Hello all I am back with a all in half a week special "mouthful" I have been busy with one thing and another. We took a visit to Ikea again this week usually its for the bargain breakfast that usually gives me an excuse to entice the other half into shopping. I bought these shelves ideally used for picture frames but should know me by now anything is possible. My partner shouted from the living room "Don't put too many things on the shelf" No dear its fine only half of what was jam packed in the display cabinet. At first I filled it with jugs and odd's and sods but it looks too cluttered, to be honest even with plates it looks rather busy but I guess everything in the house is busy, busy and extra added busy.
I eventually finished fixing and painting the table it took 6 coats of watered down Annie Sloan Chalk paint, I wouldn't ask why 6 coats I guess I was just over ambitious on coverage. You really wouldn't think it was the same table.
Lilac food colouring now this is the first time I have ever come across LILAC food colouring.
I look forward to baking up something with this perhaps a lavender cake.
Obviously minus the stray hair...
We took a trip back to our home town Scarborough had a visit to the Granary Farm Tea Rooms
The food wasn't much to scream about it seems nobody really wants to do tea rooms properly any more I could count on one hand how many establishments actually bake a decent cake and serve a cracking cup of tea. It seems to be microwave jacket potatoes, toasties and cake bought from a wholesaler "Carrot & Fudge cake" Ohhh I am going on.
I love this picture it was taken on my Phone I was stunned at how well it turned out.
On to Scarborough North Bay for a ride on my new skates It was such a lovely evening I could of stayed in this moment forever, doing what made me feel happy and free. We often have the odd night child free when we visit our parents. Me and Anson put on our skates and acted 12 all over again. Usually I would be running around getting Eason in to bed.
As we approached the beach we saw this beautiful rainbow it was such a warm night and it looked so mysterious hanging about in the North Sea.
Well you can definitely see me coming in these.
On Sunday I made Tea Cup Cakes I thought it was a lovely idea as my sister and her partner came to visit, well anyone would have thought I had served up a tea cup full of gold fish. First of all they was Salted caramel and peanut butter cup cakes only one of them did not like peanut butter so I guess I was brave choosing that flavour to begin with. All of my family think I am mad they don't really understand my love for all things shabby chic, my sister calls me "Mother Hen" I guess my followers are the only people who actually take an interest. Keep doing what makes you happy I say.
What the hell are these???? they say!!
