Our plans for a deck have finally gone in to the Council. I am so excited! It will be half covered by a roof and the other part uncovered. I have been looking for some touches of wrought iron to incorporate into the railing, but haven't had much luck. As we have an older house, I didn't want it to be pine coloured, as it would look too new compared to the house. We have decided on a pine frame (painted a denim blue) with jarrah floor and the pine railings stained the same colour as the jarrah. we are also having one wider piece of pine every now and then in the railing with a pattern of a flower (or something, I haven't quite decided) cut into it. All going well, the builder will start in two weeks, so it should be finished the week after that. Hopefully there will still be some weather warm enough to use it. If not, I will be out there anyway with my hat, scarf and coat on, as I have been looking forward to it for SO long!
Just made some delicious Herb and Sundried Tomato scones. I had some left over light sour cream, so picked some herbs and made these scones. DH and I had one each and I will freeze the rest in small batches.
I have also added recipes for Carrot & Walnut Loaf, Crabmeat patties and an old favourite of mine "Auntie's Chocolate Cake" to my recipe blog.
Hope you are all well and happy and having a WONDERFUL weekend.
