The egg had it coming…
I haven’t made any Sherlockian Easter Eggs this year (yet), but here’s a selection of last year’s bumper crop. Featuring the 221 B wallpaper, the skulls of 221 B, the IOU apple, Sherlock’s tea cup and, of course, Bluebell.
I might make some moustached eggs this time around. Happy Easter!

Happy Easter Week! (if you celebrate it, that is)
I am in awe! I can barely paint a flower, and these Sherlock inspired eggs are fantastic! :D gorgeous job!
The first snow of the season and rose black tea
hellomagpieeyes replied to your post: What do you think about (young) knitte…
I really really hate it. Not hating on grannies, of course not, but making out that knitting is something only grannies do is so silly. Anyone can knit!
Yes. Agreed! ^^^ “oh look! Getting my granny knits on!” I teach kindergarten students to knit. Literally I teach five year olds how to turn two pointy sticks and a ball of yarn into something lovely they can actually wear. Boys and girls! So when someone exclaims they are acting like a granny, my knee jerk reaction is “so you’ve finally learned basic survival skills such as cooking, cleaning, sewing and crafting, general all around keeping yourself alive and clean skill sets? The same set of skills we also teach small children? Well gold star late bloomer, your parents must have been so worried for you!” -_- So 5000000% done with stereotypes.
So we got a good tax refund and I’m thinking I’m going to upgrade my laptop (not that I don’t love my 8 year old macbook but…). Of course my biggest issue is:
what about all my stickers? THOSE BABIES DON’T TRANSFER WHAT WILL I DO
Ok, glue 101:
First, use goo gone to safely get the stickers off. This will literally dissolve the glue. So then you need to wipe dry and possibly (and very carefully) give a mild washing with dish detergent and cold water to remove the goo gone, DO NOT SCRUB OR USE ABRASION. Dry completely on paper towels, at least over night. Now the fun part. Get spray adhesive from the craft department. This stuff is sticky as hell. With your stickers face side down, spray the backs in a nice even coat. You get about thirty seconds to play here, so do one sticker at a time. Carefully apply to new laptop with gift card to press out air bubbles. (gently though, don’t want to squeeze out glue goo from under the sticker) now when all your stickers are transferred, if you did end up with streaks or blobs of glue goo, carefully remove them with some goo gone on a q-tip. Because some stickers are just plain worth the effort! :D happy upgrading!
Sherlock Fandom! Send blankets!
The Supernatural fandom is going into shock!!! Hurry!
You can have my comforter with the Tardis on it, or my knit Harry Potter blanket of a snitch zooming past with Hagrid’s umbrella down in the corner. And I’ll go ahead and start some tea…or y’know, get out the good whiskey :P
Oh thank you! Tea with a dash of Whiskey please!
You got it! Maker’s Mark or Crown Royal?
oh anything will do, and maybe skip the tea, huh?
What happened?!? ::gets out multiple knit blankets and my Gryffindor snuggie:: I have lots of tea, and whiskey and rum. Should I get shot glasses or just skip straight to tumblers? ::sets up a tray of oversized tea mugs:: I have fresh baked cookies too, let me get you a platter of them.
Okay guys, here is the dealio. (yes I know that is not a real word but still). My mum has opened up an etsy shop where she sells tea cozies. Since I know we are all tea drinkers it makes sense that we all need a tea cozy. Now, she has recently started making fandom tea cozies. This is her first one since she is a HUGE fan of all things Sherlock Holmes. If it gets a good enough response she is going to start making other fandoms. So, if you would like to finally see some awesome fandom tea cozies that actually keep tea warm you should go and check it out. (drops mic) Emmie out. ( oh, her shop is called Bitts and Bobbs)
