Show and Tell Monday!

I love this idea my friend Kathleen from Set to a Tea has come up with. She thought we could all post about what we have been working on over the last week.

Here is a custom floral piece I have made up for a customer last week. This one is going in her bathroom.

These are some sweet little floral pieces I made and added to my shop last week.

Also, here is a pic of a delicious dessert my 12 yr old made last night. While in the supermarket yesterday, she spotted these ready to use crepes in the produce aisle.

Here is the recipe:

2 cups heavy cream

1/2 cup granulated sugar

2 tsp pure vanilla extract

1 pint of fresh strawberries, sliced

Nutella (chocolate hazelnut spread in a jar)

In an electric mixer, whip the cream to medium peaks. Add the sugar and the vanilla and whip to stiff peaks. Gently fold in the strawberries. Spread a little Nutella on the crepe. Top with some whipped cream and strawberries. Roll up crepe, sprinkle with powdered sugar and add a little more whipped cream on top. So good!

The floral arrangement is beautiful. I have French doors out to the patio, and never even thought to hang flowers there. Oooh, now I have a new project.
