Some prettiness for Sping

Its Spring!! Thank goodness! Time for open windows, generous flowers, and lazy picnics.
Last night I went to a vintage fair at Burnside and picked up a few goodies.

This dapper little bow tie for my man

 These awesome 1940s pastel coat hangers. There's 16 of them! So stoked!

 They look so pretty with my vintage lovelies.

And lastly I got these adorable little gift cards

 Our lovely friend Kurt and Rachel gifted us with these goodies. 
How sweet is the hot water bottle cosy?!

After a particularly difficult job this month I splurged and bought myself this magnificent specimen...

 Oh. She makes me so happy!
Other things that make me happy...

Finally I thought I'd leave you with a recipe that I've been loving. I've been cutting down on carbohydrates and sugar lately and adding more healthy fats to my diet. This bread recipe has been my comfort food. Its great with butter and vegemite or avocado. It is also gluten and Dairy free.

Golden Flax Bread

 2/3 cup almond flour
3/4 tsp sea salt
2 Tbsp. organic virgin coconut oil
4 large free range eggs
 3 tsp baking powder
1.5 cups organic flax meal 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Oil a 9 x 5 loaf pan. Melt coconut oil. In a medium bowl, mix dry ingredients together well. In a small bowl, gently beat eggs. Whisk in coconut oil. Stir wet ingredients into dry.  Pour batter into pan. Bake 20-25 minutes or until golden brown on top and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

 It looks kinda gross and boring but is really tasty and the texture is just lovely. It doesn't need toasting and stays fresh for about 4 days. Give it a go!

Love the Bow tie E!
I just need flax meal to make that one! Hope I can - I'm off gluten by direction of naturopath. It feels good!
