Cheap and Cheerful Primulas are planted in the front porch planter.
I usually buy an assortment of colours...
this time I decided to go for the full impact with sunny yellow blooms.
Very pleased with these healthy stalwart plants...
they'll be planted in the garden beds early in the summer.
My spices are stored in these Bon Maman Jam Jars.
I also use them to make a "simple vinaigrette."
Oil ~ 1/3 cup
vinegar ~ 1 Tbsp
salt and pepper (to taste)
a couple of tablespoons of honey
Shake well and pour over salad.
We went to a "hidden gem" here in Victoria.
The Market Garden is located on Catherine Street and it is a wonderful shop!
We bought this tin of Italian tomatoes to use in our spaghetti.
I saved the tin because it is so pretty.
Candles have been lit most evenings here to add scent, warm light and ambiance.
Ethel Wood fragrant candle made on Pender Island.
The scent is fabulous!
I 've been consciously using up "stuff" in an effort not to be wasteful.
We tend to stockpile staples that we use regularly here in The Humble Bungalow.
Buying when things are on special...
to save money.
Soap, toothpaste, tinned goods.
Storage is limited so we need to be creative...
Here's a snapshot of our quarter sawn oak arts and crafts shelving
in The Humble Bungalow bathroom.
Cashmere Burberry scarf...at least 10 years old
Black Eileen Fisher wool tunic top

Eddie Bauer Down Puffer coat
Warmth comes first on my winter walks.
Hope you are staying safe.
