Preparing for Easter



Palm Sunday tomorrow & that will not go unnoticed here at our cottage. My mom clipped a bit of green from our garden, strung some raisins, picked out a knitted rooster, a few beeswax eggs, some ribbons.

Pemberley, Collecting & a Courgette Flan

Regency Cameo's & Writing about Darcy

They tend to be expensive or only available in faraway places. So how fabulous is it, to be able to make something myself?

What to expect on a Sushi Sunday




Sunday afternoon I went to my friend S's house. She had invited me and my sister to come over and make sushi together. I had never had (or made my own) sushi before. Didn't really know what to imagine by the idea of veggie sushi. But luckily S. has two recipe books full of lovely suggestions. She also had loads of vegetables to experiment with...
