Vintage Finds, Flowers and Strawberries

I picked up a gorgeous vintage eiderdown in perfect condition at a local garage sale this weekend. Nothing like snuggling up in them on those cool winter nights.

Then it was off to the Antique Centre where I just fell in love with this 1950's Du Barry silver service with Bakelite handles and knobs. Looks like it hasn't been used at all. A lovely little addition to the 'silver collection'

 Lillies and roses from the market for me today.

Then I thought about these...I will explain.....I have been drooling inspired by stunning facebook images of strawberries covered in yogurt. Mmmmmm. I thought I would try some myself and they are so delicious and very easy. Just dip strawberries into yogurt and put them in the freezer. I put mine on a plate covered with alfoil so they would be easy to remove. Sure enough they have been eaten, and removed very easily from the freezer! Something different and very Yum!!

 I have been working fabric covered eggs this week using natural linen, lace and and floral fabrics. I will show you through the week.

Have a happy one.

I have sever eiderdown envy, the colours are just gorgeous. I love new quilts but they are just not the same as those old one. Lucky you. :) Enjoy.
The silver service is gorgeous too. Strawberries dipped in yogurt and then frozen, sound delish. Did you use vanilla yogurt?

Pam, your eiderdown is gorgeous and so very you!

Are strawberries in season again? They've been looking a bit mushy recently so I stopped looking at them.

I hope they are back in season because I'm going to give that yoghurt thing a bash!
