I made these lemon tarts last week, and I found the recipe at taste.com.au.
I bought the bases from the supermarket, and added a raspberry on top, aren't they gorgeous. I even amazed myself.
The recipe does say to stir the mixture in a heat proof bowl over simmering water, for 25 minutes. Who does that. I did try it. So after a minute, I poured the water out and popped it into the saucepan and stirred with a wooden spoon for two or maybe three mintues. It started to set beautifully, they tasted delicious.
I used one of Marthas tips for storing my christmas tree lights (all 300 of them). I wrapped each set around some cardboard, I'm already looking forward to next christmas when I unwrap them, and how civilised it will be. Thanks Martha.
Have a fabulous week.xx

This home looks a bit on the smaller side from the front, but that side view is gorgeous.

I love a relaxed country home, with its informal living areas and gracious sense of elegance.
A charming Country home plan can be easy-going year-round living or as a holiday home in the country or by the beach, and we would all love one of them. Spacious porches extend the living space to create a seamless transition between indoors and out.
Country house plans can be one or two stories, most commonly featuring a gable roof with at least one cross-gable or a dormer window.
Country floor plans offer big kitchens, informal living areas, and plenty of room for families to spread out. This is just one of the homes I found. Goreous isn't it.

Hi everyone, these pictures are of my sheers, I love them. The fabric is goregous, so soft. No matter what I did I couldn't get these pictures any lighter. Sorry about that.

Mmmm, I don't think anyone lives here, I love the couch with those cushions though,
I also did some baking this week, just a simple quiche lorraine, but the eggs are from my chickens, and the tomatoes from my garden. I know, I can hardly believe it myself.
This is my lovely giveaway I won from "The Distressed Mother", thank you so much. If you haven't already visited pop over now.xx

I love this time of year when all the tractors are running around, slashing and baling the paddocks, those machines are amazing, I wish I had one.
I found this silver rose bowl at a local antique store. It looked a bit sad, I polished it up a bit on Christmas Day would you believe, well before guests arrived and after the big present event, very soothing, destroyed a few tea towels too.
this is how it turned out, isn't it lovely. I celebrated with a bunch of roses from the garden. I love it. Enjoy your holidays everyone.x
