Toy donuts for Clementine.

 For some reason, I was itching to make felt donuts.
There are so many cute ones on Pinterest!

So what do I do now that I've made half a dozen toy donuts?
I certainly can't keep them for myself so I'm giving them to a little someone across the pond who I'm sure will play with them well!

These were so fun to make.
Perhaps I'll move on to make other pastries?

Nah~ I have too many half finished projects to complete first.

Green Tea Ice Cream

Last year, I tried to make green tea ice cream. It didn't turn out that great because it was more icy, less creamy. This time, I tried to make the texture better and added dark chocolate bits. I used this green tea ice cream recipe, except added more heavy cream to get the texture more creamy and soft. Green tea is bitter so I also made brownies to accompany the ice cream.

Postcard from the Bay Area.

For my annual vacation, I went to Berkeley to visit some very good friends!
I did the very artsy thing and took my vacation photos on film.
I put my handy dandy 35mm Holga to good use.

I did most of my shopping at Daiso...

I wanna go back there again!
