Foodie Friday

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6
I am aware that as far as food-related posts go this is a bit of a cupcake shaped cop-out however I have so much work on at the moment that the majority of my posts will probably be word-lite over the next couple of weeks. 

Bet you want to bake now though don’t you?!


Five Images

Today’s Five Images are all from previous posts on my blog! Follow the numbers for a mini tour of some of my earlier posts… I thought it might be a fun way for some of my newer readers to get to know me better.

Happy reading xox

The Pink Post


I think that by now you probably know that I like tea. And who would be able to resist this sweet set?
How gorgeous is this elephant collage? DB loves elephants so I’m tempted to recreate something similar…
How awesome does this store look?!
I don’t have an iphone but if I did I would have this case!
I’ve always wanted to live in a cottage & what could be more perfect than a pink one?
Great graffiti.
Deliciously cheeky cupcakes!
I love this little camera necklace, unfortunately I don’t know where I found the picture. If you’ve seen it let me know where so that I can credit it.

Film favourites: Marie Antoinette

The costumes, the decadence, the sets, the cupcakes, the opulence, the shoes, the cinematography, Kirsten Dunst… what’s not to love?!


Daydreaming…

Work yesterday was long, tiring, frustrating & done on three hours sleep. Today was better but I can’t help dreaming about having my own place… my only little shop. I’m even looking at figures…

Anyway here are some pics of the type of place I would love to have one day…

(all photos found at www.flickr.com)

I’d sell handcrafted goodies, secondhand books, vintage finds, crafting supplies (especially wool… can’t get enough of it!), cupcakes, tea…. *dream*….

If you had a shop what would you sell?
BTW I haven’t made a perfect cupcake yet but I have eaten it! Marks & Spencers Luscious Lemon Cupcakes. Lovely light sponge, beautifully done lemon icing & then… lemon curd inside. Oh my gosh! Divine!

Before I’m 33 *Wish*List Explanations…

# Make a ‘perfect’ cupcake (click on pic for source)…. I’ve made fairy cakes before (fairy cake/cupcake they’re the same I think) but never one of those ‘oh-my-god-that-looks-so-amazing-i’m-not-sure-i-can-actually-eat-it-cupcakes. And I want too!
# Go to the Tate Modern… I’ve never been!
# Learn to drive… I think it’s about time! I’d love my own VW bug or an old mini 🙂
#Make a birthday cake… I made one once, but not very well. I want to make one this year & it will be great!
#Make jam… I’ve always wanted to do this. How hard can it be? How yummy will it be??!
#Go to Paris. Everybody has to go once…
#Bake a pie from scratch.. pastry & all… I once made a scrummy steak & Guiness pie but I cheated and bought a packet of Shortcrust pastry mix. Hhhmmm I’ve got a few baking related ones on here haven’t I?!
#Fill an entire scrap/collage book… it probably will take me a year to do this 🙂

#Learn to knit… OK so this one was actually one of my New Years Resolutions for 2009 but I haven’t acheived it yet so I figured I’d put it on this list instead!

#Go blackberry picking… I love blackberries. & if I’m blackberry picking then it’ll be warming & sunny. Blackberry picking in the sunshine sounds kind of idyllic to me…
#Read 5 ‘classic’s…. any suggestions welcome!
#Get a sewing machine…. *dreams* I wish, I wish, I wish…
#A trip to the US… I’ll blog about this in a seperate post, I’m collecting weird & wonderful places to visit in the US & I really want to go with Mr J.
#Pretty china tea sets… Mr J would break them, that’s the main problem with this one! But maybe I could ‘have’ some as transitional items before they head off elsewhere…
#A polaroid camera… I used to have one but I have no idea where it ended up. I’d love to replace it anyway!
#New glasses… I’ve had mine a couple of years now & the prescription needs updating.
#New laptop… mine is almost dead. I need to use it for work too so it’s going to need replacing 😦
#A good camera… cuz i’m just using the camera on my phone, which isn’t too bad, but….
So that’s my wishlist so far…
