I haven't got much to show in the way of finished projects this week - I have been working away on things but most of them are intended as Christmas gifts.
I did however find this glorious old cake platter in the op-shop next door to my workplace, and had to make a chocolate cake to place on it when I got home.
The cake is just a plain recipe but two-layers sandwiched together with berries and cream in the middle, and the plate is marked 'Lord Nelson Pottery' on the back and has gold leaves printed around the edge.
Another very good thing is that there is a tangle of sweet peas in the garden at the moment - self seeded from last year, so effort-free as well.
This is a beautiful article that I enjoyed recently and thought you might, too - On Optimism and Despair, by Zadie Smith.
