Domestic Goddess

A day out with Gill at The Country Living Spring Fair yesterday resulted in one or two necessary purchases - after all, who could resist polka dot cupcake cases...

With matching red glitter.

I can see that I'll be needing to return to Holly Cupcakes for more supplies in future.

It was also a perfect excuse to play at being a domestic goddess in my beautiful new apron.

Don't you just love that fabric!

Of course the illusion of domesticity is ruined slightly by my not wearing my best frock, high heels and lipstick while I baked... not quite sure pyjama pants and woolly socks create the same image.

There were other purchases made and one or two other blogging friends (plus a big sister) to meet but that will have to wait for another day... if you'll excuse me I'm off to polish my taps...

  3. I know which stall you were at, because I was there not 5 hours ago squeaking at the baking supplies! Funnily enough I was underwhelmed by the rest of the fair but that cupcakes stall - wow!

  6. Loving the apron AND the socks. I have a scarf that looks like those socks. Do yours have pompoms around the edge?

  8. Love the pyjama trousers and socks but am seriously worried by the design on your pinafore.

    Did you enjoy the CL Fair? A friend of mine went and was very disappointed with what was on show.

  10. I think the pants and socks go perfectly with the apron! If you keep posting delicious food I shall have to take you off my list of favourite blogs - you make me want to eat when I shouldn't, but oh my, those cupcakes look good.

  17. Oh the glitter, the glitter thrills me to bits. Love the apron too of course, but the glitter....

  18. I think your pinny with pjs and socks look is quite the thing. I've seen that kind of malarkey in Toast catalogues many a time. You look wonderful, and so does the pinny, oh and the nosh x

  19. The pinny looks very fetching, (I'm glad I encouraged you to buy it!) and the cupcakes look fab!
