Special day ......

I popped into a local Op Shop the other day and found a couple of treasures...
(you can tell I'm rather a big spender can't you?)


Yesterday I put them together

- ready for high tea anytime - 


A bit of hot glue at the top of the glass.... looks a bit globby but just ignore that....


It's great to recycle... I'm sure there must be brownie points for recycling recycled glass

just ignore the airmiles it took to get to my house!!!!

Lately I have managed to do another couple of stitcheries for Boys Story ....


a serious little kite flyer....


... and a horrid little boy playing tricks on the sweet little girl....
(some things never change!)



Righto, Gotto Go... I have figured out a way to hide that globby bit on my new cake stand....


Lime and Coconut Cake
recipe from Tracy at Sunny Corner Farm  HERE
I often use Tracy's recipe's - they are always delicious

I know I said I wasn't doing too much baking but we have a birthday to celebrate ...


Maddy turns 2 - isn't she gorgeous?
Big cuddles my darling
