Can you believe Easter is just around the corner? I can't. I feel like I have just gotten over Christmas and with this pregnancy time seems to go a lot quicker. I was going to post my family favourite Hot Cross Bun recipe but I thought that was pretty mundane really so I went to my friend Pinterest for inspiration. I have come up with a list of delicious recipes that you could make this Easter.

Do you have projects lying around the house that are on your to do list but it seems that more things get added to the list before it. This is what happened with these two pieces of furniture. I finally gotround to restoring these two pieces of furniture that I have had sitting around under the house for nearly close to 6 months now. Thankfully we have a large storage space under the house!

Autumn is setting in slowly with the mornings becoming cooler and the days are slowly getting shorter. The leaves have not quite started turning colour yet but I love it when they do. The vibrant reds, yellows and oranges displayed in all there finery before they die and are blown away. Sad really.
To celebrate Autumn I made this Beetroot Galette with some of the heirloom beetroots from my veggie garden. The vibrant colours were just outstanding, playing against each other. Seeing them layed out side by side on the cutting board, I knew I had to snap a picture of them.

I have been slowly going through pinterest looking for Nursery inspiration and ideas. There are just so many beautiful idea's out there and I am finding it difficult to narrow it down to a selection of a few ideas. Follow me here on Pinterest. Some of the pictures that I found are pretty unrealistic though - who keeps an immaculately tidy nursery with a newborn? I doubt many people do - but I can dream!

Hey all... I know I didn't get to post a Tasty Tuesday post... and well I just couldn't face talking about food this week again. Hopefully I will be able to bring you something next week.
However I have been busy still. Just doing something a little bit different. A bit of graphic art has been happening over here at TheWhimsical Wife.

During my IVF treatment and and proceeding my pregnancy, up until now I have had not a lot of interest in renovating any pieces of furniture or even going hunting to find some to do. It was made me sad and frustrated to feel like this because it's in my blood to be creating, decorating or renovating something. I just had to be patient and wait until I felt better. Now that my morning sickness has subsided and my energy levels have increased my fingers are twitching to do something.
