So having read a feature in this month's Homes & Antiques, which is now doing the round of my neighbours in an attempt to bring them over to the dark side, I am now the proud owner of this piece of kitsch. I know, I know I am not too sure what possessed me either but she makes me smile, hopefully in not too crazy a way.
In addition to this, I now know I am officially the mad bag lady of the street because yesterday, one of my kindly neighbours gave me two embroidered table cloths she had no use for.
Hope to be back later in the week with the recipe for this lovely cake, but I warn you it contains 200g of butter so you might want to stop eating now.
Have a good week xxx
I saw the swan article in H&A ... Thought the lady had rather a lot! I've got a couple in my bathroom, but still not quite sure about them. That cake looks delicious, and as it's a rainy Sunday, it's a must!ReplyDelete

Buying something because it makes you smile . . . to me is one of the very best reasons in the world to want to make it your own. That cake looks wonderful, I'll be waiting for your posted recipe. Come on over for a visit and think about following me back, I would be honored. Connie :)ReplyDelete
