Thursday-ish

Picked some flowers from the garden, to officially welcome spring to the kitchen.
Bought some fresh, organic, rhubarb, to officially say bye to winter. Will stew this with sugar, then have it with custard after dinner.
Made a twirly, summery, skirt for Little P, with fabric found on Monday.
Found an original Kartell table at the Oppy, my heart skipped a beat as I turned it upside down, and saw the Kartell mark! Then I looked at the price tag $5 - for a Kartell,
with legs what swivel like?!
P and I carried this off to the car!!
Needs a big clean up, then it'll live in P's bedroom.

I've been making the BEST rhubarb, quince and apple crumbles as my last hurrah for winter. So yummy.

Rhubarb. Yum. I end up putting it in a vase so I can just look at it. It's a great colour. The secret with the banana cake, our household reckons, is the Mixmaster. I have an old Sunbeam Mixmaster and it's a gem of a beast. We've been making this cake for years, with a hand held mixer and switched to the Mixmaster when I bought it from a Salvos for $35 earlier this year. (It's on the blog somewhere). All cakes have seriously been better ever since. I kid you not.

wow, fantastic oppie find. lucky you!

Thanks for your comments about prem bubs, being a mum of one etc, was nice to hear your story. I think the idea of being a groovy mum o' one is really growing on me. Might mean more time to make special skirts and the like for the little lady.
