Brave the heat......

 I brave the heat this morning 38 degrees ........and water my garden :)
As you can see on the pictures, my backyard is doing quite well. Bamboo plants are getting taller and the vegetable garden are doing too well :)
I am so enjoying my life here in Melbourne and just accept the weather with lots of rain last month and now the heatwave, according to my phone it will go to 40 degrees this afternoon!
I love celebrating Christmas in this weather and can't wait my family to come over this weekend!

Thanks so much for visiting my blog and wishing you All a Very Merry Christmas!!!


FROM OUR TREE TO YOURS .........
HAPPY CHRISTMAS!!!!!

Theresia and family!

French and Dutch apple tart


I love baking and this is the first time I have made my favourite Dutch appletart (appeltaart in dutch)
Growing up in Holland I have been missing it so much.
It's actually very simple to make and you have probably all the ingredients in your kitchen. 
If you want me to write down the recipe just leave a message below.

This one is called the Normandian appletart. Can you see the difference between the Dutch and the French apple tart? The Dutch appletart is quite high in size.
What I love about these appletarts ........... everything :)


Both appletarts were a big hit with my friends ................

Wishing you all a very happy Weekend :)



Something Blue treasury


Beautiful Wedding treasury curated by Ina!

Hello I am back....

 Hello....it has been a while!
We have been so busy doing up the Aussie home and the garden .
We have been shopping quite a lot in the city and Geelong to find good stuff for the home,  most have been purchased in the Smith , Lygon and Chapel street. 
Armadillo rug is purchased when I was in Sydney last month but you can get them now in Smith Street. Armadillo rugs are beautiful rugs and you can view more here


Can't believe it has been 2 years ago since we moved to Melbourne from the UK and we are loving it more and more. Melbourne grows on you and has so many cool hidden places.....and of course cafes with the best coffee in the world! My eldest son is thinking to do a Barista course soon, yes!

Weather has not been really good at the moment but that's why maybe I love Melbourne so much! Where do you get 4 seasons in a day? My garden is also doing well with all the rain as you can see on the picture.

See, we have been eating quite a lot from our vegetable patch :)


I have also got a suprise for all of you!
I will do a Book Give Away for all my readers..........
I have been asked a while ago to participate and do a project for Mollie Makes Woodland Friends Book.
The Book has been released last week in London, the 7th of November 2013.
So hope you are up for it .......... I will be back later today with the Give Away Book!
I will keep you posted!

Thank you !

I have been working hard on my custom orders and new design, hope you like the new penguins!
They really have turned out so cute and will look so great on your wedding cake. 
Great for a winter wedding or if you like penguins a lot (like me)!

They are available in my shop and if you prefer a different colour, tie, waist coat etc .... I can customize all this for you!

Happy July !

It's been a while since my last post!
I have taken a month break from the blogging world.
Not nice and nice things happening to us the last month, I am so glad it is now July!
I am also considering to maybe stop blogging but as I can see on my Stats I do still get lots of people visiting my site. Thank you for your support.

We have a beautiful little girl and her mum visiting our Aussie home last month staying with us for 2 weeks, all the way from Singapore.
It's my sister's grand daughter little Lizzy..........




I am so inspired of making lots of beautiful little dresses and toys for her :)
We can't wait to see Lizzy her mum and dad spending Christmas with us this year.


I have just added two little birds to my Etsy shop today and it is a smaller version for a small size wedding cake.

It is made of a natural linen fabric and it looks like burlap. I love the Rustic look of the birds.

Wishing you a beautiful week!
