What a busy week I had! Mad mad mad days went by so quickly and I spent half of my weekend shifting around some furniture preparing one of the rooms for skirtboarding. Not much progress in stitches tho, neither project has been finished yet but I'm hoping to do it soon! But in the meantime I managed to bake these:
Cinnamon lattice shortcrust pastry cookies :) I experimented with the hand cut lattice and the whole cookie arrangement. It's my home-made and hand-made creation for Hand-made Monday at Wendy's blog :) I love trying out new recipes and baking is such fun! Each time you make a little miracle out of flour, shortening and sugar. Then the over heat transforms it into something tasty and aromatic :) Isn't it great? I used the instructions for the lattice layout from HERE.
Each desperate or not desperate housewife needs sometimes to treat herself to some nice kitchen gadgets so for my home-made food creations I recently bought these:
cookie cutters!! I could have all possible shape and size in the world!!! Don't you?
I found these hand-shaped moulds incredibly cute!
Star-shaped cookie cutter is already classic and is what each of us has got at home. I am already building up my cooking gadget collection!
This lattice cutter caught my eye in the shop straight away! No wonder, I already imagine a tray with hot steaming fruit lattice pies in my kitchen!!!
Some update on ceramic buys :) How could I resist such a lovely red-white spotted dish?!
I've been soooo much into dots recently, add to this that trendy retro charm and folky rustic style! The cup is sorta Scandinavian-looking so will blend in well into my Nordic decor at Christmas, I think :)
Another recenty spotty-dotty buy for the kitchen:
and a storage box for my sewing fabrics :)
I must have contracted a dotty virus, as you can see :)
