Yesterday, I took a bit of time from the studio remodel that turned into a whole house remodel. This weekend the kitchen cabinets come down and that mess starts. In the middle of all this disorder, I needed something nice to look at. There is no room in my tiny little house to store stuff and collections have to be kept to a minimum. Magazine are torn apart and favorite pages and pictures are kept to place in an inspiration type journal. The above picture is the start of a new one. More items have been added to my Etsy shop today's additions are some vintage flocked wallpaper so hard to part with but I have to seriously down size my supplies there is a reason for all this madness a couple of huge packages of mixed cards even my collection of much loved wood handled stamps is being pared down There will be more details later but it seems there is a move in my near future and I will be back living in my gyspy wagon. a modern gypsy wagon someone has liked what I have done to this old house and is offering something that I can't refuse isn't that the way it always works just when I thought I could sit back and say "done" with this house, I am hooking up the wagon and looking for a new place to live big orange cat doesn't mind, he loves the traveling caravan nothing happens until this fall but there are changes coming
my contribution to a tea party Raspberry Truffle Chocolate Sin Brownies
so very sinful indeed
I followed this recipe and used a small round biscuit cutter to cut the brownies. To make cutting easier, I put the brownies in the freezer so they were firm but not frozen solid. Then I added a dollop of raspberry preserve on top.
We were supposed to bring proper tea cakes but no one said a word when I took out my "brownies". Sometimes you just have to shake things up a bit.
I think I will rename these to "Raspberry Truffle Magic Brownies" because they disappeared right before my eyes.
the studio is nearly put back together things are sorted so anxious to get back in the normal rhythm and journaling again Zephirine Drouhin burst into her spring bloom Louise Odier has the girls lined up and ready for the show slightly blurry ducking around the rain Desprez à Fleur Jaune so glad I took about 20 cuttings of this blue sage, I am loving it right now Ralph the Dog won't leave the path in the secret garden, turns out the fire ants have found their way in. Ralph the Dog hates fire ants, me too.
The bright yellow green plant is golden oregano and this is something I must plant more of.
