Weekend reading

22 June 2018

Congratulations to Meg Hopeful who has won one of The Simple Home books for her encouraging and helpful comments over the past few months.  Meg, please send me your address so I can post the book to you.  The final book will be given away in December.

I haven't had much time to read and collect links lately so just a short list this week.  I hope you enjoy the weekend. ♥️

Talking to Tricia on the phone this morning and she asked had I looked at Odgers and McClelland Exchange Stores site recently. She told me there were a number of fabulous new products so I went to look straight away. I love the various Kilner products - a fermenter, honey pot, butter churner etc. as well as the large selection of enamel baking and kitchen items they have.  If you've never visited this store before, you're in for a real treat, their link is on my side bar. Their service is outstanding and you'll find products there you won't see in large stores. Duncan and Megan have been supporting my blog for a few years now and I am very proud to be associated with them and their store.
