The perfect afternoon treat…

…a mini treacle tart brought home by my boyfriend from Maltby Street Market from Poppy’s Kitchen. Delicate and delicious!

I think next weekend I am going to have to go and check out her stall as this was by far the best tiny desert I have had in a very long time! Scrummy!

Christmas Chutney – year 2

Last week I met up with the same girls as last year to make our second round of chutney ready for Christmas gifts.  After the success of the caramelised onion chutney last year, we decided to give a ‘special Christmas chutney’ a go. Made with apples, pears dates and onions it was relatively easy to make, just the huge volume to contend with :) This weekend I decorated the jars to finish off, with printed mini luggage tags using my letter set…They look quite nice don’t you think?

Vintage ladders for the Home

I bought these vintage ladders at Grenwich market last weekend and they look great in the living room with magazines on and in the bedroom for shoes…

The market was a lovely place to look round on a Sunday afternoon and there was a lot of amazing old furnature and accessories for sale. Definately worth a visit!
