I have also bought some more Annie Sloan paint for more make overs. The latest item to receive the paint treatment was the fireplace. It has gone from Morris Green to Old White. Looks a little better but still have to organise the ornaments and shift things around a little. I bought the bottles in the basket from Reg Taylor Garden Centre and I am so pleased with it the daffs look very spring like but boy they smell nasty - bit like cat wee actually. Oh well they look good and I am looking forward to using different flowers as the seasons change.
Want a peek-
Old White - much brighter
Painted the mirror too
The pretty smelly daffodillies in my new bottle/basket vase thingy
It makes the room look brighter and fresher. Did you notice the old yukky gas fire not a pretty sight and on the long list of things to change. I also started painting the dining table and am nagging K to bring the top of my dresser back in from its 10 year hibernation in the garage. I am so glad I didn't get rid of it and am looking forward to having it back in the house.
Here is a photo of the cakes Belle made for us for when we returned from Southwell at the weekend. Rocky road cakes - they were yummy. Thanks Belle! I promised I would put them on here and I did. She cleaned all her pots and the kitchen too. 10/10.
Here are the museli cookies I made yesterday they are so tasty and you can make them in minutes and depending on the museli you use they taste quite different. Last week I made them using a berry museli and they tasted good too. This week I reduced the sugar by half to make them a little less sweet and it worked well. Here they are
They look a little like rock cakes but they are cookies - honest. Want the recipe I don't think Mary (Berry) will mind. If she does - sorry Mary.
6 oz marg soft
4 oz caster sugar (I only put in 2 oz)
6 oz SR flour
6 oz muesli
Pre heat oven to 180C
Measure ingredients and place all but muesli in a bowl. Mix until smooth and blended. Add muesli and stir in well. Spoon teaspoonfuls of mix on baking sheet leaving room for spread. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown. Cool and enjoy. They really are that simple. Let me know if you make some.
