It’s National Curry Week so I thought I’d share this photo of a container full of colourful curry spices.
One of the best smells in the world is a blend of cumin, coriander and turmeric being fried off in ghee (you can keep your chilli powder – it makes me cough uncontrollably!). A couple of cardamom pods popped into the saucepan while boiling basmati rice gives it a lovely flavour.
If I could only eat one kind of food for the rest of my life, curry would definitely be my favoured option!

Vintage coat hooks not over-filled. A simple wooden bench to tie your laces. Ordered, but not precious or fussy. Natural materials & subtle shades. The photo of this coat rack just gives you a wonderful sense of calm.

Autumn colour makes it the most beautiful season of them all. You just can’t help wanting to bring some of it indoors – making displays of golden leaves, seed heads, gourds, berries, acorns and conkers.

It’s National Cupcake Week this week so I may just have to oblige and make a batch.
Justin’s very particular about his ‘buns’ (as he refers to them). He likes his cupcakes without the tooth-aching icing on top. To me, that makes it just a muffin! What do you think? What’s the difference between a cupcake, bun and a muffin? Are you a fan of the current cupcake fad sweeping the world?
I discovered Ampersand Design Studio’s Cream and Sugar range via the Hawthorne Threads webshop and immediately fell in love!
I had my Bernina sewing machine serviced recently but alas it’s been lying dormant ever since. This fabric is just the thing to make me get off my proverbial and get creating!

Today we were introduced to the fine illustrations of Richard Erdoes via the Fishink blog (thanks Craig!).
This illustration of Piazza San Marco is from his 1967 book, Peddlers and Vendors Around the World. If you’re into vintage children’s books this would be a good one to add to your collection. There are currently a few copies available to buy at Abe Books.
Another artist in the vein of our favourite, Miroslav Sasek!
Who’d have thought homemade bathsalts would be so easy to make? 6 parts coarse sea salt, 3 parts Epsom salts, 1 part baking soda and then a few drops each of natural essential oils and food colouring – that’s it!
Perfect as diy presents decanted into pretty bottles and finished with hand-made labels and ribbons.
