Beside the flowers is a photograph I won in a giveaway by the talented photographer Georgianna Lane. Imagine being told to choose any photo from Georgianna's website and if your name was drawn - it would be yours! I love the soft pastel colours of the nest amongst the blossoms and purchased a wooden frame to complement the brown tones. It has added a touch of spring to our front hallway.
Thank you Georgianna, I have a few of her photos framed and love them all.
I got busy one afternoon in the kitchen and baked a double layer 6 inch carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. I intended to make a light blue spring coloured frosting but surprised myself with this aqua colour.
I know most of us have a sweet tooth and before Easter I stock up on jelly beans for the candy jar.
Well then, I decided I might as well pull out an aqua teacup to match for afternoon tea so I used this pretty one with violets by Rosina. There's no oil in my carrot cake, I use a snack pack size applesauce instead which makes it moist.
