Sconetastic is another line stolen from
If you don't already know her blog, pop over and visit. She is full of inspiration regarding all manner of domestic and international stuff.

These wonderful scones were consumed by a group of us by the creek in a rather idyllic setting.

After footy and netball, a group of us visited a friends farm where the blokes went all macho and chopped wood for our fire.

See the colour of the redgum.
It is rather magnificent.

The boys were cleaning up trees which had fallen over after the January storms and floods.

Whilst they were hard at work, we ladies kept the fire burning and kept half an eye on the children.

 It's a long weekend here for the Queen's Birthday.
 This morning Mr M made pancakes for breakky.


I attempted to take shots to show off the table Mr M made.

I will keep trying,
I need to do it justice.
I may have to try tablescaping al la Sarah from abeachcottage.

Sarah always gets it white right.

To steal more lines from Faux fuschia,
I luff the new table 11/10.


  1. It looks like a mighty fine table Deb. Congrats to Mr M. And as for those scones. I can't make a scone to save my life so I'm just as impressed by them as I am by the table. Hope that's ok :)

  2. I also LUFF the table, the sconetasticism of this post & all that is delicious here. Love Posie

  3. Oh yes Deb, I'm luffing the table as well :) Not to mention those scones and pancake deliciousness. It's been an age since I've had a crepe or similar. Yum. Doubt Lyn would make the for me though, he incinerated bacon the other day in one of his rare kitchen efforts :)

  4. Fabulous, just fabulous table. You have a very talented Mr.
    Oh, and those scones look great too - no matter what I do my scones never rise!

  5. Oh God Deb I'm hungry! Lovely to hear we now share a Lulu - ours is a blonde 2nd generation Spoodle. And as for that table - hooley dooley Mr. M is a star!

  10. What a gorgeous table and the pcitures of those scones are making me hungry and I just had dinner. I love scones on a Sunday or as in this case PH Monday, think I will have to make some next weekend. Hope you had a great long weekend. Gx
