I'm Home Grown


i'm going to miss the organic vegetables my dad brings home on wednesdays, and not needing to water our cabbages because of unseasonal rainstorms.
jumper - daddy dearest's

but the necklaces both my sisters bought me for my birthday will remind me of home when i'm far away from it.
carrot and watering can necklaces - karen walker

i will have to recreate this sandwich when feeling homesick, and pretend to be back safe by my fireplace, listening out for the thunder.
bacon, dijon mustard, mayonnaise, shredded raw cabbage, cucumber and victorian chutney on homemade bread.



i don't know why i never remembered to listen to scarlett johansson sing...thank you electronicrobots for the timely awakening.

Those necklace charms are darling. I love the fresh food I get at home too (fruit and veggies just waiting to be devoured!) makes me feel so ill to return to "school" food at college.

What's in the chutney?

fash said...

it's baxter's victorian chutney, it's got apples and dates and sultanas and spices.

We only learn what we've got when it's (almost) gone, huh? Then again, you'll feel absolutely thrilled and SO happy every time you go home.

Good luck with college, darling!
