Inspiration from around the blogasphere - food, crafts, interiors

Firstly I have to apologise for the lack of posts this month, I took an unexpected holiday whereby I purposely left my lil'ol laptop at home, I had no intention to share any "me" time with him/her, even though he/she does have his/her own little back pack. Doing some thinking while away, I've decided to add a new weekly post of inspirational discoveries from other blogs and websites. I would like to include simple but unusual recipes, crafts, interiors and articles I think my readers will enjoy. I'll be adding direct links to these posts so you can pop over and check them out.  

Latest inspirational discoveries are:

1. Basil Lemonade recipe from Camille Styles - so cooling for Summer

2. A lovely printable note card from The Creativity Exchange. For instructions and download please click on the card below.

3. A selection of fretwork overlay designs to spruce up your vintage finds

4. With Easter on the horizon... step by step instructions from Martha Stewart including a video to make some surprise chocolate eggs.

  1. Happy to see you back, thanks for this awesome ideas. Happy Spring!

    1. Thanks Maribel, unfortunately we are heading for Autumn here after a seemingly non existent Summer, I'm hoping for what we call an "Indian Summer" (late Summer)....I envy your in Spring right now, I hope you have a wonderful Spring with all those little buds bursting fourth into bloom.

      The one great thing for me though is I can post about both seasons which kind of fools me into the fact we are going into winter.


  2. Thank you so much for featuring my printable thank you card on your beautiful blog! I just love everything that you highlighted and thank you for including me!


    1. Your welcome Cyndy, my blog is about Inspiration from around the world, so happy to discover little gems like your card to share with others ☺

  3. Welcome home Lee, I hope you had a fabulous break. Looking forward to more of your great posts - that lemonade looks delicious! xxx

    1. Thanks Vic, managed to escape rain for nearly 12 days!!! Pretty good going considering our summer. I had a great time and should put some photos together at some point. NZ has such amazing scenery, sometimes I don't think we appreciate what a stunning country we have.
