To share or not to share......

Hope you are all enjoying your Easter break! We have had a few great days in the shop, Mildura has been a hive of activity.

Here's a yummy recipe to share (or not) with your peeps, courtesy of Indigo and Quince.

Peanut Butter Balls Baby

1 Cup Crunchy Peanut Butter
1/4 Cup Butter
1 1/2 Cups Icing Sugar
1 1/2 Cups Rice Bubbles
200g Chocolate
15g Copha

Melt the peanut butter and butter in a saucepan on low heat and add to dry ingredients in a large bowl, mix until combined. Form into small balls and put on a tray into the freezer.

When balls are set/frozen, melt chocolate and copha in saucepan on low heat. Drop balls into chocolate, coat with chocolate and fish them out with two forks, put on tray and back into the freezer to set.

Bun in the oven!

No not either of us!

Do you know someone with a bun in the oven? Have you got a bun in the oven? Ever had a bun in the oven?
Well, have we got the thing for you!

You may have seen Printspace art prints in the shop -  fun, colourful and look fantastic on any wall. We are now also stockists of their birth notice art prints.

The print is designed to incorporate the baby’s name, date and time of birth, city of birth, weight and length.

There are 16 designs to choose from and are available in sizes 8" x 10" and  12" x 16"- we have samples of each design in store.

We think these prints would be a lovely keepsake and make a great gift for new parents.

If you are interested come in and have a look, fill in an order form with us and after approving print proof you will receive your print  in 7 to 10 business days.

We have got knits!

Isn't it funny how you have a really cold day in early autumn, you reach for a scarf and it all comes back to you how warm and cozy a scarf can make you feel.....

 We have just this week received shipment of our super cool knitwear from Otto & Spike - made in Melbourne. They have the nicest designs and use some crazy techniques to create the best looking scarves, gloves and beanies we have seen around!

Fingerless gloves...easier to do spirit fingers.....

A new magazine for Mildura

We had a night out on Monday just gone, we were like VIP guests at a new magazine launch!
 Mildura Living launched their new mag, the Autumn edition and as we advertised with them we were so in....
 We had a try of a few local wines and the yummiest nibbles, we even done a bit of networking!!
If you see the new mag around it is worth a look, it has lots of goings on in it for the Sunraysia area, some beautiful snaps and yummy looking Easter recipes (we definitely want to make the dark Chocolate, Pistachio and Sun muscat torte). We also really enjoyed the articles on local artist Anne McMaster and Pepa's Cafe.
