I don't know about the rest of you but I am Obsessed with my new Manuel Canovas Dara cushions and keep walking back into my bedroom to stare wide eyed and open mouthed at their Beauty.
Much like I did to my son when he was born.
You can just tell we'll be Happy Forever.
I've found a super cheap source of feather inserts which I'll reveal in the next few days.
It is after all Frugal February.
Said Yes to Retro Colour Blocking.
Said Yes to Coral and Shells.
While all this rain is Great for the Garden it is what can only be described as Sub-optimal for my Hair.
So I Shoved on my Pirate Hat.
Because I keep a blog I have a photo of me on the day I bought that scarf from the Hermes Mother ship in Paris. Those were the days my cyber friends.
This weather makes me want to curl up and watch Love in a Cold Climate (the early 80s BBC version) and read Portrait of a Marriage which I am LOVING SICK. SICK I tell you. If you haven't read it you are so lucky because it's fantastic.
Sometimes I wish I lived closer to Petersham Nursery. Like in the same hemisphere.
The other day I whipped up an apple upside down cake because frankly, after a hard day at the Coalface and a school run, baked goods were a Necessity.
There's a visual on instagram and here's the recipe:
Butter and flour a loaf tin. Turn your oven to 160 Celsius.
Mix half a cup of softened butter and 1/2 a cup of brown sugar and shove it on the bottom of the pan.
Open a tin a cooked apple pie filling and tip that in.
Mix up 120g butter, 100g sugar, 120 flour, 2 tsp baking powder, a slug of vanilla (don't be stingy), a table spoon of ground almonds (heaped) and 2 eggs.
Shove the batter on on top of the apples and bake for about 45 minutes.
Apply to Face.
Fell free to inspire me with your Frugal February Plans.
