My Day

First, I made this cake for my cousin, I love the way it turned out. And it matched one of my new vintage tablecloths perfectly.

Here's a closeup of the top, I thought it looked cool.

Then, after I delivered the cake, I went to one of my favorite thrift stores and scored a ton of cool vintage ties. I have been looking and looking for cool ties to make a tie skirt for myself.
My husband is going to keep a couple to wear as intended though. Then, here is the most delish dinner, cottage cheese with vegies from my garden: Tiny orange tomatoes ( these are my favorite, they are like candy to me), cucumbers, bell pepper, and chives, and a bit of freshly ground salt and pepper. I was in heaven.
I even found some time to clean up my house a bit and get a couple sewing projects done. After I read my kids some books and get them to bed, I'm going to plug in a movie and do some more sewing for the Salt Lake Farmer's Market tomorrow!
Oh! Another great thing about today, my Husband took the day off to start the fence that I have been asking him to build for like a year! So, the almost 100 year old fence, (which is more like old chicken wire) is out, and we are now getting ready for the new fence. Yay!

That cake is lovely!!! And I love vintage ties too!! You got some cool ones! (Although I don't think I could get away with wearing a tie skirt. I'm sure you'll look adorable!)
