots



As you might know it’s St Michaels day today & though we have skipped baking a dragonbread this year. Due to health issues I won’t bother you with. We did get creative with autumn finds, some beeswax and cotton yarn in a true Waldorph style...

A Smooth(ie) Toast



Life at Pale Rose is always wonderful, but how you feel about life in general can vary. As it does for most of us I imagine. I’ve been struggeling with feeling a bit blue & though I like to keep things positive, it can be challenging at times...

Dolls and Delights

With all the rain we've been rather cosy inside Pale Rose Cottage. We lighted a candle, drank chammomile tea & ate chocolate biscuits while we crafted. Well, I did anyway. Mom's been knitting new socks & I, as you can see in the photo, have been busy sewing dolls...

Dikkertjes and a Fruity drink

But I will say it once more, we made dikkertjes, small Dutch pancakes a family favorite. I was going to have them with a dollop of lemoncurd, my favorite :) Also a delicious Earl Grey tea. In the afternoon, not long after lunch we had another wonderful drink...

Charlotte & Cherryjuice


It might not be as hot all the time as the weatherman predicted this summer to be. But a cooling refreshment is always welcome, isn't it?! Even if there is a bit of rain and lightnin going on.
