Relief in sight and a change of plans, as our family discover we are able to stay on living in our humble abode. Run down yes, but oozing in character, space and light. We make the most of these features. A recent interest in vintage signal flags has seen me sew up a couple on the machine. The one pictured I designed to obscure a crack in the wall of our old 50's kitchen. I like the industrial flavour it brings to this much loved room. Loved for it's large windows, period features and space - as is true of the rest of the house. Just happy to stay here a bit longer.
Decorating aside, a kitchen just isn't a kitchen if it doesn't fulfil it's most important task, so let me present to you A sample of home baked goodness .....an Italian Apple Cake. ( my version omits the dairy and eggs) A scrumptious treat for the whole family with a cuppa, and boy does it go fast.
