For Katie ♥

6 Apr

So the Mr used all the eggs. We had like, two cartons last time i checked, and today when i was about to get stuck into a day of baking………………no eggs to be found. Argh!

So instead, i’m going to do a post for Katie at Chicken Noodle Gravy (if you haven’t visited her page, do yourself a favour 😉 ) because i found out she collects copies of Black Beauty!

I found this one in a second hand bookstore for 50 cents. Isn’t it gorgeous?

This is the best bit, i think. How lovely is the handwriting! Lucky Tony 🙂

 Katie, I hope you had a most excellent birthday and that all your wishes come true xoxo


A not-much weekend

4 Apr

Hello! I hope you had/are having a marvellous weekend  ♥

The Mr & I had a rather uneventful and totally domestic one. Let me show you!

First of all, we went garage-saling and then to the local fruit wholesaler who is only open a few hours on Saturdays. We got lots of supplies!

The cat promptly claimed the box, as she’s prone to doing.

Then our microwave went to microwave heaven, so we got a newbie. Very boring.

Then on Sunday i spent half the day perusing a few of my current favourite cookbooks…

…and then started on a few library books. Libraries are under-rated!

And that’s about it! I’d love to hear what you got up to  ♥ xx

A day with Fifi

31 Mar

When i was home a few weeks ago, i spent a lovely day with a dear friend of mine, Fifi.

We started the day with breakfast at the best cafe in the world, Cafe Envy.

They have bowls of coffee. And juices named after the 7 Deadly Sins.

Then we moseyed through the cutest little shop, ever!

And then we circumnavigated one of the coolest bookstores i’ve ever encountered…and i’ve encountered a few…AND i found two copies of Pride & Prejudice to add to the collection!

It was a lovely day ♥ ♥ ♥

PS – Thank you so much to everyone who has been leaving such beautiful comments on my posts! I love you! xx

What i’ve been reading…

29 Mar

Move over Pride & Prejudice…i have a new collection obsession…

Nancy Drew! I found these 4 books in a little second hand bookstore in Maleny, for a couple of dollars each. I was sold.

I loooved Nancy growing up, but i have to say it was funny to go back and read them again. Nancy is very….self assured. And George is SO mean to Bess about her weight! Being …plump… myself i may be a little sensitive to it, but in every single book there’s a weight reference about Bess, and usually from George. Probably a thing of the era it was written in though, and it can’t have affected me too much as a kid because i don’t remember ever noticing it back in the day 😛

Since watching the Sherlock Holmes Movie, my interest in the books has been piqued. I’ve actually had this book on my shelf for a couple of years, purely because it looked good 😛 I’ve read the first two novels so far, and they’re so interesting!

A quote from Sherlock jumped out at me in the first novel:

It is a capital mistake to theorize before you have all the evidence. It biases the judgement.

 Tell me what you’ve been reading lately, i’m always on the lookout for something new ♥

The best gift…

26 Dec

That i received this Christmas is Pip Lincolne’s new book!

To say that i am thrilled is an understatement. I literally did a happy dance. In my pyjamas. Wearing reindeer antlers.

Mosey on over to one of my most favourite sites, ever: Meet Me at Mike’s
