My Happy!

SMILE....TODAY IS A NEW DAY!

Just sharing a few things that make me happy!


 Awe yes...homemade biscuits from scratch rolled out by hand.


 My granny made every single pan of biscuits from scratch. I can remember her having a large tin can that she kept her flour in with her sifter tucked away neatly in a cabinet. I remember as a little girl standing in a chair to watch her make biscuits. I was always amazed at how she would knead and knead that dough and then she would roll the dough in between the two palms of her hands, place them on the iron skillet pan and make her knuckle prints in them. She would save just enough dough to make a little tiny biscuit and that ONE was mine.(of course she done this for all the grands but I thought she only done it just for me)


I never could quite master the art of my granny's biscuit making. My sister Mary could make her biscuits look and taste like granny's though. My favorite part of all is the Iron skillet pan! It belonged to my granny's mama, my great-grandmother. We called her "Other Nanny". Her name was Dollie Lee and she passed away when I was only 9 years old but I have some fond memories of her.  AND....my biscuits has never been as good as my granny's but there is never any left on the pan!!!!


Awe...this made me real happy last week!


A friend of mine makes all different kinds of signs and other things so I ordered this one from her and I love it! Perfect for my remodeled living room.




If you are on FB she is listed under Repurposed and Rustic.

I've already got my eye on another sign that I want too!

The Starfish cake...(aka) My Caramel Cream Cake.  I made the 3 layered cake and my niece Stephanie made the edible starfish for me.  Post coming soon with recipe and tutorial. YOU AIN'T HAD GOOD TIL YOU TRY THIS! 




This bouquet of flowers has really made me happy.

My Fatherinlove sent these to me over two weeks ago for my birthday and would you believe I have just now thrown them out! They have simply been beautiful!


I don't know when I have had something that meant more to me than this.


My Happy right now is making a wreath for my laundry room. I am about to do a total makeover in that room and got the cutest idea from a sister blogger! Pictures to come....

I hope that you have a "Happy" day. 

Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  5. I loved hearing about your granny and her biscuits. Brought back memories of me with my grandma in the kitchen when I was little. :) And, I have to tell you...that iron skillet griddle pan...I have just like it! We found it at one of the auctions we attended last summer. I love it because there are no sides to it and it is light weight even though it is cast iron. I enjoyed all of your "happys" today, my friend.

I'd love to know how you make them! Your sign is just perfect, and that cake....can't wait for the recipe, but I sure would love to sit down with a nice slice in front of me! :)
