More cake and curtains

Autumn and curtains 017There is no rest for the wicked and so I spent most of Friday night in the kitchen making pink vanilla cupcakes with very pink icing. The reason was Against Breast Cancer were taking over Abingdon market place and they were a bit short on cake.

They had an exhibition up by local Oxford photographer Mark Algar. I completely fell in love with a photo of Abingdon taken from across the water called River Twilight (yours in a frame for £110, a bargain I would say). I would definitely recommend checking out his website and book here. On the way home as well as getting a chance to appreciate the beautiful trees and leaves (love autumn)

I totally fell in love with this peacock stamp (I’m thinking maybe fabric print for a roman blind for the spare room???)

There was also a really pretty cup stamp perfect for our fantasy coffee shop, fortunately the stamp shop is online here.

Speaking of window covers our last job of the weekend was to hang one of my homemade curtains. I was really worried the material might not be long enough but it was pretty perfect. I’ll be kept out of mischief hemming these but its great to have them up at last.
