Retro Pyrex - I love the older pyrex and found these in town at an op shop this week. They are in perfect condition. Not sure what I will use them for but that never seems to come into it when op shopping does it? Wink wink!
And look what I found!!! After Mr H said I "needed" a china cabinet I was like any women who gets the go ahead to buy something. Possessed! Had a look in town and then was walking past the Salvation Army op shop and look what was in the window........and the price........$20! Can you believe it?! It even has a dinky drinks cabinet but I will probably stash some of my teapots in here. She needs some TLC though. I have bought a class shelf to fit in the glass cabinet and this weekend will sand her and finish with a rub down of either beeswax polish or orange oil. I can't wait to show you the finished result.
Getting hooked - I have always wanted to learn how to crochet. I bought a couple of books the hooks and yarn. I've also book marked a couple of You tube "How to" videos. So this weekend I plan on trying to teach myself how to crochet. My first project will be these great cloths. To think one day I may possibly be able to make a blanket! Do you crochet? Have you learnt from watching the You Tube clips for self teaching?
Washi Tape.....Do you use it and love it?! I love Washi Tape. And next week I off into town for a 2 hour craft session with other fellow Washi Tape lovers.
Bike rides........we have not been into the vineyard for bike rides and walks for a while now. There is alot of activity going on in there at the moment. Lots of tractors and quad bikes around. So the boys have been happy to bike up and down our road.
Food for the soul..........Our mornings are getting cooler. The colder months are starting to slowly creep in and I've been cooking more "hearty" evening meals. The children demolished this savoury mince. I cooked it in vege stock and grated lots of carrot and courgette into it. I always put a couple of table spoons of Brown Sauce (HP) into mine, along with sea salt and cracked pepper and served with a side of green veges. They loved it. If there is any left over it is nice reheated and served on toast for breakfast.
