Laundry make over and Brioche.

 As I told you this first brioche was… a brick!

But I did not dispair  and baked a second one before the bread machine left the house and go to the thrift store!

And this time was a success !

I tasted it with some of my peach jam and it was very good, Bandit agrees!

At the same time, as it was 30 C outside, I stayed inside and worked on my Fall display and used my little glass cloches.

Today, we will have thunderstorm, the heat will come down this afternoon with the rain.

The painter did not want to paint the splash back,but I had some paint in stock and I decided to try… and it is done , no waste I don’t have to change it!
This was the before.
This are the new colours 

The window will be changed and will be white.

On Saturday, I found these light grey plastic baskets to keep vases…on the shelf.

I still have to paint two pieces of furniture, but wait for Mr L to carry them. The new windows will be plain, no wood squares.

It will be better with a new white boiler than this orange colour.

I have got some work left, but have plenty of time to do it.

Bonne journée! To be continued….

  6. I love your felted wool woodland display under the glass domes. Just magical. The painted backsplash looks great! It is all coming together so beautifully.

  7. The fragrance of baking bread is so wonderful, and then to eat a fresh slice. MMMM! How pretty your autumn display is.


A difficult weekend.
