last week in pictures

Nothing at the thrift store fit me last week so I came home empty handed. There were some pretty cute floral patterns, too bad!

I made a banana bread like cake to bring into work. I used my go to recipe which I posted here. This time I made it into a loaf and used all white flour. I don't know why I never thought to use crushed chocolate as a topper before but it looked gorgeous with my gold sprinkles.

I have been trying to display some of my baking pieces. I tend to keep them stored in a dresser until I want to use them. Here is one tiny vignette I came up with. My cabinet is as tall as me so putting a lot of items on there isn't the best plan.

I decided to have a bit of fun with my friend who has a new guy whom I have yet to see. Her final answer was no, my cake couldn't catch a break.

I actually don't like garage sales and maybe go to a handful a year. I have pretty good luck at the thrifts finding the items that didn't sell at the sales. I passed a sign saying "antiques" so I decided to see what was up. The lady had a nice assortment of items, mostly larger furniture but sadly they were priced at retail. The 50's table was $75 it was very small almost desk size and the smaller decor items were $25-40. It was a beautiful day out I still enjoyed my first stop of the year even though it was not the best sale to look for a deal.

How was last week for others? 


  1. Lovely post. Is’s Perfect! Happy weekend.


  2. Your cake is a work of art! Chocolate flakes + gold sprinkles is nothing short of dazzling. I'm sure it tasted amazing, too.
