In January I had the splendid opportunity to work with Supa Centa Moore Park on a little makeover project in my parents' backyard. Having only lived in apartments as an adult and therefore never having had a garden of my own to channel any creative energies into, it's safe to say I was a little bit excited to play outside for a change.
Oh my! It's been two months since my last con..Head + Heart post. We should have a lot to talk about..
I'm still waiting for the day that a single cellophane wrapped long stemmed rose don't make me shudder and screw up my face but I have to admit to being rather fond of Valentines Day these days. I mean there's the fact that I can get away with a stupidly soppy homemade gift plus a Bachelor-like date. Okay, not so much the second thing.
Anyway, here are a few ideas I knocked up for the crafty lover.
Erin is one of my favourite internetters and I am so stoked to have her here to introduce to you today. If you don't know Erin, you need to. Her beautiful blog is a total a treat, with baked goods and fun DIY's in abundance. She's also full of wisdoms and SO lovely - and I'm not saying that because she made me cherry tarts or indulged my obsession with her mum's chickens.
Chooks aside, if I WERE to be bribed, it would be with with these cherry tarts. The pastry is spot on, the frangipane just the right amount of sweet and the cherries just the teensiest bit tart. Anyway let's chat to Erin and have some tarts, yes?
