Bathtowel Wedding Cake


Here's a picture of the bathtowel wedding cake I made for my future daughter-in-law's bridal shower yesterday. I used the towels she registered for, some silk calla lillies (she's including some real ones in her bouquet), white seashells, topped by a pair of bride and groom rubber duckies. I saw them in a gift shop and just had to make one for the shower!

Take me Back


Our family enjoyed a lovely week at the Jersey shore last week. I popped out of bed at dawn (or earlier) every morning so I wouldn't miss a second of the day. This week it's back to the rain, black spotted plants and my out-of-control garden. I wish I had time to pull more weeds but now I'm getting the house ready for my future daughter-in-law's bridal shower. I'm making goodies and decorations and trying not to panic. Everything's in the wrong order - the vacation should have been scheduled for the week after the shower. Poor planning...
