Nigella Lawson's Custard Creams

These look far better than they taste. I used Nigella Lawson's Custard Cream recipe from her book Feast. They were lovely. But not up to placing them in my cannon of regular baking go to recipes, as they didn't have enough crunch. I won't post her recipe here but when I get it or another amended to a great custard cream I'll post that.

Deck the Halls with Boughs of Holly

I was eco-conscious this year and decorated with real holly leaves and berries as opposed to the usual array of plastic decorations I buy and discard. A massive bunch from the flower sellers on Camden Street for only a fiver. Win.

Homemade Christmas Cards

I made a set of these cards for Christmas this year. So easy, it only took me a few mins. I got the image from a website called The Graphics Fairy. In my opinion the BEST source of non copyright vintage material on the net. I have done so many crafty things with spoils from this site. Make sure and check it out - and bookmark it too!
