work tiredness has got me again this week, and blogging has slid back a bit. my week has been pretty good though and the extra pocket money has come at a perfect time with a few unexpected expenses popping up.
first up a sweet, packed full of flavour capsicum. this one went into fried rice and in the background fresh basil from the garden combined with cashews for a quick, easy pesto.
I have received some beautiful mail this week which has been a welcome surprise upon returning home from a day at work. firstly a copy of Pip magazine. you may remember I did a post about supporting pozible campaigns back here, well this permaculture magazine is the result. it's filled with articles on designing and building a greenhouse, medicinal herbs perfect for the upcoming cold and flu season and starting a food forest.
also in the letter box this week are these beautiful hand printed fabrics from another successful pozible campaign: Fictive Fingers.
yesterday I popped into my local oppies and found a few treasures. more doilies which a destined to become bunting and maybe some pockets on a winter dress; a little Johnson jug for $1 and this delightful little case. which when opened revealed a Nally ware picnic set ($5).
today i'll be in front of the sewing machine finishing a dress to wear to a fundraising ball I'm attending tonight. the fabric I'm using is new but all my accessories are op-shopped so I will be sure to share a few snaps with you.
wishing you a relaxed weekend. x
