Super Simple Homemade Deodorant Tutorial


I've been making Youtube videos again, I'm finding it can be a lot easier to explain a technique by speaking than typing and a lot of pictures at time.
This time it's how I make my super simple homemade deodorant.




Elderflower Recipe Round-up


Summer is finally in full flow here in Orkney and with that comes the late flowering of our Elder trees which are covered in an abundance of blossom this year.
Now I am on the hunt for ways to use them whilst I can, as the berries never set due to our high winds in September.
So follows my round-up of recipes from around Pinterest to give a try...

The Caravan Dyeing Studio Renovation

Well after creating so much mess and awful smells in the kitchen the hubby thought it a great idea to commandeer the old caravan as a dyeing studio. Bye bye Hogwarts Potion lab, hello another room to make practical and pretty :)

As you can see at the moment it is being used for strorage, mostly fabrics and bedding, but I have grand plans for shabby chic vintage styling in the crafting end, and a bank of dying pots and drying racks in the kitchen end :)

Trust me it's gonna look great, you just need a big imagination !!
