Nothing makes me feel quite so housewifely than making jam whilst wearing a frock and one of Nana’s apron.

It’s a beautiful thing to make something your grandmother used to make, wearing something she most likely wore while she made it.

The jams that I have made thus far:

Strawberry
Strawberry and Vanilla Bean
Blackberry
Raspberry
Cherry (with splashes of Brandy and Marsala)

Today it’s a beautiful 25 degrees here in Sydney!  I headed out at lunchtime to meet my Mr for lunch in the domain.  It was lovely riding my bike in the sunshine, in my dress.  It feels like it’s been a very long time since I’ve done that.  Yay for Frocks on bikes!

Dress:  Vintage, from a store on Crown St in Surry Hills.  It’s so very pretty and really comfortable.  I love this dress so!
Bike:  From Sydney Vintage Bikes, just in case you’re interested.  We have so much fun together riding about town.
