Home for the Weekend

This weekend past, I decided to go and stay with my parents on the Northern Beaches for a little home lovin' and comfort. It was really fun to have the whole family together, and see my little doggie Sophie, who is getting very old!

We spent the weekend soaking up the sun, eating, crafting and eating some more, which is certainly right up my alley!

Mom and I found a new pre-mixed brand of Royal Icing Sugar at the supermarket, so we decided to make shortbread cookies.

And I got a new fringe, yay! what do you think?

I made love heart shaped shortbread, and iced them in red and pink, but I fear that my wonky piping is a little more visible on the pink ones... eek!

Mom gets extra points for making these adorable button shapes shortbread, aren't they sweet?!

This is my family! Don't you think my brother has taken Hobo-Chic to a whole new level?  - *cough* Trim your beard! *cough*

But he did make us laugh, with this failed attempt at an Awkward Family Photo.

It was such a beautiful day!

We even found time for some very important crafting and tea drinking. You may see these felt flowers pop up soon!

And Ol' Sophie kept a very watchful eye on us from her bed. No matter how hard I tried I could not take the demon eye's out of the photograph. She still looks cute though! little stinker...

What did you do on the weekend?


  1. It looks delicious! I love baking and I love shortbread as well:D
    But my baking passion doesn't goes together with my waistline :D unfortunately... so, I bake for my boyfriend and his friends at least... :)

  2. Super-cute cookies! And super-cute fringe! I've been thinking about cutting one again recently...
