Last post for 2010!

Well, it's about that time. Only a few hours left until we start a New Year. What are you doing to celebrate? J and I thought we would keep it quiet this year, and are cooking a fancy degustation dinner at home. I have been preparing food since yesterday, and I am excited to sit down to dine tonight! Here is the menu:

Doesn't it sound delicious! I can't wait to eat it. The first post of next year will have some pictures and recipes.

Have a lovely New Year everyone, and a joyful 2011.

Cake Stands

As you might know, I am getting married in December next year. I have been tracking down some old cake stands to use for my desserts at the reception. Aren't they so pretty? If you want to know more about my inspiration (and other wedding stuff), head over to AnotherRingComing to read all about my cake ideas!

An new calendar for a New Year

2011 is almost upon us. One of the things I always enjoy doing this time of year is searching for the perfect calendar to accompany me throughout the coming year! This year, it's this little lovely from Cabin + Cub. Sweet, huh?

Giving in to Temptation

I have been wanting to buy these measuring spoons from Beehive Kitchenware for SOOOOO long. Years, even. So I finally did. Merry Christmas to me!

So it's been a REALLY long time.

Remember me?! The one in the tissue paper dress? It feels like I have been gone for yonks, and, well, I have! 2 months! Ridiculous. I have been away with work and spending a bit of time with my family. You know when you just need to switch off for a while? Yeah.

So anyway, here we are at Christmas time. J and I put the tree up last Friday. Gifts are not yet wrapped, and not all are bought yet. It is warm and sunny and I want to go to the beach, but today I am working on getting my store back up and running. It's been too long!

I thought I would share some pictures of my life in the last few weeks - fresh berries (note mulberry stained hands!) from my aunt's orchard; cute new puppies; and our Christmas tree.

Did you notice my red shoes? They're nice aren't they? I bought them in Melbourne. Love!
