look what i got.

It's no secret how much I L-O-V-E Martha Stewart.

The thing is, in South Africa we don't get any Martha stuff. Now and again I find a magazine, and of course we get her TV show, but that's it. So you can imagine what it is like when you get me inside a Macy's store. My husband and my bank balance thank their lucky stars every day that we do not have a Macy's here. I have even tried ordering online, but they don't deliver here.

Anyway, we go to dinner on Friday night with two of our best friends and guess what I get?

this...

I was so excited I could hardly breathe.

Two years ago we were in Washington DC, it was our last day in the US, and we were spending our last few hours doing last minute shopping at Pentagon City. No guesses as to were I was....staring at the Martha Stewart section at Macy's...desperately trying to figure out how I was going to fit as much stuff in my case. I had narrowed it down to the two lightest items that I could find...cookie cutters and the recipe box. I had to leave the recipe box, because it was too bulky.

So you can imagine what it was like when I saw this little beauty. I know it's ridiculous, its a tin box, but we don't get Martha stuff here, so this is huge folks!

Thank you Dale and Kerri, you have no idea how much I love it!

Oh you lucky fish. I am CRAZY about Martha, well her stuff and style that is, after watching her show I sort of went off her a bit! She was a bit short with people and of course only she knows anything sort of attitude! But style - seriously the best. I have a number of her books which i found on amazon and of course we dont get those anymore either. Have you watched any of the Nigella shows - her kitchen is to die for!
