Here is a blank stock take in case you want to take your own stock!
Happy Wednesday x
Clare! Long time no read! It feels like ages ago that we were both complaining about the relative heat and humidity in China/USA. How cool to work part time at the library. And library craft night sounds like a lot of fun. Definitely buy wine! xx
Hi Isabel! Yes, I must suggest wine! Great to hear from you x
Drinking tea at the moment too! And my parents are just back from holidays – they were in Canada looking at mountains and gets and lakes! I could send you my milk. For some reason we have an excess!
Yes please, send over the milk!!! Mountains and lakes sounds gorgeous.
It’s been so long since I took stock! I really should. Loved the image at the beginning of this post. ❤
Yes you should and thanks!
I’m drinking red wine by our roaring fire, and thinking ‘yes, buy the wine!’. And you could totally do the Brooklyn Art Library project. xx
I have my sketchbook from the Brooklyn Art Library! Now I just need to fill it up.
This is a wonderful list. Thank you! How can I get your blog updates automatically?
Oops! Found it!
Yay! Happy to have you along!
