August Show and Tell Photographic Challenge

Monday, September 02, 2013

Everything is changing over at Sophie in the Sticks - new name, new look, new photo challenge format. In the spirit of show and tell I decided to share snapshots of the month of August. I found it much easier than following a list as I take shots of almost everything. It was actually quite hard to select just 12 in the end, I counted up how many shots I took of my cats alone - 102. Obsessed much?

I made a pin cushion ring, tried (and liked) Blackberry and Elderflower Pimms, had a new carpet fitted in the hall, stairs and landing and discovered a fool proof way to cook salmon - season well, rub with olive oil, put into a cold oven, turn oven to 400, leave for 25 mins. Delicious!

I tried this DIY tip from Pinterest and it worked a treat, spent far too long hanging out with my boy cat, admired the evening sky and received flowers for my birthday.

I had some 'help' with my workload, I gave into temptation and subscribed to another beauty box... let's see how long this one lasts, I weathered the storm and ate the most fantastic eggs courtesy of my brother's chickens.
