I’m giving our bedroom a makeover at the moment and am going to make a fabric bedhead like the one above for the back of our bed . My daughter is also making one for her room. Yesterday we both went to Ikea and I chose some fabric…can’t wait to show you some pictures and instructions on how you can make one. It’s an easy way to give your room a lift.
On Saturday I wandered into this cafe and just loved the vintage feel…the vintage scales and plates. It’s called Babble on Babylon 85 Brighton Road, Elwood…the food looked delicious and the coffee was great. I think I’ll start scouring vintage shops to find one of these vintage scales for my kitchen.
My friend Sheila is doing me a big favour today by meeting me to return my husbands jacket and mobile phone he left at their place a few weeks ago. I thought I’d make her these Rocky Road Crunch Bars to say thank you seeing her husband John loves chocolate…
The Donna Hay Magazine is out today and what a beautiful issue. I love the doughnut story and the colour they painted the plates and cake stands that feature in the story, its a low sheen acrylic paint by Porters Paints…
Last night I was doing a blog surf and came across the most beautiful Homeware Store in New York via the blog What Katie Saw. The store is called Canvas and I am seriously in love with so many things in this store…the blue chesterfield, the ceramics…the whole concept.
Canvas source their products from around the globe created by artisans and craftsman from the US and abroad. Not only do you get a beautifully finished handmade product, you are helping people in poorer countries establish businesses that gives them a hand up not a hand out. Above are some pictures of some of the products in store.
My daughter Hayley attended her first high school camp this week and I promised her I’d make a chocolate cake for her return…I made Nigellas Old Fashioned Chocolate Cake…so easy you just put all the ingredients into a food processor and blitz. Whilst the cake is cooking you can make the chocolate icing…very easy and delicious. Below is a link to the recipe.
