Oh, Wouldja Look at That!

Isn't this lovely? I found it via Linda at Restyled Home (see sidebar) where she features Matthew Mead. There are terrific crafts and beautiful things to see at his site. I am linking to this craft with all the directions right *here* under the style section.

Yes, for all of those who are visiting from outside the U.S., it's interesting to see that here we are still in the land of pumpkins, leaves, and fall decor. But that craft has sooooo much potential, don't you think? I can see vintage Christmas cards, postcards, photographs, etc. What can you see?

This morning finds me baking the cake that I didn't bake yesterday. The carpenter was in the middle of such messes that I couldn't bear to turn on the oven and roast him out. He's forever asking who turned up the heat.

Anyway, it smells heavenly. The cake that is. Lately I feel like an echo or a director of blogs. Look at this! Look at that! Oh!! Now this would be lovely! Maybe some fine day I'll get an idea of my own to share. The cake, back to the cake. It's the recipe that Tina posted yesterday at Cherry Hill Cottage . Her directions and photographs made it all too simple. I'll let you know how it turns out. Did I say that it smells wonderful?

Edited to Add: Oh dear! I knew that cake was smelling way too good. It had 14 minutes left on the timer, but it is done plus a teensy bit more. That oven of mine!


  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog with your lovely comments. I appreciate your giving us a heads up on other sites.

    The cake smells wonderful :>0

  2. It is a rare idea indeed that is truly and completely our own! The people I admire the most are the ones who can acknowledge where their ideas or even inspiration for a thought came from, and you always are careful to do that! You are a classy lady!


  3. I can smell that cake from here....I have not yet found Victoria in the store....I think someone is hiding it!

  4. Thank you for visiting me today, Ladies!

    Melissa, that is the sweetest compliment I've had in ages. Guess my being careful comes from years of teaching students to credit their sources.


If comments disappear, please don't fret. A simple "hi" will do. The platform surely needs some maintenance.
