Pretty sites, pretty things

Wow have I been busy lately. The Boy keeps pleading with me to not take on any more projects or obligations and the message is slowly getting through. Which now finds me on a bank holiday weekend with the Boy working (new job at A&E - yuck) all hours and noone to play with cos I've not made any plans.

I have, however, gone crazy at the market and now have a kitchen full of tempting spring vegetables.

Will make this tonight I think...

In all my busy-ness I have missed blogland so have spent the last hour catching up on delicacies and have come across these lovely sites in the process...
Matthew Mead style seems to be a male Martha working the Spring pallete like no other. Beautiful pictures but not convinced by his love of 'faux' flowers. I think the above would look gorgeous with real cut blooms pushed into wetted oasis.



Vogue have released their spring patterns and they include these two gems of vintage re-issues. It will only be a matter of time before they come to me...
After a two month placement at the Design Museum, I can now honestly admit to falling head over heels. Max Lamb is just the right side of scrumptious and his pewter stools, made by creating the mould in sandy beaches and pouring in molton pewter, are so tactile. Do watch the video at the link above to see the man himself in action.

Ooooh! Thanks for the halibut recipe. Very lovely fresh Alaskan halibut is showing up in the shops here right now and I didn't really know what to do with it. Did the recipe work out well?
