|homemade organic lemon cordial|
We love tangy homemade lemon cordial in this house. Splash in some sparkling water, and you have fabulous lemonade. Thanks to our dear friend Princess Pia, who has a tree full of lemons!
|a few bits and bobs|
Mr P. gave me the Italian olive oil for Christmas. I always buy Aussie stuff, but this was a Christmas treat. The paste and the relish are local. In fact the famous Queen factory (the vanilla bean paste maker), is just up the hill from our house (as I think I've said before). The relish comes from a regional area, a couple of hours away.
|another book! oh my groaning shelves|
My Scottish blood is zinging here. I love anything about the Scottish islands, and Highlands. My great-grandfather Jock Mackay migrated to Australia early in the 20th century. Not sure if he had been a bad boy, and had to come out, or just decided on a change of scene. :-)
|a few Christmas goodies from my cousin|
I still wonder about ruby chocolate. Is it natural, or is it something they concocted in a lab somewhere? Looks like you could have a lot of fun with that shimmer powder ...
|and a Frida keep cup from Princess Pia|
Regular readers will be aware of my obsession with Frida Kahlo. And so is our mate Princess Pia (aware I mean), so she bought me this lovely keep cup for Christmas. I was even there when she bought it, but completely forgot, so it was a huge surprise when I opened it. Yes, my brain is draining out of my ears these days.
|more tea towels|
You can never have too many tea towels. As my overflowing linen cupboard attests. And these are sooo cute. Thanks cuz!
|a beautiful Alice teacup and saucer, and tea towels|
Oh lucky me! Our generous friend brought back Alice goodies for me from her recent trip overseas. She knows I love anything Alice. And just like the saucer says: we're all mad here!
|aren't these pretty?|
This lovely little bowl is made from a coconut husk, as are the little spoons. I love the tiny, sparkly bitty inserts. So that's it for this month. I'd better finish up while the going is good. Come along, virtual friends, no shilly-shallying, excite me with your fascinating IMK posts.
