Welcome to September’s giveaway. This month we’re working with Trinca Ferro. Originally launched in Brazil over 18 years ago, Trinca Ferro is an online hardware boutique specialising in decorative knobs and handles.
They have a huge range to choose from on their website, in materials such as metal, glass, ceramic, bone and resin.
If you’re fond of getting stuck into a bit of furniture up-cycling this competition is for you. Even if you’re a DIY newbie, changing the handles is the easiest & quickest way to give a new lease of life to a treasured chest (see what we did there?) of drawers or wardrobe.

In a larger bowl, cream the butter & add the sugar gradually, beating until fluffy
In a measuring jug, lightly beat the eggs then add them to the butter & sugar mixture
Add the dry ingredients bit by bit, alternating with the milk
With each addition, combine until the ingredients are incorporated well but do not over beat
[At this point I divided the batter into 3 equal parts and added: (1) 1tbsp poppy seeds, zest & juice of 1 lemon, 2tbsp self-raising flour (2) ¼ Bramley apple, cored & grated + 1tsp ground cinnamon (3) 1tbsp cocoa powder, 3 pieces of crystalised ginger, finely chopped]
Carefully spoon each of the mixtures into cupcake liners, filling them to about the ? mark
Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the center of a cupcake comes out clean
Allow to cool in the tin for 15 minutes or so
Lift the cupcakes out of the tin on to a wire rack and allow to cool completely prior to icing
We’ve found good homes for both. The cloud mobile is hanging from the kitchen window, watering the seedlings beneath – and Dee’s poster is now hanging in our bedroom. It’s a lovely illustration whatever the weather!
Having said that, it’s a very apt artwork for us – we live in Todmorden in the Pennines, one of the wettest places in the country!
