love this cake...

I love this ruffle cake - I would attempt this - but sometime I get a little impatient with projects like this - or maybe I just bit off more than I can chew.  Probably true since I have little to none cake decorating experience.

Oh but this would be a lovely birthday cake...

Maybe one day I will try it..they even make video tutorial..

Five Little Links

Today I am:

Enjoying this song

Wanting these for me and the mister

Excited about going here for Valentine's Day.

Can't wait to watch these  - a Christmas gift from the mister

Thinking this is pretty cool.

diamond doorknobs...

As I child, I thought I had zero financial worries in my future. After all our house  my grandmother's house had diamond door knobs.
Glass Door Knob from GlassnMore

My family seemed disinterested in this obvious fortune and easily agreed that I would inherit all the doorknobs. That house was sold many years ago along with the knobs. Sometimes I wonder how my life would be different if I only had those old glass knobs today.

joys of jello..

Yum - Jello... Doesn't everyone love jello? I love it and I love that my mother used to make it for me in pretty little dishes - that I thought were especially made for Jello.  I later found out theses pretty little dishes were old big top peanut butter glasses.

I have this little jewel in my etsy shop -    The New Joys of Jello.  It is jammed packed with great photos from the 1970s with Jello at the center of all of them.  I just love checking out photos from the 1970s.  So much fun.
