Diggers and C & C Press

It is a little bit of a quiet day today at the tearoom, except for the big digger digging a BIG hole outside the shop.
They're fixing a drain just outside.
I'm still adding little bits to the shop. Mostly hand done stuff such as my jazzed up Ikea clock.
I took it apart, spray painted the outer frame, then got some lovely retro style paper with bikes and mopeds on and cut to size then reassembled the clock. I'm really please with it. I love the paper.

I also needed some blackboards so that I could have my soup and cakes for the day displayed on the wall. I got a thrifted some old frames from a charity shop, got my dad to cut some new board for them to paint with blackboard paint, then reassemble.  I'm pretty chuffed with these too but I'll have to add these images tomorrow. I left them at my parents house to fully dry off.

Experimenting with some cookies today I made rose and pistachio cookies. I had one of these in a cafe in Glasgow and always wanted to make one but couldn't find a good recipe. I did a search online but the ones I found looked a bit complicated and had some ingredients I wasn't sure about so I just messed about with a similar recipe.

They're pretty tasty. I'm looking forward to seeing what people think of them tomorrow.
And finally. I managed to figure out how to scan something on my printer. This is a little article in Glasgow's Evening Times a week or so ago about my little tearoom.
You may have to zoom in to read it!


  1. Hope the digger isnt too noisy - hopefully he'll be gone soon!
    Great idea for the clock - very vintage and in keeping with the tea room.
    The rose and pistachio cookies look and sound lovely!
    Great that you're getting some publicity too!!!
