After the excitement of yesterday, today has been really rather uneventful.
Luckily, I was able to lose myself in the alchemy of the kitchen turning plums into jam...
Damsons and blackberries into spiced cordial (half of this will be added to some brandy or vodka to make something special to drink in front of the fire this winter, cosy picture, eh?)
And cucumbers into dill pickles. Coupled with the beetroot chutney and elderberry & blackberry cordial I made earlier this week, if we had a larder, it would be groaning.
Here are a few little things I found last weekend, I expect I'll get round to putting some of them in the shop next week.
Tiny kaleidoscope - it has the prettiest little circus-y drawings all over it.
Wonderful 1960s (?) map of Barcelona, wouldn't the image below be great as a poster?
Jolly Bearskin dish, in its original box, it looks as though it's never been taken out! It reminds me of the illustrations in M Sasek's This Is London.
We're going camping tomorrow, one last hurrah as the weather has been rather lovely the past two days, and you've got to make the most of that haven't you?
