Guest post – Prepare a Mediterranean Feast with Sacla’

De-cluttering your wardrobe and earn money

De-cluttering your wardrobe and earn money

The Easter holidays are perfect for a bit of de-cluttering especially the wardrobes and clothes draws in the house.

More than a coffee table

I walk my dogs through a little village sometimes and there just at the top of the village is a small house with one of their walls pretty much all floor to ceiling window. Every time I go by I want to step in there and sit. It is actually quite dark in there but what draws me to want to go in is their welcoming coffee tables. One of the coffee tables offers a … Read entire article »

Easy edible spring bread baskets

Easy edible spring bread baskets

I was so chuffed when these edible baskets came out so well. Brilliantly easy of course, nice and cheap but most of all how sweet do they look. They can be used for of course a wealth of different idea’s. I tried the idea a few weeks ago, then suddenly remembered that Easter is really a bit early this year. So yesterday quickly did these up with not very exciting bits in my fridge but … Read entire article »

Indulge in chocolate without the calories

Indulge in chocolate without the calories

Well I didn’t say you would be eating it now did I? What do we love about chocolate? Really nice chocolate I enjoy the smell of as much as the taste. Rich smelling with a hint of mellow vanilla but once you have eaten it the smell has gone.
