I found this tiny felt monkey and terrier dog skulking around. I made them one night when I couldn't sleep. Funny that these small creations took around two hours at least each!
My two favourite new books, again purchased from Minerva bookshop on Cuba Street. Visual candy to say the least. I am so inspired but need to spend some time finishing my current projects.
One cold day I had some mince (ground beef to you Americans) and a few potatoes. Looky, my first cottage pie. I made it in my favourite Crown Lyn bowl I found at Trash Palace for a couple of bucks. Only because it is the closest thing I own to a casserole bowl. Very delicious and a favourite of the kids.Tea anyone? I drink copious amounts of hot sweet tea at the moment. It must be Earl Grey Tea too. I found the tea cosy in a bin that said "10 items for $2" at the local barn-sized recycled clothing centre. Total cost: 20c. I then had to look for a teapot and found a purple one at Trash Palace for $2!!! The tray was handpainted by my mother. The little beaded doily sugar cover also made by mum. And the teacups, well, another gift from my mum. Making up a tea tray has become a 'several times a day' constitution in our home. The biscuit jar is constantly being refilled.
