Snippets #18

After my weekend of Cruise Ship styling, and more than enough to keep us both, Tom and I marked this weekend 'relax' and planned, well, not a lot! As always though it didn't quite work out like that and there was some upcycling, jam making and guitar shopping to make the weekend fly-by.
We are lucky enough to have a plum, and apple tree in our garden (along with a couple of blackberry bushes) and I thought I'd make good use of the very local produce. Never attempted jam before but it's pretty easy! Managed to get two jars of plum jam all sealed and ready for eating.
Probably my favourite place in the house, our larder. I gave it a bit of a tidy and sorted what we had there and keep looking at it. Love it. We haven't spent all our time cooking up a storm in the kitchen though, popping out for a lovely curry at the Jalori in Woburn Sands.
Hair wise, I've been keeping it simple with some five minute styling. With the weather being so odd it's much better to chuck it up and just style my fringe - which needs a little trim already! I managed to squeeze in a little shopping at the weekend, picking up this gorgeous New Look Crepe Duster Jacket in plum (obsessed with plum! Oo-er!) and I've been wearing my nan's six pence bracelet she kindly gave me. It's jingles slightly and I love layering it up with other bangles. 
 Tom got his upcycle on, and changed a chest of drawers we'd been given into something that just looks beautiful sat in our living room. He sanded down, then waxed the drawers to give it really lovely matte finish and I can't stop myself from staring at it.
So looking back, a pretty busy weekend! But lots of exciting stuff going on. Oh, and that shiny guitar? Isn't it a beaut! More on that soon.
