The Sweet Success! Silje’s Bubble Tea

11 10 2009

Oh the ecstasy… The triumph! Ever since I first saw ‘Bubble Tea’ on Elsie’s blog, I have been fascinated by the what? how? & why? of Bubble Tea, and so for the past year (obviously not solidly… just when I remembered lol) I have been conducting some research into how I could experience this uber-cool Japanese drink. The ever-crafty Silje made some not so long ago and I left a comment on her blog asking how she makes it. (http://www.littlebirdcrafts.blogspot.com Silje’s blog – she is lovely and a crafting machine – super clever!) Well Silje left me a sweet note with really thorough instructions and now Robert is my Mother’s brother. (yeah… Bob’s your Uncle ;-))

Viola!

It is a bit ‘kitchen wreckingly’ fiddly to make and probably not a drink I would make often, but the chewy ‘spheres’ are such a mouth sensation. I wish they came in sherbet flavour! I know what the fuss is now. I am satisfied that another of my ‘to do’ list has been accomplished and my holidays have not been so much of a waste as far as the list goes. I have achieved heaps and had so much fun with friends and family. I could get used to not going to work lol.

This gorgeous little square tablecloth is a bargain buy from Vinnies’ They have opened a new op shop store here in Singleton and I wandered in and picked up a heap of pillowcases (to make little shift dresses for the ladies) anyway the tablecloth is just an embroidered jobby just like everyone’s Nana has, but it’s now something I love it to plonk stuff on.

I have layouts to share… tomorrow! Need daylight to photograph them. Rona and I are not-so patiently waiting for the Jacaranda trees around town (there are hundreds of them) to burst into purple bloomingness. I was pretty confident they always bloom in September… a few have had a hint of colour, not enough to get great photos though. We just want to take photos of them, hopefully with the kids co-operating.

OK off to bed now… night all! Lib x

p.s. I used McClelland colourisations actions on the pics.
