a bit of brownie baking, vintage sheet collecting, opshopping bargains, sleepover fun and breakfasting at a favourite cafe definately makes for a wonderful weekend. the rain clouds passed late friday night and brisbane woke to a super crisp saturday morning. the remedy? bake. tomorrow i'll post the recipe for perhaps one of the most delicious brownie recipes i've ever attempted. some unsettling news that my nan isn't at her best meant a girly evening and a home cooked meal by two of my lovelies was much needed. snuggled under a crocheted blanket cuddling a bowl of latte during breakfast at apples this morning was the perfect lead up to an afternoon of curbside collecting. i've never laughed so hard whilst being sandwiched in the back seat between a giant lampshade, 2 large crates, a retro office chair and a ladder that will soon become the bearer of my favourite fabrics. it was my first official curbside adventure and it has me hooked. i plan on getting stuck into painting the crate and ladder next weekend after a bunnings visit for some paint of the turquoise/peach variety. i'm off to write some love letters and put the kettle on, again. fortunately, i have some brownie leftovers so my tea won't be too lonely on this cold queensland evening. have a great week lovely folk. back tomorrow with that promised recipe.
