strawberry jam


as promised yesterday I made some strawberry jam ... perfect with my crackers! I'm like mr. wallace, I like my crackers! ; )

recipe for the jam? I used this one. it seemed easy and quick to make. I increased the strawberries to 1.5kg (and the boiling time) but kept to 1kg sugar and skipped the butter.
wishing you a sweet day! : ) .p

strawberries


one of the joys of spring for me ... new fresh, juicy and tasty fruits of the season. right now, strawberries!
where I live they are locally produced and the fields are now dotted with tiny bits of delicious red. I have been eating strawberries everyday for the past week and yesterday I got a bag full of them for jam.

fabulous garlands


garlands by sophie cuvelier ... fabulous!

found these yesterday lying on the grass in the park ... someone picked them and left them scattered. I know it is from a bush but don't know the name. any idea?
hope you have a lovely day! in here it is hot (33ºC/91ºF) and sunny and blue skies ... it feels like summer : )

disaster


a piece is perfect and neat ... just to come out of the kiln like this! not exactly a disaster but something that happens often when working with porcelain and push the boundaries trying to experiment new things. it doesn't mean the result is not interesting, or at least curious :)

matilda


I had to share this ... yesterday in the studio! : )
