I Seem to be on a Bit of a Buying Spree

I thought these red wine glasses etched with flowers were gorgeous.

I ordered two sets of them.

Can't you just imagine these on a pink/red Valentine's table? If you can't, you can be sure I will show you one just as soon as these beauties arrive! :)

Last weekend I made a carrot cake that my blogging friend, Patti, from Osagebluffquilter was kind enough to post the recipe for. I thought it sounded interesting since it made a smaller cake (8-inch square pan) The recipe called for carrot baby food, but I didn't have any and didn't feel like cooking and mashing carrots, so I used pineapple instead. I put the remainder of the can of crushed pineapple on top of the cake.

The cake was very good and we enjoyed it for three days.

Thanks, Patti, for taking the time to post the recipe for me.
