Day 934: week in pictures


My pictures are a little weak this week. It was a busy one, I suppose. My sister had knee surgery, so I bought miniature daffodils to cheer up her hospital room. The five bulbs came potted from the grocery store, of all places. She loves all things miniature, so I knew she'd love them, but I enjoyed them so much for the two days I had them that I had to go get a pot for myself, too!


I love covered cake stands, and recently discovered that this cheese dome fits perfectly on my Jadeite stand. It takes up less space on my counter than my larger white ones, and holds just as many chocolate chip muffins.


I made two pound cakes for a birthday celebration, and was looking forward to having a slice (or two) with my morning coffee since there was a loaf leftover. Apparently Maddie wanted to enjoy some, too. That stinker! She hasn't eaten off the counter since she ate our wedding cake on our one-year anniversary.


Peeps the Cat doesn't get nearly enough time on this blog (probably because he doesn't eat pound cake off the counter). He loves to curl up in the sun on top of the chairs in the living room, and makes one cute little ball of cat.

The picture of Peeps makes me want to stop by the animal shelter on the way home today to pick out a kitten!

Jennifer said...

Thanks Gail! Mine is antique/vintage (got a good deal on it because it has a chip) but Fishs Eddy has them (love the pale pink, too) http://www.fishseddy.com/browse.htm?VIEW=ALL&catid=185&step=2&sortby=SHAPE

Your photos are great. I told Michael that Tanner ate a stick of butter off of the counter recently. He doesn't believe me but I can promise you that I had two sticks out there!!!

I'm a new visitor - but will be coming back! Love it!

New visitor here too. I love daffodils. What store did you find them in? Also, I am going to make a version of the chair covers/Day 928. Lori

Jennifer said...

Kelly -- those are totally from a Betty Crocker box + extra chocolate chips :)

Welcome, Vera and Lori! And Lori, can't wait to see your chairs!

Elise said...

Looking for a jadeite cake stand myself and am wondering what size yours is? I want mine to house muffings too :) And it's nearly impossible to find one with a dome, so where did you get your cheese dome from? Love your blog and the inspiration you give! Thanks in advance for your help!
