Keep Calm and Carry on….

I was perusing my local cookware store for ideas for my Mother’s Birthday and saw this… I am a huge fan of baked goods (as my waistline will probably betray…) but even more I am a devotee of home baking – if this mug had read ‘Keep Calm and Carry on Baking’ it would have been even more apt. A cheery new addition to the kitchen, I’m sure you will agree!


Wedding Fever

I was working in the Library whilst everyone else was watching the Royal Wedding on Friday, I got a bit patriotic and wished I’d arranged a Street Party… So whilst eating my lunch I browsed the internet for some Union Jack bunting and found a gorgeous ‘shabby chic and vintage’ website called Vintage Amethyst

I knew the bunting wouldn’t arrive until after the Wedding, but it’s so gloriously patritoic it will be great for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee next year and it’s so lovely I’ve put it up in my bedroom for a splash of colour! I love it; check out the cute floral prints making up the design instead of the usual blocks of blue…
