This week's theme is
or what have you been
|there's only pearls on my mannequins! Tres chic though, mmmm?|
Some of you may remember seeing the dinner plate in pics of some of my recipes? I've been looking for a cup or mug that matches it for quite some time.....
When the girls and I went out last week for some thrifting, eating and shopping for Laura's birthday, I found this gorgeous vintage trio that matches the plate as closely as it's going to get! From Blake & Tayler who sell new and recycled homewares. Nice place atcherly. :)
I rapidly moved in for the kill in case someone else got to them first, and
snatched very carefully picked it up thinking only "It's mine!!!!!!". Not strictly thrifted, but second hand. Good nuf for me! :)
Oh and when I got home, told the DH that he didn't have to worry about what to get me for my birthday next month! He'd already bought it! lol.
|Experimented with puff pastry sheets to bake us a pizza or two. Quite successful I have to say. Lousy pic though sorry. :)|
|Trying to finish this bag that I started when I first joined Jody's meme. Not quite there but should be done for the market on Friday night.|
This is actually a ring-in for this meme, coz I started it a couple of weeks ago, but just had to share.
Can't even remember where I picked this box up now, but isn't it divine? Silky oak I assume, with a lot of age and character to show it.
You know how much I love to recycle, upcycle, repurpose etc? Yes of course you do! :)
I came up with the idea of re-using old Christmas and Birthday cards as favourite recipe cards and will keep them in the gorgeous box.
Depending on how I glue the recipe and pic of the finished dish, which I've printed out on paper, I can even keep any cherished messages which my friend or family have written inside the card! LOVE it!
There you go, if you just can't throw all your old cards you've received, then here's a lovely way to keep them and put them to work at the same time, don't you think?
Could even be used for household or crafting tips etc. Magic!
That's it! Head over to Jody's to see more stuff that's been sewn, made, baked or thrifted. You could even join in.
