Bit late with the pictures of Christmas goodies!

Friday, December 31st, 2010

Hi

Ive been so lazy this year getting my pictures of some of the Christmas edible goodies up!  Paul made 730 hand made filled chocolates this year, so many that we couldnt fit all of them on the table I use to take photos on!  We still have a little tub left over too.

Here they are filling the table

Made some new packaging for them this year too, Bandit Chef rides again!

The “this year with love” part of the text drew much hilarity as to what the emotion would be for next year or for previous years, “spleen” got a lot of votes…..well it got mine, its such a good word.

and finally our traditional iced Christmas cake, last year I branched out a bit from the usual Christmas stuff and went with “where the wild things are”, so I thought I might do that again and decided we would have a Totoro Christmas!

Merry Christmas to you all and have a Happy New Year as well.

Huge thanks to Narelle for taking these super pictures of the set, best and worse idea I ever had, not sure I will ever be able to take pictures myself and show them without a degree of shame*L*  Best of luck to the organisers too, its a huge amount of work to undertake but its always a great day for Australian Blythe collectors.

thanks and bye

Is it macaron madness?

Sunday, September 19th, 2010

Hi

Here are the foodie ceramics that I brought home from class the other day, a theme seems to be developing…

and of course that theme is macarons!*L*  These are for a set of glass domes I bought that turned out to be the wrong size!  Finally something to go in them.
