You can never have too much bunting around the house can you?
These vintage hankies were in the letterbox when I got home, so I knew that they were destined for a new life.

And how could I possibly NOT try this recipe, and as my 4-year-old would say “easy peasey lemon squeezey” and it really is.


Off to bake some cakes, have a wonderfully creative day sweet friends
