Mars Bar cakes and a wedding

March has been a busy month with a trip to Lille, a friend’s Wedding, an attempt at baking (yes you heard right) and a good old fashioned knit. Oh and of course some vintage shopping!

As my regular followers will know I had just two aims this month. One was to bake something (!) and the other to have a go at knitting. I also wanted to try to have some fun. I think it paid off well.

I chose to make the mother-in-law some Mars Bar cakes for Mothers Day from The Primrose Bakery cook book. I am no cook at all. I never go in the kitchen and have no idea what most things are used for. I would be hopeless if I was in fact placed in the 1950s! Lucky for me the wife over saw my baking and after my arms hurt from the mixing I was done. The result wasn’t too bad if I do say so myself and the mother-in-law was impressed!

The knitting is going OK, but slowly. You would think that as I travel more than 2 hours a day I would have time to have finished my scarf but so far it’s just looking like a lot of lines on a needle and far from wearable. I really did want to look like a trendy person on the train with my knitting but some how I just havn’t managed to pull that look off (yet).

The wedding I went to was fun and I of course had a good dance in my Vivien of Holloway dress as I had a great big skirt on which was perfect for the job. I’ve never worn black to a wedding but I found pairing it with a colour worked well for a winter wedding. I hope you agree:

I got some lovely photos of the flowers from the day as I had helped decorate the jam jars.

I think it was a great ideas of the bride’s and the mix of all the different flowers worked really well.

My handbag I used for the day was from a blog swap I did! Thanks Katie!

As for shopping I managed to pop into my local vintage fair and see some pretty pieces along with buying a suit (blog post to follow!).

And the mother-in-law gave me some of her amazing dresses she has kept for awhile.

I have always loved the red one, it reminds me of Annie!

So like I say it’s been a busy month! As for next month the aim is to do some outfit posts as after all I have lots of new clothes and need to show them off.

Good bye March and hello April. x
