popovers!

Yesterday, I spent the afternoon thrifting and found a popover pan.
So, of course, I had to try it out this morning.  I've never made popovers, 
but let me tell you, they are so easy to make and super yummy!
I had fresh blueberries with mine.  
I'm thinking we'll be having these often;)

carrot cake

Who doesn't love a moist carrot cake?  
This is one dessert that my entire family likes, so it is a joy to make.
I made it in a loaf pan this time.  
Delicious!  
What are you baking lately?

bar cart


 I have been looking for a bar cart for my living room for quite a while, 
and I finally found one a few months ago! 
Woo hoo!
Remember in high school when the teacher wheeled in the old slide projector on that squeaky cart?
Yup, here's the cart, complete with gum stuck under it:)
I think it looks a little more festive now that it is dressed up and ready to party!
I love that it's turquoise.  It's so cheerful with the lavender walls.

Many of these items were thrifted or gifted.

Sweetest little juice glasses:)

Milk glass and lemons.

Right now, I'm using the bar cart for storage for some of my larger milk glass pieces 
and some of my pyrex pieces, and one of my favorite drinks, Orangina.

Thrifted these Mikasa Ben Seibel plates:)


So happy with the way it turned out.
It's always fun to create an area with inexpensive items in my home. 
Definitely one of my favorite things to do!
Do you see the little closet to the right of the bar cart?
If you follow me on Instagram, you may recall a while back
I posted a pic of some purple paint and an inspiration board…
I used it to paint the inside of the closet for my milk glass storage, made a curtain out of the 
purple ticking fabric, a burlap table runner, and accented with natural elements like the moss and stones.
I love how it all looks together!
Behind the ticking fabric is storage for trays and baking sheets.
I even hung little lights in the closet so it would look extra special at night.
I really had fun repurposing that old cart!
It now has a new vibrant life:)

iced coffee

Had a little snow and ice the last few weeks.
At least there was coffee:)
