Something Old, Something New
No, I am neither getting married, nor planning a wedding. The marriage was nearly 20 years ago, and I could well get involved in planning (a) wedding(s)...
But no...the phrase, this time, refers to a new retail space in our village.
We love this new collaboration in McGregor. Three brands that are the brainchildren of talented McGregorites. One with an eye for amazing historical pieces.
An artisan joiner and a pair of candle makers.
The only (as far as we can ascertain) hand, dipped, 100% beeswax candles in the country.
Made in McGregor.
This will be an ever evolving space as old stock becomes new-to-purchaser items and makes space for new treasures.
I have not only long been partial to vintage and antique items, but this take the old junk shop to a new level combining old and new crafts. It also makes real the ideas of repurposing, reusing and sustainability.
I am doing it again - a very late and cheeky contribution to @dswigle's Market Friday. It is a deviation from my usual contributions that are generally centred on my cookong creations and the village market.
Until next time, be well

- If this post might seem familiar, it's because I'm doing two things:
- re-vamping old recipes. As I do this, I plan to add them in a file format that you can download and print. If you download recipes, buy me a coffee. Or better yet, a glass of wine....?
- and "re-capturing" nearly two years' worth of posts.
