    Christmas has been a bit too much fun for homeshoppingspy! I’m looking forward to returning to regular blogging next week. Meanwhile, here’s a few things I’ve enjoyed from a Christmas in South Devon:

    Blackpool sands, South Devon, coastal walk, coast, beach, Christmas, ideal home, homeshoppingspy, alice humphrys

    1. A blustery walk along the coast to Blackpool Sands for pasties and chips on the beach!

    (clockwise from left) 3. Nigella Lawson’s Christmas Cup cocktail as seen in Stylist. Cherry brandy, sparkling wine and ginger ale (tastes like liquid cherry drops – amazing and very festive!). 4. Chocolate mince pies. I made these for a Christmas party and they went down a storm, visit BBC Food for the recipe. 5. Pretty crackers from Toast to complete our table setting on Christmas day. 6. To add a little sparkle we used these charming nativity scene tea light decorations from Dee Puddy. I hope you all have a fun New Year’s Eve. I’ll see you on the other side. - Alice

      The walk looks smashing.

      I guess it was before the rain came! As nice as soggy pastie and chips is!

      I recognise that view! We too visited Blackpool Sands over Christmas for a fabulous breakfast bap! Only a few miles from us! The beauty of South Devon – fabulous at any time of year!
      Happy New Year to you all.

        Oh yes, breakfast baps at the Venus Cafe are the best. I miss Devon!
