admiring: speckled egg cake

There’s something so absolutely gorgeous and simple about this cake that I love.  The cake was featured on the always lovely The Cake Blog, but it was referenced again today on Oh Happy Day along with some other fun early spring party ideas.

As I’ve been unpacking things and putting them on the new shelves, I’ve also been culling through those boxes and purging, purging, purging.  There’s something about spring that makes me want to do that.  It’s also making me want to do the same in our basement.  I’d like to get to the point where I’ve gone through everything in the house and decided to either keep it and enjoy it, or send it on to its next life.  If I could get to a point where the only things we had in storage were Christmas decorations, camping gear and luggage, I’d be a happy camper. 

What ever does this have to do with cake?  Well, I think I’d gladly make an exception in the less is more category for cake stands.  I’ve been interspersing the ones that I have among the books and I wouldn’t be averse to a few more for the collection.  Everything looks beautiful on top of a stand.  Especially this cake.

friday finds: (pillows) with friends

Any Words With Friends players in the bunch?  We have one in our house, and his name happens to start with an M.  Actually, we all have a last name that starts with an ‘M’ – so it was hard to resist the Fab credits I had burning a hole in my pocket when I saw this Scrabble tile pillow there.  I’m not sure where it will end up, but for now I have it on the bed which makes me wish that I had gotten a ‘K’ as well – especially since the letter ‘K’ is worth 5 points, so win for me!

I hope this Friday finds you well.  We have some sunshine out there, and that usually makes most things better.  If you’ve got any interesting finds, do share.  Or give me your best Words With Friends word or score.  A friend of mine recently got a 125+ point word.
