Tip of the week

Some of you will know this tip already but just in case here it is... 
The floating egg test - I use it all the time! Place an egg into a jug or large glass of water. If it sinks to the bottom its fresh. If it floats to the top its a rotten egg!! Simple.

Fresh egg

Toasty Bodega Nuts

Yes I've been a tad quiet. A few things have been going on. Working on a new business venture, freelance work, sick cat, sick children, car broken down and so on....

Anyhoo, got some Bodega nuts roasting in the oven. Wish this post came with a smell cam... 'cos they smell amazing!! 

I have also been working on my little office room, which will become my 'showroom'. Progress is slow as I have few ideas to renovate the room, then I change my mind. My hubby helps me but he's only free weekends. I had a gorgeous vintage light re-chromed (forgot to take a before pic), but one piece of the fitting was left behind. So frustrating... this little piece will have to go to the chrome shop when I get a gap, then only then, can the light go up.

I'm still going to continue to bake and take orders, but unfortunately I won't be able to do i heart market anymore.
