am baking today....

i will be making the chocolate revel bars posted below as well as some choc chip brownie slice .. this is all a ruse, i dont feel like vacuuming LOL .. cameron is also going back to gatton tomorrow and once again the house will be quiet, i miss the "heya wierdo or mcwierdie hows ur day been" .. and his music which to some would be "that head banging crap" but to me some of it i dont mind but it means the house is noisy...that sort of stuff cos really theres not much u get out of a 19yr old cat except "meow" and thats usually cos ive not given her some of our favourite tuna lol.
so baking... theres a bad side to baking tho it sits there looking at me lol. ill be giving cameron some to take back let me tell you!! ... sigh...

books and journals

some books and journals I've been working on ....


always loved pottery ...not your usual run of the mill brown pottery crap but pretty fine pottery....Etsy Shop...spun mud has the most gorgeous pottery....

housey stuff

I'm always on the lookout for beautiful rooms ... I'm not sure if its because my house after 25 years still isnt finished ... its rather crap actually because it could be a beautiful home in the country. I've had dreams and thoughts about it for that whole time and realise that it just won't be finished ever .. it makes me sad to think that... I've envisioned my house for years, beautiful, resplendent in loveliness ..but I think i have to come to the eventual thought that it's just not gonna happen *insert sad face* it's rather a crappy feeling. Anyway I think thats why I continue to find pics that appeal............

all things crafty

found the most beautiful tags at

just gorgeous .... sigh ...
