IN SHORT

Home (South Africa) - - READER HOME -

Well done to all in­volved in the Cape Town Homemak­ers Fair. I thor­oughly en­joyed it! I wasn’t able to at­tend last year, so this year I came away to­tally in­spired – ev­ery room in my house is go­ing to get a mini makeover. My pa­tio or­na­ments are look­ing a bit dull af­ter our harsh Cape win­ter so they will get some chalk paint treat­ment.

I read Home from cover to cover ev­ery month and en­joy try­ing out the lovely recipes too. Keep the great ideas rolling! – Ber­na­dine Ponte, Cape Town As a child, I was given a prin­ter’s tray by my mother (it was hers when she was a child) and I hadn’t found a prac­ti­cal use for it in years. Even­tu­ally, with a heavy heart, I de­cided to take it to the char­ity shop as I don’t like clut­ter.

As I was car­ry­ing it to the car, it hit me: one thing Home has taught me is that there’s no such thing as rub­bish, ev­ery­thing can be re­cy­cled! I went on­line only to find a plethora of ideas for re­cy­cling prin­ter’s trays! And this is what I did with mine – now the only prob­lem is that both of my daugh­ters want one too! – Kirsten Thomp­son, Pre­to­ria
