A nut of our own
The pretty little vignette above was part of the centrepiece in a table-setting challenge set by Jennifer at The Felt Mouse. You can read all about it at The Trad Pad. The cup and saucer are plain glass I've decoupaged with rice paper and a pretty rose. Around the saucer are some of Mac's Macadamia Butter Melts and in the cup are some green and white boiled lollies known to some as "rock candy". I am rather proud of the Macadamia Melts. In this globalized world, the Melts have that wonderful ingredient, the Macadamia Nut, which is an Australian native and was, before commercialization, known as the Queensland Nut. The Melts come from Mac's Shortbread Company in Kerang here in Victoria. A beautiful melt in your mouth product that is still home-grown and home-made.
