a rather lovely rolling pin

Was making home made pasta tonight at my mothers house and asked her if she had a rolling pin. "yes," she said, "the one you made me".
I opened up the bottom draw and my year 7 wood class came flooding back. I remember it being one of my favourite classes (besides textiles, of course) and I also recall making a spice rack, a little wooden stool and a wind mobile.
I felt rather proud of myself, rolling my homemade dough with my hand made rolling pin. Very DIY housewife!


  1. ah so lovely. my mum still has some of my brothers and my stuff around like this too. its really nice to be reminded of it from time to time, we forget a lot of what we create once its gone from view especially things from so long ago.

  2. wow that's awesome! so cute :)
