happenings and a winner.

the days are flying by here.
overtime at work has seen another week go quickly by
the op-shops have been generous in their offerings
the spinach and kale that lay dormant over winter has sprung to life.
I've been busy making rough puff pastry (using this recipe) and filling it with homegrown spinach and market-purchased cheese
the sweet peas are in bloom. as is the lavender
we made a Biltong box and my love has been enjoying the dried meat. I hope to share a little DIY to make your own Biltong box if you're interested.
I've been blessed with a few parcels from blog friends filled with vintage sheets, LGBs and tea towels
a new camera lens was purchased as an early Christmas present. i'm enjoying playing with it
I also picked a winner for the little tea towel cushion cover give away. and that winner is...
if you could email me your address i'll post the cushion cover and a couple of other goodies your way.
what have you been up to lately?


  1. Life looks pretty at your place Zara. Love the photo of the pastry making. Do tell us more about your new camera x

  2. Yay! So excited, thank you so much. It is going to look very at home on my orange bed spread. The first pic of the lavender is so pretty. Have a wonderful weekend. xo

  3. Tough pastry sounds perfect! And I love this cheery cushion do much. You are very inspiring Zara. Always joyful to visit your space.

  4. Rough pastry! Silly auto correct!

  5. Yay for lucky Elaina. Love the sheets. I'm still waiting for my sweet peas to bloom - rather cold in NZ this weekend though - sideways rain and massive wind gusts. Typical spring and the reappearance of snow.

  6. Your days always sound so wonderful.

  7. As a South African I'm in love with biltong so yes please show us how you do it! Xx


I love receiving comments, so a big thank you from me to you. x
