Old Fashioned Strawberry Cake

Oh goodness, I have been walking down memory lane, will you walk with me?

Let's celebrate this Fourth of July like we used to, homemade ice cream, sparklers,

maybe even a cap gun and oh anxiously anticipating the Fireworks in Town after the sun sets.

Lets have just one slice of  strawberry cake before we venture out...

the kind just like Mom used to make.

Oh remember these cakes, the ones that tasted just as sweet as a sugar cookie and if you were lucky

you could eat the batter straight from the striped mixing bowl, as soon as the cake pans were filled.

And oh the fluffy, swirly frosting made with butter and powdered sugar and just maybe if we

were lucky we got to lick the spoon, or maybe stick a finger in the bowl when Mom wasn't looking.

One of the very best things about this recipe is the no nonsense list of ingredients, and just so

you will know-My oldest daughter told me "Mom, this tastes just like a cake Grandma would make."

Grab a patriotic candle or two just for good measure, and if the cake isn't picture perfect,

no worries, the flavor is.

I am chilling with a couple of the granddaughters a few days this week while their parents are

vacationing, I'll be stopping by to visit you all very, very soon!

Garden Party

Red Tips are in full bloom~

Songbirds share their merry tunes-it's an ideal setting for a garden party!

Make your outdoor blooming vistas the backdrop for your celebrations.

Mother's Day, Graduations, Showers or Birthdays.

Dress up the table using vintage fabric or a white tablecloth makes the day feel even more special.

Bring out the favorites, stemware, plates, dishes and utensils.

( my very favorite stemware hand painted by my daughter.)

Most of the decorating is already in place, thanks to Mother Nature.

Bouquets of your very favorite Spring flowers arranged in creative containers or vases.

Daisies and miniature carnations make this posey,

but just imagine Peonies, Lenten roses and Lilacs...oh..the fragrance...

Chippy plant stands in assorted shapes and colors.

Short on Chair covers use tablecloths secured with tulle.

A Simply Splendid Day.
