A Good Bargain ~ and A Quick Fix!

'Morning everyone~ Did you all enjoy the Toile Party the other day? I know I did! I visited all 98 participants. There are some lovely toiles out there and lots of scope for imagination.

Last Saturday afternoon, I went browsing in one of my favourite stores and I found this apothecary jar. I was so excited to find it at such a good price! It was regularly $24 and I got it for $8. It will be fun using it in an Easter vignette.

I also found this cute birdhouse....You know how much I love birdhouses! I just couldn't leave the store without it! It looks wonderful in my green toile bathroom.What do you do when you need a sweet fix and there is no candy in the house? I went rummaging through the pantry for something quick to make. There was a white cake mix and a tub of chocolate frosting in there so I set about baking a cake. Well, the cake turned out an odd shape {perhaps my eggs were too large??} and even the frosting wouldn't have hidden it. So, I decided to cut the cake up and use it for a strawberry shortcake. Voila! Strawberries and real whipped cream. Mmmmm! It was better than a frosted cake!
Well, I hope you all have a wonderful 'Berries n' Cream day!
I leave you with this scripture verse ".... Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus." 1 Thessalonians 5:18

What a wonderful idea to do with cake! I'll have to remember that next time I make some dessert for the kiddos. :) I always like reading your post.

Hi there, Thanks for visiting my blog, I hope you'll come back soon.

Great find....the apothecary jar and the cake looks good even if it didn't turn out as expected.

Thank you for sharing that scripture.
