Christmas Preparations


Frozen blackcurrants in a pie my mum made on Friday. I thought they looked frosty-beautiful, so I took a picture before she removed the stalk and added the filling.

A tealight I made using an empty condensed milk can. Remove all labels, fill the can with water, freeze and then hammer to your heart’s content – you can either leave the exterior smooth, or weather it a bit more with a few more highly satisfying knocks of the hammer. I made two holes on either side at the top and made a little handle for it with some thick silver garden wire.
