Charming Crafts- Cake Stand Antiquing DIY

by Maggie Kelleher

I spent last week in Nashville, and what is there to do in a brand new city? Shop for things you can't find anywhere else. And in Nashville that means antiquing! At least that's what we decided, as everywhere we turned we found a new antique shop. I decided to turn our antiquing trip into an opportunity to do a craft I have always wanted to, and so today I am going to show you how to make a cake stand out of some old dishes.

Don't you just love those little daisies?

Lemon Poppy On The Road in Music City

by Maggie Kelleher

Today I am writing from Nashville!

For Spring Break this year some friends and I decided to take the few days we had off from school and work to drive a few hours down to Nashville and spend a few days in Music City! We have spent our first few days at the Opry, shopping, and at the Country Music Hall of Fame. And now that we've got the country music history out of the way, we are on to explore the sites and play some charades!

Why am I telling you this? Because we brought along some cake, of course! Lemon Poppy Coffee Cake! And we spent some time enjoying it along with some spring raspberries and quirky Nashville-esque decor and souvenirs.

Pineapple. The fruit of the tropical thinkers.

Who doesn't want to escape these cold winter piles of snow? And what better way to do it than with some tropical-tasting, sweet, delicious, and gorgeous pineapple flowers?
