Lemonade party cake

This was a lemonade party cake that I served the ladies from Corydon. It is sitting on a table runner that I made out of orphan double wedding ring blocks. I think I have a few more of those orphan blocks if anyone is interested, let me know.
I just love having company and these gals are such a fun group. One of the ladies told her grandson that she was going to a slumber party for Grandma's!!! They did have lots of fun, but didn't stay up all night!

This evening we had roast with potatoes and carrots cooked in it, hot rolls, chop-chop salad, deviled eggs, relish tray and lemonade party cake for dessert. Why can't I remember to take pictures when the table is more clean, well any way they thought the food was great.
P.S. I can cook lighter meals or whatever to suit your needs. Or you are welcome to do your own cooking too! (More details on my website)

Corydon ladies are back again!

The Corydon ladies are here right now...started this yesterday and they just left this morning. They all seemed to have a great time and thought the food was just great, but too much! I'm from the old school and think I have to spoil them!
The picture above is Jeri with her find at a sale...she got all the stars at some sale for either 50 cents or $5...either way it was a steal!

This picture is of the group of 7 ladies from the Corydon, Iowa area. This makes the 3rd time for 3 of the ladies, so I think they like the Farmer's Dotter! It has been great fun to serve them! Thanks to all of you and I'll try to post more pictures later. Please leave a comment and let the rest of the world know what a fun time you had!

Notice the quilt blocks in the background...they put the design walls to good use!

Happy Spring!

Happy Spring to all of you! I just love this flower garden was gifted to me through one of my beauty shop customers. What a wonderful gift! Mary (daughter of Nina Poore) was cleaning out and thought I could put this quilt to good use after seeing what I do with old quilts. I have quilts ALL over the house and just love any old quilts. This quilt is a little tattered around the edges, but it is so neat because whoever made it fussy cut a lot of the blocks. SWEET!! Thanks Mary for the wonderful gift!
The bottom picture is a collection of spring decorations that I've picked up over the years...mostly garage sales and auctions.
Happy spring to all of you...I hope you can come visit me sometime! I'm going to be on the All Iowa Quilt Shop Hop if any of you want to stop by then...the 1st 2 weeks in June. I'll tell ya more later. I will run a special to stay the night if you want!

Bluebirds are back!!!

The bluebirds are back and so are we! Sorry I've not been keeping up on my blog....we went south to Florida for a couple weeks in January and came home for 5 days and went to the Phoenix area and etc. until the end of February. It was great to be in the warmth, even though this winter has not been too bad here in Iowa. But I am so happy spring is the same as here!!! I have a group of ladies coming from the Corydon area, so I've already put out my spring decorations. I'll show a better picture of the above quilt and story later. Please leave commments...I'd love to hear from you!
