Pink Palace #1 The Kitchen Window~


So the story goes…

Mama shipped over too much stuff from the UK. Mama also bought too much stuff in SA before said stuff arrived from the UK..

The result after putting 5 boxes in the shed..

An over cluttered but organised and color coded space!

On the brighter sided I have a good excuse in my daughter who just loves it πŸ™‚

Our kitchen window..

IMG_6730

These flower pots were all found in UK charity shops, rabbit was a very expensive UK purchace, owl was a recent addition from a South African charity shop and the flowers from a UK charity shop. Mama Bird bounces and she is also from Twickenham. Her basket and hat have been taken from a porcelain doll that was given to my daughter. The green dish is for my curtain tie backs at night in case you were wondering.

I don’t wanna start drilling walls so the hand towel holder has ended up on the window, with Allegra’s fairy that she got from my brother from another mother’s cuzza on my birthday, bottles from Twickenham and the Lavender that my Mom put on out house warming cake ❀

Oasis Rose Garden~


I had so many roses and so much oasis after the Ronchese Lifestyle photoshoot I decided to do a mini garden. I battled to find the perfect spot but finally decided next to the bench.

I then decided to do a rose heart and went and picked flowers from the oasis garden.

Had an awesome morning in the sunshine πŸ™‚

Hope you enjoy the pics.

Candy’s Cardi~


So I’d knitted my first Cardi and so wasn’t pleased that I’ve yet to finishing sewing it up. I’m ready to give it another go..

It helps that white has been replaced with the pinky purple colour tieing it all together nicely I thought. Here is how I added the sleeves.

Sitting back admiring what I just created.

Now to add the collar.

Feeling very proud and will publish my new pattern soon but first I need to design my new cardi a matching hat and booties πŸ™‚

Need to find matching buttons but thinking the roses work well. Your thoughts?

I’m liking~

My first attempt~

My Pixie Hat~


So I’m feeling quite proud of myself. Introducing the new member of the Tiny Treasure family..

The Pixie Hat

So my first Pixie hat was knitted for my “niece” Amelie. “Not really but could have been”. Turns out I made it for a really small baby probably a new born. With 2 God children on the way knowing one was a girl and having made the middle hot pink set for her, hoped my other God child would be healthy as well as a girl~

Turns out she is a little girl and she will be called Lyndsay-Sue, so this is for you Princess.

I made a larger set in Pink for Amelie.

I then received an Etsy order for Pink, Purple and White.

Still feeling very proud of my trio~

I have since made a set in blue and love the all so much had to hang them till they all went to their families πŸ˜‰

 

I’ve so thoroughly enjoyed that I thought I’d try some bunting. My flat mate had heard it suggested and passed it onto me.

Check out my bunting blog for more info.

Liphook Lips~


So yesterday I got my run back and boy did it hurt. I really shouldn’t take days off nevermind whole weeks πŸ˜‰

I was heading out for a day in Petersfield and a lady dressed in black with a pink shuffle ran past me. I realised I was cold and very early and went back to fetch a poloneck. I past another lady beautifully decked out in black and white and the same lady with the pink shuffle on the way to the station. I seemed like she did not kow which way to go. I wanted to stop her and ask her if I cold jog with her.

My PIP (Partner in Pink) went and fell pregnant. πŸ™‚ I’ll be a Godmother ;( I got no one to jog with. I’m sitting with a cup of tea in the garden enjoing the suset and Liphook Ladies comes to mind. Liphook Ladies in Pink comes next. Am I about to start up a casual ladies jogging group I don’t know. I’m not looking forward to running the race for life alone.

1 rule you gotta wear something pink!

Candy’s Cupcakes~


So the more I bake the more I tweak. A cupcake should be a special treat, due to it’s specialness it should be treated often. You don’t always want 12 cupcakes and many recipes are difficult to half or quarter. For this reason I have mastered a recipe that makes cupcakes in multiples of 4. MyΒ flat mateΒ is lactose intolerant so I have tried and tested this recipe using soya milk and butter on many occasions. I only eat cupcakes with butter icing and can sadly say that somehow non-diary soya icing tastes better.

Candy’s Vanilla or Chocolate Cupcakes (makes 4-6 cupcakes)

1/2 tablespoonΒ Β Β Β Β Β Β Β  Milk

1/2 tablespoonΒ Β Β Β Β Β Β Β  Vanilla essence or cocoa

  • If you notice this is the easiest recipe to remember 50×3 plus 1 and 2 halves!

  • Before you start please put your oven on 180 and prepare your muffin tray with paper cups in place.
  • No mess, no fuss add all ingredient in a bowl and use an electric mixer until well combined.

  • Use 2 dessert spoons to share batter equally into cups.
  • Tray into the oven for 10-15 minutes, depending on size, they should double the size. Vanilla will be slightly golden brown and chocolate rich cocoa. Poke with a cocktail stick if you are not sure if batter remains on stick cookΒ a little longer.
  • Remove and allow time to cool whilst making the icing and washing up.

Butter Icing

Unfortunately it’s time to go running I’ll update this bit at aΒ later stage. I haveΒ not taken icing measurements do it to taste.Β Will measure next time I bake. In the meantime I’ll share some pics with you. I had my friends decorating theirΒ own cupcakes the other day, looked like they were having so much fun!

New Hobby~


Love, love, love my new hobby. Got some material, needles, cotton and accessories. Cut open one of my pillows for stuffing and got creative.

I now need toΒ locate stuffing and restuff the pillow~

I’m thinking my little love letters would make great fridge magnets so I tried it out.

Thoroughly enjoyed making and stuffing the hearts and they have all been given away. I have been comissioned to do a personalised one with a persons name one it. Feeling quite pleased that she thought my efforts were worth Β£5.

Three Special Trees~


Mag Mag (Magnificent Magnolia)

You are the master of your own destiny~

β™₯ every second!

JustΒ had to shared my new desktop background Mag Mag. Just thought of that trust me it was not my intention and certainly not how I intended starting this blog, the Magnolia is simply Magnificent!

For the love of pink I must tell you I opened up the Metro todayΒ which is a free newspaper available onΒ UK public transport. SoΒ most papers hereΒ have rather distastfully dressed ladies on page 3. The Metro however does not and today they featured a single Mom of 2 whose entire house is tastefully decorated in pink. She mentioned that most people thought she was over the top but I fell in love. I didn’t get a photo but I’ll hunt it down for you.

Back to my special trees. There are 3 major trees in my tiny little garden and I loved them through the snowy winter and excitedly awaited the arrival of spring..

# 1

When the first treeΒ budded inΒ pink I was ever so thrilled. The thought that any of the other trees would be pink never entered my mind.

Instead I planted 3 different shades of pink primroses. So it was a bit too cold and they had flowered way too early and only hot pink remains.

This is the first blooming blossom, the cold and rain dissolved them all very quickly. They did wait for Magnolia to blossom and what a sight to see. I’m searching for a shot of the blooming blossom and the Magnolia, I’m amazed that I can’t find one.

Instead IΒ will share a photo taken shortly after Mag Mag bloomed. I was so excited to findΒ three trees that were different shades of pink that wouldΒ fit into one photo. And a lovely photo at that.

# 2

My flat mate and I knew she was a Magnolia but had no idea what colour she would be. Much to my excitement she budded in pink too. This is when I confirmed to myself that I am exactly where I am meant to be.

These beautiful pink buds have brought me endless amounts of joy. It is such a treat heading out on a spring morning for a coffee and a cigarette. I’ll get onto a blog of my garden birds, between them and the pink blooming trees my garden is a most wonderful place to be.

On closer inspection she gets even prettier, nature is a most wonderful thing.

It saddens me greatly that I may not get a shot of 2 pink trees in my garden. I’m pretty sure I missed 1 and 2 (will thoroughly search C: tomorrow) and 2 might possibly notΒ wait for 3.

Lots of pretty pink petals scattered all over the ground 😦

But wait there is still hope, this blog talks about three trees. May I introduce

#Β 3

I got home this afternoon to the most pleasant surprise. The tiny hot pink buds I was raving about on Facebook have started blossoming. These are the only few, I’m really hoping after a glorious sunny day I’ll wake up tomorrow to loads of little pink flowers. I have now assured myself that there is no other place that I should be. I am the master of my destiny!

I β™₯ Pink~


So as I previously mentioned I have a unhealthy obsession for all things pink. If it comes in pink I’ll take one, or maybe I’ll take two (slight OCD tendencies kicking in right there). Now that I mention it I thought I might share the fact that I hope to one day publish a book on decorating your home for people who suffer fromΒ OCDΒ tendencies. Back to pink, you’ll have to bare with this working blog. I’ve scoured my computer for a couple of pink shots and possibly found more than I can handle for now. So I uploaded them all, gave them all a caption and will fill in the details as soon as possible.

Pink Hyacinth~
March 2011

Please excuse the slightly blurred pink hyacinth, I have more focused shots of different colours which you will soon find in my flower blog. I have been experimenting with my camera on manual and sometimes I just can’t get the right shot.

Flower Cupcakes~
March 2011

These were baked for a special girly picnic. The ladies loved them and I throughly enjoyed every second of every hour I spent decorating them.


Pink Gardenia Blossom~
March 2011

Very shortly my garden will have a big tree full of these beautiful flowers. I can’t wait, spring has sprung a month early and everything is looking so beautiful.

Pink and Red Roses~
December 2010

A little cheer you up gift from a special friend, they saw me through the end of 2010 into 2011.

I love Candy~
November 2010

This photo was taken at a beautiful shop in Edinburgh

From London Bridge~
November 2010

Sunset from London Bridge is definitely something we all need to see.

Dubai Islands~
October 2010

I was lucky enough to capture this amazing lighting over one of Dubai’sΒ many man-made islands on a flight to London. It was even more special because it was the day after my 29th birthday and I a little anxious about turning 30 (see about me blog).

Birthday Bouquet~
October 2009

I invited the girls round for a garden tea party. I themed it pink and apparently so did they. Just love it when the girls get it right.

Pink Rose Duet~
2009

A sad wedding story will be saved for another day, she is still trying to get a divorce.

Hand Knitted Duck and Bear~
2009

A year spent investing a lotΒ of time and energy into a charity business called Tiny Treasures, I designed gifts,Β created an income for underprivilegedΒ people and donated to a charity. Here is a Baby Shower bouquet with hand knitted duck and bear, there were matching socks too.

Moms wedding gift~
2009

Don’t Mom’s just do it the best. That tower was filled with the most amazing wedding goodies.

Red Cheek~
2009

This wild little bird caused much heartache and was eventually set free. Not before he danced around my little garden thanking me for all my love and care.

Watering Can~
2009

Just had to share it.

Baby Bunny~
2009

This little thing grew up to be the bravest strongest rabbit I ever knew. Sham ShamΒ was his name, meaning smell smell in arabic. He protected the baby bunnies from the cat who was ready for easy pickings.

Baby Browny~
2009

One of the babasΒ that wouldn’t be here today had it not been for Sham Sham. BrownyΒ is now owned by my nephew Joshua and has had many a offspring.

I have decided to take the time to copy over my 365 Pink album from Facebook.

Hello World~


So here we go my first blog, I’ve kept WordPress’ original name for it…

I’m not the best writer, but it’s something I’ve always wanted to do and recently gave it a try. Now its time to attempt blogging.

Let me introduce myself. I am halfΒ Italian, half Portuguese, born and raised in South Africa. Proudly South African. I have been a gypsyΒ for little over 10 years now. I β™₯ to travel, I β™₯ discovering new faces and places and I’ve managed to pack up my entire life into international travel sized luggage on many occasion.

I’ve lived in South Africa, United Arab Emirates, Scotland and England. I’ll hopefullyΒ be moving to Spain in the very near future which bring me to my β™₯ of warm weather, beautiful beaches, diving and boating. I β™₯ Africa, I’ve visited Botswana, landed in Kenya andΒ enjoyed many a trip to Egypt. The middle eastern hospitality is unmatched but closely followed by Thai. Enjoyed many years in Dubai, spent time in Bahrain and Qatar. Been fortunate enough to visit Thailand 3 years in a row and wish I could go every year. I’ve attended a conference in Toronto and visited Disneyland when I was young. I’ve been to Dracula’s Castle in Romania andΒ stayed in the Ritz Carlton Istanbul. Been back to my roots in Milano and gondaleuredΒ throughΒ Venice. I’ve bought tulips in Amsterdam, visited one of Europe’s largest Castles in Austria, landed in AthensΒ and attended more than one Oktoberfest in Munich.

I have a bad obsession with all things pink, I β™₯ taking photos and need a new camera. Wild about water birds and go duck hunting (camera loaded) as often as possible. I’ve recently been fortunate enough to spot some rare critters but more about that later.

I have 2 brothers whoΒ have each given me an angelicΒ nephewΒ and 2 half brothers. The elder has given me three beautiful nieces andΒ two nephews, the younger is still a teenager.

I’m currently living in a quite English town called Liphook and IΒ β™₯ it, spring has sprung, the blossoms are blooming and I knowΒ long summer days are not far away.

2011 My Garden, Liphook, United Kingdom

It was a beautiful winter, I hadΒ seen snow on few occasionsΒ howeverΒ I longed for real snow that lasts days andΒ turns everything to a standstill. Well I finally got what I wished for and I would not have chosen any other place to experience it. Liphook is lovely but once it’s covered in snowΒ the entire town turns into something more beautiful than Narnia could imagine.

2010 Radford Park, Liphook, United Kingdom

I’m a passionate about coffee which can only be drunk with a smoke. I’ve been promising my mother for more than 10 years that I either fall pregnant or turn 30 before she nags me to quit smoking again. So here I am 29 and 5 months to the day. Got another 7 months before I’ll really be able to appreciate the taste of my coffee.

I think that’s it for my first blog~
