This week has been super busy as we've decided to put our little house on the market. At the moment we live in a rural area but are thinking of making the move back to the coast, which is where we used to live and about 30 miles from here. The housing market is very slow at the moment but we're in no hurry, so we'll see what happens...
Apart from that bit of news, this week has been a good mail week as I finally got
around to buying this lovely book.
I also bought these cute vintage buttons on ebay - partly because I liked the card they came on, so will have to think of something to do with them!
Eventually after managing to get all my ingredients together, I finally got around to making this granola which really is delicious and made such a comforting smell as it was roasted in the oven. Who knew home-made granola would be so tasty and easy to make? I am now a convert, especially as it works out cheaper and nicer than buying store bought.
Finally: I have been playing around with paper cutting, something which I've looked at before but never done. I was actually doing this whilst I waited for the estate agent to come and value the house, instead of rushing around plumping cushions and other such things you should do when someone is coming to value your home! The only problem, is that I didn't really plan what I wanted to do, so it's just happening organically which basically means I'm just merrily cutting bits out at random and hoping that it holds together! Please note the lovely paper I am cutting which is brown parcel wrapping which came folded in a pack - hence the creases! If I'd been really clever, they would have been the pieces I would have cut out- hmmm - perhaps a little planning wouldn't have gone amiss! Hope you all have a lovely weekend!
