creative space

crocheting a blanket for a new niece or nephew due next month
(I spent a fortune on the beautiful cashmere blend yarn, and it is so lovely to work with)

baking too many winter goodies
thermomix gingernut cookies being our favourite

putting my DSLR on manual, and taking a half-decent picture

rearranging kitchen shelves with new-to-me vintage cannisters taking pride of place
(the result of my dad having a rummage through his shed, when I visited)

and finally, a bare wall on my kitchen filled, with just the right shelving
thank you pinterest

brackets from Bunnings
vintage books (in two different sizes) resting on top
= the perfect shelving for my tea jars, above my kettle in the kitchen

(note: this picture was not one of the half decent ones!)
