days go TOO fast
This gorgeous doll was made by Beth Beglin who brought it to show me at the Silk Stuff workshop last Saturday. She used the Venice Limited Edition and it is so gorgeous. Beth also brought us some wonderful goodies from her business - Pepper Tree Grove - this is from the web - I don't think they have a website but if you are going to York do visit - we have been indulging in chocolates - plum jam -olives and olive oil. Thanks so much Beth.
Pepper Tree Grove is a boutique family business producing and selling award winning Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
We are also York's original producer of a delicious range of handmade chocolates, using only the finest quality Belgian chocolate.
Our other products which we make and sell are table olives, Tapenades, Dukkah, Jams and Chutneys.
We are situated on 5 acres of land, nestled under Mount Bakewell, with four acres of olives planted in 1998-99. There is also one acre of gardens surrounding our 100 year old + cottage, which is part of the Shire of York's heritage inventory.
We bought our lovely property in 2002, which included a badly neglected olive grove. The first 6 years saw us rebuilding the grove into the standard you will see today when you visit.
Improvements to our home and the establishment of a large garden have also kept us busy; the latter will soon be open for viewing by the public
Paragliders and hang gliders are an attraction to our area. If you visit us later in the afternoons on fine sunny days, you maybe lucky enough to see these brave enthusiasts flying over Mount Bakewell.
You are very welcome to wander through our grove and sample our wares.
Taste test our delicious products on Saturdays, Sundays and Public Holidays between 10am and 5pm, or by appointment weekdays. We are only 2.5km (4 mins drive) from York Information Services and have plenty of signage on the main roads to guide you.
We look forward to meeting you soon!
I am preparing for our Open Day - it will be like us at the Perth show - I have been rolling up the lovely hand dyed Evolon - Jacinta is feeding them to me slowly. 50cm x 50cm approx for $6.
Now back to embellishing velvet and flimsies and sewing on more beads.
