More Stuff!!!

Had a bit of a disaster day today made a lovely big lemon drizzle cake in my new bundt tin , and left it on the windowsill to cool when fiver (my tabby) knocked it off and smashed it to smithereens. Then I cut my thumb chopping veg and burnt my hand on a tray of parsnips!!

I did manage to produce this pie inspired by the Big British Bake Off.......A cheese, potato and onion one and it was yum!!!

And it didn't have a soggy bottom!!! I decorated it with lovely little hearts!
Went treasure hunting and came back with this cake stand..........
Two of these pink cake plates...quite worn but it just makes me happy to think of all the wonderful cakes that have been on them!!! And now I am using them!!
two little rosy saucers for my cake stand making.....

And a bunch of these cutters, I used them to decorate my pie but bought them to make heart shaped sugar lumps for Christmas.......

A pretty pink thistle cup and saucer...........
And three of these trios.....I don't think they are old but they are very sweet with their blue roses....

And last but not least look what The Better Half came home with...a present! I already have a Kenwood but I was chuffed with this retro one.............
Its my new favourite thing!!!!!
Oh well I am off to settle down for the evening and missing the slice of lemon drizzle cake I would of had with my vanilla tea....pesky cat!!!!

  3. a bundt tin is one of those ring tins with patterns on them.....because the cake was warm it just disintergrated when it hit the floor...the cake tin was ok lol!!!!!

  4. Wow, that pie looks scrummy! I was watching a programme last night and they were making stews....ahhh, it's stew time again...can't get enough of it!

    Your treasures are fab! Sadly, I had a great big 'pack away my vintage china' session at the start of the week. boo hoo. It's got to the point where I need to make room for everything else, and I had to be ruthless. Nevermind, it's always like chiristmas when it comes out again! he he

    Have a great day! xxxxx

  5. my mum had a kenwood chef like that wow thats taken me back years!
