Nostalgia + Versatile Blogger Award


To celebrate a much welcomed Friday afternoon, we decided on a spot of baking. Catching up over a cup of tea, a stack of old magazines and freshly baked sweets has always been a favourite past time of ours, and Friday was no exception. When we came across this recipe for Smartie cookies, we were instantly reminded of our childhood; jars filled with brightly decorated biscuits on top of the café counter. Thus, it only seemed natural that we whip up a batch!

We would like to say a massive thank you to Bec, at Daisy and the Fox, for kindly awarding us The Versatile Blogger Award. We are very flattered and grateful for this acknowledgement!


The rules for the award are as follows:
-        Thank the person who nominated me and link back to them in my post
-        Share 7 things about myself
-        Pass the award on to 15 more bloggers that I enjoy
-        Contact the bloggers I have chosen to let them know that they have been selected!

7 things about us:
1. This blog is named after each of our dogs, Honey and Lulu
2. We have been best friends for 10+ years
3. We live two doors apart, on the same street
4. We are avid market-goers – always in search of a bargain!
5. When we were kids, we built our own billy cart and spent every weekend amused by its fun
6. We have the exact same taste in music – Coldplay is our ultimate favourite!
7. We love to spend our free time creating and baking in the kitchen

The deserving recipients we have chosen to award are:
-        Profiteroles and Ponytails 
-        Eat Sweet by Carla Sue
-        Top the Cupcake
-        This Home Sweet Home
-        The Style Department

-        The Sugared Pecan
-        Welcome To My Jungle

Hoping you all have had a wonderful weekend!
