Hi Everyone ,

Is this not the best looking cake ? I'm going to try making one I have a new recipe.

This picture of a cake I took at the cake boss's

bakery in NJ.

I have been trying to clean out our garage. I had my painting classes and a small shop in it.I had classes there for 20 years.

After I quit teaching I put my framing and glass things in there. Joe had his working area, and his reading room-TV area. I will keep my glass and kiln out there. Now we want to move everything out or in the new shed. We have allot to move. And clean up what was in the old shed we had. Also painting some old doors for one my sun room and one as Joe says the man cave. One will be white, one black. I'm not in the mood so it is taking me allot longer then it should. It will be nice to have a car in it.

I would like to do some painting, Found some things I like to get done for the new porch on the shed.

Yesterday we cleaned our back yard,have not done much in the yard this summer

We cut branches and vines I had a old push lawn mower it was under the vines.I forgot it was there .The yard is a mess with so much rain the flood building the new shed. This summer has gone so fast. I need to plant some flower this fall. It is almost time for decorating for fall.

I'm doing the France swap. Doing some shabby chic with a Paris flare.I have allot of things that I can use. It will be fun. Will post after the partner Lynn gets it.

Does any one know about other swaps . I have not been in one for awhile I have been in the Santa sack nothing new. Love the swaps.
