Eye Spy - inspiration

I get a lot of my inspiration from the cyberworld, and my favourite at the moment is Down___to___earth. Rhonda's almost daily posts on living a simple life are so inspiring. From gardening, baking bread, green cleaning, looking after your chickens to knitting your own dishclothes, I find Rhonda's blog so helpful and she is so generous with sharing information. Her thrifty simple life is something I certainly aspire to. Another great theme from Cindy's Eye Spy...head on over for more inspiration...

Always a great source inspiration are magazines, here is a picture of some mini doughnuts with plum jam we made on the weekend - inspired by the cover this month's V E&T,...they were, in the words of the late, great Joan Campbell, "bloody delicious"....


  1. Hello dear, thank you. I really love that bike. I'd like one like that with a basket. Another thing to save for!

  2. Wow! Thanks for visiting Rhonda - you totally made my day!

  3. I recently started following her blog and have made and am using the washing powder. It is fantastic. And today made bread!

    I read a fantastic book you might like too, "Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: A year of food life." I found it at my local library, if you can ignore the American references to the months of the seasons it is really interesting.

  4. Happy 21+ to you.
    Your doughnuts look very yummy! Lucky I'm eating ice cream right now... thanks for the down to earth link too, will be rather handy!
