Lemon Pound Cake

This is my mother's recipe. It is a great lemon pound cake and is so moist . It is one of my favorites. Nothing better than having fresh eggs for a pound cake, yum.

Fresh eggs produced by one of our chicks.

A Plate Holder

I am linking up with Faded Charm's White Wednesday to share my plate holder, which made out of 2 old shutters. A fun way to display all your plates.
You can find these anywhere, I got this one at Canton for $3.00, they were all beat up and scratched. I spray painted them white and added a little corner piece.

Happy White Wednesday!

A Burlap Pillow

I love my new pillow, after looking at the burlap pillows in the stores and the price of them I decided I would make my own. I love the contrast of the rough burlap and the delicate pearls and lace.

This bench was made from an old bed I found at Goodwill for $15.00 for the head and foot board.

My new pillow. :-))

A New Burlap Runner and a Cute Spool

Another rooster at Our Cottage Nest.
Our friends went to Round Top and brought back a bunch of these cute spools, I love the rusty rooster on top.

I found the cutest table runner, pretty sunflowers.

I am loving burlap these days.

Happy White Wednesday!!!!

I will be linking up with Faded Charm's White Wednesday. Hope it is a great day for everyone. I love the white flowers in the old jars.

The bird cage in the background was a Canton find as well, I am addicted to old bird cages. I have candles sitting in it and use the bottom as a towel rack.
I found this at Canton, on my last visit, for $18.00, I thought it was a great deal. All the jars were in good condition. I plan on replacing the jars with the more greenish color jars. I just have to find them on my next trip to Canton.

Happy Monday

My tulips are blooming, next year I am planting more. They do not last long, but while they are blooming they are beautiful.

It makes me happy just to look at them.

Saturday at Our Cottage Nest

Our dog woke us up on Saturday morning, barking and barking at this........

outside our bedroom window
and this on our roof

Is that the cutest face you have ever seen? He eventually ran off the roof and jumped into a tree and off he went.

We Are So Excited!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We had a wonderful week-end. Stephanie and Tony came home and went to Canton with us. We got the most exciting news while we were there. We passed a booth with the cutest baby cloths in it, Steph took me over to it, I said I can wait until you have a baby and she just got this funny look on her face. I said are you pregnant?? That was it, you could hear me all over Canton. The lady in the booth was so sweet, I think she was excited as we were. Steve had it all figured out, he had put a message on his phone the we were going to be grandparents again yesterday. Men???
Today we went to lunch with our best friends and got to tell them. Kacy is expecting in October and has a precious little girl. We are always entertained by Kinsey. She is hoping for twins, a boy and a girl. I do hope she gets her wish.

We are so excited and can not wait .

Urijah will have a playmate.

White Tulips

I can't believe it is Wednesday and March already.
Where does the time go?
I am joining Faded Charm's White Wednesday.
You should have a look at all the beautiful whites.

I love tulips. I think the white ones look so pretty in my silver teapot.
