Current happenings:

Birthday Gift Wrap 
for the very divine Ms C from Bunya House, from Jen Nicholl Jewellery

I have purchased a few of these divine cloches from Bunya House.
Apologies for the bad phone shot!
These hold about 70 decorations and look fabulous on the dining table.
There will be more available tomorrow (22/12)
at Bowral Public School Markets
or contact me here for details.

Some favourites to be wrapped and some are to be kept!
From Nigella Christmas; 
I am making the Christmas Chocolate Fruit Cake for the first time tomorrow. 
Have you tried this???
I will be also making Mince Pies, Brandy Butter and Nanny Nog. 
(the best ever Egg Nog recipe given to me from our Nanny 10 years ago)

Cute Reindeer Noses. 
This would be fun for the little Sparklers using Maltesers and Jaffas.

Mini Sparkler's Christmas Fancy Dress for school earlier this month.

Gorgeous wreath made by my little Sparker. 
Great job, I love it!

I hope your Christmas preparations are going well.

How many Aeroplanes in 25 Seconds?

Cy Kuckenbaker  has created an amazing video. 
Inspired by the incredible image by Ho-Yeol Ryu, a Korean photographer who shot every plane that landed at Hannover Airport in a day and combined all the planes into one image. 
image from here
He wondered if it could be done??? Take a  look!
"I was really surprised by two things: the number of planes that landed in 4 hours (close to 70) and the dominance of Southwest Air"

BLACK BAGUETTES!

I was recently in Singapore for a great function
and was treated to a visit to
Oh my goodness, this is a goodie!
I was told in advance I would be eating carbohydrates,
much to the giggles of my girlfriends.
The relevance of this detail is that it really has to be good for me to bother....just saying!
No way I thought...until I met the SQUID INK BAGUETTE!!!
Delicious...
and so was the curry and grain bread roll with smoked salmon,
 actually it all looked amazing. 



Full of  buzz, friendly service and in a great location.
The coffee is good and the food is fabulous, such creative flavours!
A great local coffee place if you are in Singapore.
A must on your next stopover!
Tiong Bahru Bakery
56 Eng Hoon St
