Matt Corby - Souls A'fire

Welcome back Alex and Grant..
(caught in the 60's at Alices' 21'st...)

Thanks to Emma via Facebook, for the photo.

Another Paper House...

Make a pattern and cut it out. Leave little tabs on the sides where you have to glue.
Then use the pattern to cut out the house from some heavy paper.
Paste paper squares over the back of the windows, and pin prick them (to diffuse the light).
Then stick it all together.
I used the LED tea lights, which look really sweet glowing in a dark corner...

What's For Dinner...

Pan fried chicken breast, with sautéed mushroom capsicum and zucchini
 and ricotta and chili jam sauce.
With salad.

(The ricotta and chili is a great simple sauce.)

Memories Of Rome...

Looking up towards Maria Maggiore on a morning stroll near our Hotel.

The top pic is near the Spanish Steps, the one with the fountain is in a courtyard at the National Gallery.
And the bottom left is another one f the familiar streets where we often ate.

Evening lights at the Piazza della Repubblica.
This is one of the buildings flanking the Trevy fountain.

Last week I watched a couple of episodes of Master Chef,  they were in Italy.
 It made me nostalgic for that beautiful country.

Driving Over The Strathbogie Ranges...


On the way up to Sydney we turned off at Merton and drove over the Strathbogie Ranges in the early light.
It was just beautiful.

High Tea Inspiration...

Or What's On Marjs' Table?...
It's all about balance...

Piling up plates,  candle holders and tea cups... you do need a bit of glue.
All the inspiration for a crazy 'High Tea'... even using an Led Tea Light under a glass.
(the' T 'Cozy is from Lib)
Finished off with a sweet little posy from Marjs' garden.
