Happy Friday!...and a pretty package
Posted by Anna Macoboy
Happy Friday! The flower this week is a beautiful hydrangea from my sister-in-law's garden. It is so perfect I had to show you a close up as well :) I have a couple of small hydrangeas at home but the colours aren't anywhere near as nice as this one. I picked this last weekend when we were at Lisa and Tucker's for a delicious Greek-Cypriot afternoon tea cooked by Tucker's mum. I wish I had photographed the food that day because it was amazing - delicious meatballs and freshly-made koupepia (Cypriot dolmades), home-made hummus and the most delicious tzatziki. Tucker's mum is the most amazing cook - she still lives in Cyprus but was visiting for a month to help out with little Dominic, and she cooked us some mind-blowing meals while she was here!
Anyway, onto the pretty package! This arrived earlier this week from Herriott Grace. You might remember a while ago I mentioned that this cloud cookie cutter was on my wishlist. Well, Herriott Grace items are really hard to come by because they only make a few at a time and sell out pretty much as soon as they update their online store with new stock. So when I saw that they were planning an update a few weeks ago, I set my alarm for 7am on a Saturday (despite a late night the night before!) and rushed straight to the computer to order a cookie cutter before they sold out!Yes, nerdy, I know, but I really wanted that cookie cutter :)
Isn't their packaging lovely? And here is the cookie cutter...
...plus some pretty little cake flags I couldn't resist!
So now I think I better get baking! James is away at Meredith this weekend so it might just be the perfect thing to keep me busy :)
I hope you have a lovely weekend!
