We've embarked on a big project: having our dining room chairs re-upholstered. We bought our dining set six years ago, sourced at an estate sale. One of the best things about it is that it came with TEN chairs.
Here's a look at our chairs BEFORE. You can see the dusty rose pink and blue stripe through the filthy dirt they've accumulated these last years. Well, they weren't pristine when we bought them but of course The Rascals really did the number on them!
Some of them were covered with red glitter glue, it's true.

The red glitter glue will have to be kept well away from the dining room.
I thought I'd share my recipes for my Sunday Best lunch.
I've been working on perfecting my vinaigrette recipe. These days I am finding a shallot vinaigrette just the thing. The key is to chop up your shallot, soak it in a tablespoon of white vinegar and a bit of salt, and then add in about three times as much oil after an hour or so.
Shake it up and you're good to go. I made two lots, one of them featuring some fresh dill.
Then sprinkle liberally with a fine sea salt, throw them in your 350 oven and remove when they are perfectly golden brown.
You can see this makes a fresh yet filling lunch!
I hope your week is off to a brilliant start.
