~ Repurposed Glass Cakestands & Rose Macaroons ~


I love old glass... 





~ * ~





I am always finding pieces
in charity stores and I can't resist them...







especially when I had seen this
project that I wanted to try...






I used a crystal candle holder,
a small glass and two glass plates.....
 along with some strong, clear glue.






so simple....






and perfect to display some
sweet treats!






I just bought a new baking tray
for little macaroons & whoopie pies.
My first attempt at macaroons....






turned out ok...
but I definately need some practice!





my little pink freckles
weren't quite perfect either,
but they tasted good!






I am in the last days of my holidays
so I am making the most of each moment!

Happy weekend!

~ Happy about Hippeastrums ~


I just love Spring.....






especially when beauties
like these POP up from the garden!

I couldn't help cutting some to
bring some happy colour inside!!!!






~ * ~






finding these lovelies in my
garden was an especially
sweet surprise...
not just because I didn't plant them,






but also because when I moved earlier
this year I couldn't bring
myself to dig up my established bulbs...
I left them for the new owners to enjoy....







it must be my good karma
coming back to me!!!!


Happy Wednesday!!!

I found some silverware at
a junk store and thanks to a little 
inspiration from Rediscovered Treasures
(recently reviewed by my gorgeous
bloggy friend Linda...
I knew I would love it if she did!!!)

A bit of blackboard paint for
one tray and I had a
perfect message board,
a clean and some stick on hooks
(back of tray & wall)
and I also had the perfect
magnetic board to display my in~laws
wedding photo & some home made
magnetic blackboard hearts...
finally some doublesided mounting tape
& I had a new candleholder too...

Mr Tiff did get a surprise
when he got home....
but seemed happy enough......


Off to do some more relaxing....
happy week!

~ Sew Sunny Rose Embroidery ~



One sunny day last holidays
I started a little embroidery project....






I took it to the beach....






and stitched as the children
fished and played...






it took a bit longer to complete
than I anticipated....





but I finally got it done...
and sewn into a cushion
as per my Sew Sunny Homestyle
 instructions....







I have never made a
cushion like it....







but I will try another
similar in style....






I also made some little heart shaped
lavender pillows for gifts.....






embelished with some
shabby roses and buttons....






sew pretty!






They smell gorgeous too!






I am really really
looking forward to the school holidays....







Only four more days of
school left this term!

I CAN make it!!!!


Happy week dear friends!!!
