'Get your bake on!' Etsy List by H is for HomeAnother year, another series of Great British Bake Off. We never get fed up of following it – we’re hooked! We’ve already got a favourite baker and decided on the one we think will win.

Mel & Sue are a great double act and there’s such a chemistry between Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood.

We think the people who enter the competition are very brave. The heat, the pressure and the high standards and withering looks of the judges – no thank you!

Get your bake on!

Mosaic is one craft that I’ve always wanted to try out but never got around to doing. It’s fairly easy to do – or so it seems to me – and the financial outlay on materials isn’t huge. Mosaic can be made using pieces of wood, plastic, glass, stone or the usual ceramic. It’s been around for thousands of years BC.

Remember I said that I thought it was easy to do? Well, I scoured Etsy for homewares featuring mosaic and there was a lot of it available. But so much of it wasn’t terribly good! It looks like it’s not that easy to master after all! Here are some of the items whose quality of craftsmanship I aspire to be able to produce one day!

H is for Home 'Shoots and leaves' Etsy List

I loved Lynne Truss’ book, Eats, Shoots & Leaves. Like her, I’m a real stickler when it comes to (redundant) apostrophes, Oxford commas (I don’t use them) and punctuation marks in general. I compose text messages, emails and tweets with as much correct punctuation and as little abbreviation as possible – a real editorial feat sometimes!

That book title was the inspiration for this week’s Etsy List post. I must go back and re-read it soon!
