Louis Vuitton and the Handbag Charm

Ahhh...window-shopping.

I do love me a bit of retail therapy.

One of my favourite past times is wandering around the designer shops, fantasising about which piece I'd buy if I had the money.

On the odd rare occasion, something even comes home with me.

DIY gold spot vase

DIY gold spot vase | www.suzy-homemaker.co.uk

With two very important weddings coming up, 2015 is shaping up to be a very expensive year. With that in mind and the amount of saving I need to do if I'm EVER going to get anything done here at OneandSeventy, I've made a pact with myself to get more creative around the place...without spending loads of pennies.

This charity shop find was perfectly useable as it was, but I fancied something a bit more interesting. So, armed with some gold metallic acrylic paint and a toothpick, I went a little dotty!

(Nothing new there, then!)

Do you have a goal? What’s your goal?

Things to Do List from The World of Suzy Homemaker

Ah..January. The time for starting over. For planning and goal setting.

Lots and LOTS of goal setting!

I'll be honest, I haven't done much in the way of formalising goals this year. Partly because I choose to run my business according to the UK Tax Year, so I'm still working on the goals I set in April. The other reason is because my only real plan for 2015 is to build upon the successes of last year and allow things to develop organically.

Business coaches everywhere will be hyperventilating at that one!

Review: Mellow Duck Saxony Side Table

Review: Mellow Duck Saxony Side Table by www.suzy-homemaker.co.uk

I love getting comments on the blog, almost as much as I love cake. OK... I did say almost! Seriously, though, I never tire of reading all your wonderful feedback.

You guys ROCK!

Towards the end of last year, one comment in particular made me swell with pride. It was from Helen, the Director at Mellow Duck, who was keen for us to work together.

When I saw her products, the answer was a big, fat YES!

Apple crumble tray bake recipe

Apple Crumble Tray Bake by The World of Suzy Homemaker

It's almost the weekend! Yay! If you're a Sunday Roast kinda person and looking for a pudding to follow this week's lunch, then you've come to the right place!

I happened across this recipe on Good to Know when I was looking to use up my glut of baking apples. However, being the patient sort (ha!) I couldn't be doing with all that waiting around for layers to bake. So, I pulled a Suzy Homemaker and combined this recipe with my Best Apple Crumble in the World Ever (no, it really is!). Hey presto! Success!

My Apple Crumble Tray Bake also makes a perfect dessert for anyone who, like me, doesn't really do Christmas fayre.

Enjoy!

Review: eFRAME custom picture frames

Gallery Wall by The World of Suzy Homemaker

I always think pictures make a home, don't you?

Beloved and I enjoy having our own photography and creations on display, so when I was approached by online custom picture framer eFRAME to experience the company's service first hand, I was only too happy to oblige.

With such a huge variety of custom and ready-made frames on offer, my choice wasn't an easy one and the company's new Print & Frame option made my job even more exciting! Using the online tool, I had loads of fun uploading my own photos, to see how they'd look all framed up and ready to hang.

What a great gift idea that is!

The BEST apple crumble recipe in the world EVER!

The best apple crumble recipe - www.suzy-homemaker.co.uk

Oh yes!

That may be a bold claim, but it's what Beloved tells me and since I make this apple crumble especially for him, I'm standing by it!

Ha!

OK, so I may be biased, but this really is a crumble of the utmost deliciousness and everyone who's tasted it agrees.

Upcycled charity shop art

Upcycled Charity Shop Art by www.suzy-homemaker.co.uk

A few months back, I spotted a fabulous pair of matching gold picture frames in a charity shop, that I thought would look gorgeous as part of my ongoing master bedroom makeover.

Although tempted to keep the vintage peonies they housed, I really wanted to use the frames for my own artwork.
