Spring is in the air.

 A week of warm(ish) weather has certainly brought out the spring flowers, now that the crocus, snowdrops and dwarf iris have finished.

Memories box

A box I covered with images from The Graphics Fairy which has turned out well, I hope my grandaughter likes it.

I made these in December from a book called "Mad about Macarons" I was given for my birthday by my daughter. Excellent book as they were a success first time. Having made them three times now I can honestly say that it is not difficult but that the procedures have to be followed precisely. However, I still find it quite nerve wracking so I reward myself by eating them (one of many special weaknesses)!

Decorating - preparation seems to take forever

This time it's the lounge. Off with the orange wallpaper, ok some people have loved it but not me. I may have done once a long, long time ago but been there and done that as they say. I may put some before and after pictures of the other rooms we have done so far - this is for my sake really, to give me some encouragement. It's not just decorating, the electrics in this room are possibly original 1930's so are a priority. This means lots of plaster dust all over the place, still worth it I hope. These are the before ones, need to find more of the after ones.

Top one is kitchen, middle is orange wallpaper, bottom is dinning room
