Who believes in.........

in fairies? Or magic in any form?

I've always been drawn to the supernatural and this is reflected in my beliefs, my choice of reading and even tv shows!

Last night for example I watched this week's episode of True Blood and this afternoon what was I doing... messing about with fantasy themed aceos and cards. Currently only the aceo is finished- isn't she cute?

PS- She is also available in my folksy shop- please click the photo to go to her :)

I wondered what else was available on folksy and look what I found.

A fairy in her very own garden by Enchanted Wood and I love... really LOVE the Red Riding print from Harriet's Imagination. (Click the photos to go to their shops).

If only I had a wall to put it on! Now that is something else which has kept me busy this weekend... researching rental properties. One word... headache!

What else have I been up to? Mmm take a peek at some of my latest earrings.... which will be popping up on folksy soon. Or... if you can't wait til then contact me! And can see what can do :)

In case you missed it the answer to my last blog post brain teaser was....... two as you took two apples away!

Now this one has even me stumped for the moment and I can't move forward on my game until I've solved it! The game in question is Professor Layton and the Curious Village.... the 1st in the series! Which I've collected and played in a strange way. The first one I completed was Pandora's Box (the second), I then moved out to Lost Futures (the third) and finally decided I ought to give the first one a go.

Anyway this is it.....

An ordinary analogue clock has two hands, the longer hand moves faster around the face of the clock.
Assuming that the clock keeps perfect time how many times will the long and short hands pass over each other between 12 noon and 12 midnight?

I'm not looking up the answer as that defeats the purpose of the game! But if anyone gets it before me... (edit: and can explain the reasoning) I will give a £1 voucher for my shop (not that that's an incentive!)

Thanks for reading.


  1. lovely aceo and pretty earrings. I'm going to have to come back to the puzzle as I have a cold and can't think straight

  2. Beautiful ACEO and I love the one I purchased from your shop on Folksy!

    I think I know the answer to your question lol! I think the answer is 12 because it takes the long hand 60 minutes to go around the whole clock face and each time it does this it passes the short hand, which only moves after each hour. So in theory between 12 noon and 12 midnight is 12 hours snd this means they pass each other 12 times! Does this make sense lol! Jen x

  3. Some great items there, I love Red Riding too, and your new earrings are looking good.

    The voucher is a big incentive for me (waiting for some special earrings) but after my last failed attempt at looking so dim not even going to try this time.


  4. Aww thanks for the lovely comments :) I have just worked it out... (albeit with the help of my work colleague) but since it took me so long the voucher still there.

    Jen- it does make sense and logically it seems so. That was my first guess :)

    Lynda- it won't be long til I play with those and they are lovely!! And no you didn't fail or look dim at all.

    Now a hint.... the hands start off on top of each other at 12 noon so technically that doesn't count as a pass.


  5. Ok, I'm going to have another guess lol! I thought it would be 11 but I have just forcibly wound my clock round from 12 to 12 o'clock and the answer is 10 times! I'm still kind of baffled but hopefully it's right?

  6. Yes that's right! Ten times- it's because at each of the 12 it technically doesn't pass over it. It didn't take you as long as it took me :)
