Crafting for a BlokeThis month I was inspired by the beautiful little creations over at Life Outside Mainstream to try some Iron-On Transfer craft for my husband’s birthday. He has a fondness for retro/defunct logos and I was able to source this Kodak logo to iron onto a grey T-shirt. It was very easy to do. The t-shirt has already had one wash in the machine and is showing a bit of wear on the transfer. I think it adds to to the ‘vintage’ look, but we’ll see how this goes over time. To create a unique t-shirt, all you need is good quality iron-on transfer paper (for dark clothing) and a colour inkjet printer. Instructions are on the pack. Iron-On Transfer

The older my babies get, the harder it is to photograph them together. I mean…really hard. They never sit still. This was my effort to take a nice photograph for Fathers Day. We ended up with a handmade card and a box of chocolates.

Any advice, tips or sneaky tricks would be gratefully appreciated.

Yesterday I bought this little dripping pot at Salvos for $3. What a beautiful relic of times gone by. It’s from a more frugal era when everything was used and nothing was wasted.

After cooking your meat, you would pour your roasting tray full of remnants and juices into the dripping pot, over the metal sieve. The sieve would catch any chunks and separate all the fatty juices into the pot below where it would form a thick, jelly-like substance.

Dripping was very fatty and flavoursome and usually served with bread. I have relatives who lived on missions and this was one of their staple foods. It was poor man’s food, though perhaps the ultimate in comfort food.

Things I’m loving this month:

1. Birthday celebrations.

2. Vintage tablecloths.

3. Gin and tonic with fresh lime.

4. Roses from my uncle after a hard day with the kiddos.

5. Cheese…with pear, walnuts and a glass of red.

6. Sherman Alexie’s The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian.  It’s targeted at young adults but is a fabulous read and gives insight into the issues facing young indigenous people in America.
