Autumn is on its way…

It’s getting to that time when the coat is a must on my morning walk now and I’ve noticed the leaves starting to change into gorgeous shades of orange and yellow, Autumn is nearing closer. But I’m quite happy with that, it means chucking on that chunky knit jumper, pulling up your thicker socks and tucking a blanket round yourself on the sofa in the evenings, I love all that cosiness. There’s nothing better than a lovely roaring fire, a sturdy stew for dinner and a good film especially if you’ve been outside all day, either for a long walk or bike ride. Here at Loop the Loop we’ve been busy finding a nice range of cosy treats for your home, which will be arriving soon, like this gorgeous lambswool blanket plus some great log baskets we think you’ll love. There will be more exciting new products making an appearance soon, so watch this space….

All good things are wild and free…

It’s getting to that time of year for one of my favourite Autumn delights -blackberries. For the last few weeks, if not longer, while on walks with the Otti dog, I’ve been scanning the hedgerows and taking mental notes of where the best blackberry bushes are. I’m determined not to miss out on a good crop this year and stack my freezer high with bags of mushy berries. Of course I’m obviously not going to divulge where I believe the best spots for blackberries are around Crickhowell (but I may go for a round of golf quite soon….. )Time to start collecting the ‘nicer looking jars’ from the recycling, (although I do have some lovely Weck jars available on the website at the moment, I could nab a few of those) and decide on what to make. So many recipes -  do I go for jam? crumble? pies? ice cream? so many things to choose from and a lot of berries needed methinks. If anyone would like to share their favourite blackberry bakes please let me know it would be great to hear from you.
