Day of fruit picking, baking (and eating!)

It was a lovely sunny morning today (until it rained later on...) so I have decided to take my little daughter fruit picking - again! We have been about 3 times in the last couple of weeks as I love it! The strawberries taste sooo delicious and are really sweet. My daughter was less enthusiastic as you can see from the photo, she found the hay around the strawberries very comfy...

Anyway, we picked some strawberries and also some raspberries and because we had so many (I got a bit carried away picking) I decided to make some Raspberry and white chocolate muffins. They were yummy, here are some photos.

Here is a link to a similar recipe from Nigella Lawson:
And on that theme, I will be doing a Raspberry themed Folksy Friday treasury tomorrow.

I have also decided to bake some Nectarine cream flan, you can see some photos on my Personalised Photo Jewellery blog shortly.

Do you have any special fruit recipes you would like to share?

FREE GIVEAWAY: Sterling Silver Necklace personalised with your name worth £16.99

Do you fancy a free Sterling Silver Necklace personalised with your name? I will be giving one away when I reach 50 blog followers in total from both of my blogs (Personalised Treasures and Personalised Photo Jewellery).

All you have to do is become my blog follower (the 'Follow' button is on the right hand side bar) and leave a comment on this blog commenting on my personalised jewellery (here is the link to my Folksy shop). Please write what changes you think I should make that would make you buy my jewellery. Write what you like and don't like, I'm after constructive criticism.
If you already are my Blog follower, you will be entered automatically (although you can still leave a comment about my jewellery).

The winner will be drawn out of a hat (physically!) by my 2 year old daughter when I reach 50 followers from both blogs in total. If you follow both of my blogs you will double your chances of winning as both entries will count. You will have the option to choose the name or date that you want stamping on. For detailed description of the necklace, click here.

Please make sure you let all your friends know about this Giveaway,  for them to be in with a chance too!

Thank you & good luck!

Welcome to my new blog.
I have set up Personalised Treasures specifically for my hand stamped personalised jewellery collection. This range was previously part of my Personalised Photo Jewellery shop but I felt that this shop title didn't sum up my range of products so I decided to sepate them. My photo jewellery is now sold through Personalised Photo Jewellery shop and my hand stamped items have now this brand new shop.
I have set up a new website @ and also have a new Folksy shop @ So please check them out.

I offer personalised jewellery stamped with your names, date, initials or a short message. I have a wide range of sterling silver name necklaces and my latest additions are personalised message keyrings made from solid copper ideal as 7th wedding anniversary gifts. Also available is a small range of personalised jewellery for men including bracelets and necklaces.

Once you purchase one of my personalised jewellery items, all you have to do is email me a message or name to be stamped on and I will do the rest and create a beautiful personalised gift for you or your family and friends.
All my items are supplied in a lovely gift packing ready to be given as a special present to your loved ones.
