A good egg

Here's a really pretty egg I found in my carton of free range eggs today. It's in a carrot cake now. What a good egg!

Introducing Captain Dolphin...

... terror of the 897 seas, apparently. Jonathan did this.

A nice day's market shopping

Last week at the trash and treasure market, I bought a box of mixed coloured pencils. Look what I got out of it! A whole tin of (about) 90 Albrecht Durer coloured pencils. That's the fancy kind. And I already had a cute Lindt tin just the right size. The couple of short pencils were already in my collection.

A very nervous magazine

So, I subscribed to Woman's Day, pretty much entirely because there was a way better-than-usual gift with subscriptions. So, I will be getting the next 13 copies. I reckon my dentist or doctor might like most of them, but this copy is sitting nervously on the craft room desk. I hope nothing bad happens to it.

Office cutlery

What cutlery do you keep at your desk at work? Jeff has lots of plastic forks - when they give him one he doesn't need, he can't bring himself to throw it out. I bring my lunch, so I don't face that problem.

This is my armoury - we have a grapefruit spoon, a silver plated tea spoon (for the tea caddy, not for stirring), and a grapefruit knife. Oh, I suppose I use regular spoons and forks from the kitchen too, but they are not as photogenic.

Craft room all set up now!

Here's my pretty craft room. It has soft comfy carpet, bright lighting, a door you can shut (but still hear if something interesting happens outside), and lots of drawers and shelves. And a big, big desk. It's also a better than average place to lurk.

Father's Day card 2014 - now with dinosaurs!

I made Jeff a Father's Day card... I picked out a beautiful landscape stamp to use, and as an afterthought, added dinosaurs. Should really have done something about creating a reflection for the big guy. It looks a tiny bit photoshopped.

And I forgot to write anything inside, but that's becoming a tradition locally!

Happy Father's Day!

Nice day's trash and treasuring

I had a pleasant morning at a church fete today. The loot includes a Twinings tin, a Wade cottage, and a real grapefruit knife!
