{Show and Tell}



Aren't the colors just beautiful? I love flowers that have that pinkish coral color to them. 


Just a few closeups of my purple and pink Hydrangeas.


 We had a great Friday night and Saturday with these two grandbabies. Friday night they had their singing, piano and guitar recital and then on Saturday.....We kept them busy shucking corn, picking squash, peppers, working outside and inside...and well....I can assure you they slept good that night! They are such good help too! 

Look at his face....YEP...think he's just a tad dirty!




My rosemary is looking good and oh it smells so good. Do you see my new friend on the right hand side of the bucket?




 Remember this cute set of mini pans I bought at a yard sale last week?



Well the grandgirl decided to bake up some little cakes using them.


 We decided instead of doing a filling we would do a topping.




 These little mini cakes had my whole house smelling so good. 

Then we whipped up a sweet cream sauce to pour over the top.


 She got her candy out to start melting. 


 Then she used different candy molds and made a batch of YUMMY chocolate.


Now aren't these too cute to eat?
BUT WE DID!  



 Next she poured the sweet cream sauce over the top, added some cool whip and a piece of chocolate candy on top! 




 She then put it in the freezer to firm up and allow that sweet cream sauce to saturate through that mini cake and 5 minutes before serving she took it out! 

My girl is going to be on CAKE WARS before you know it! 


The grands stayed busy all day.
(Yeah I know....we can actually do things instead of sit in front of a television all day)


I didn't go thrifting but I did manage to get these cuties from Walmart for $1 each!
Each of my three girls got one...and of course one for ME! 


Found these also for $1 each at good old Walmart.


It was indeed a busy day at Nana's and Papa's house but a GOOD ONE! 

 And needless to say I was OVER DELIGHTED when my sweet blogging friend and sister in Christ sent me a package in the mail.




Love, love, love Gooseberry Patch. This cookbook has the best looking recipes and so, so simple!



And just look at these cute measuring spoons.


Debbie Kay is such a blessing to me and as Philippians 1:3 says; "I thank my God upon every remembrance of you" Debbie Kay!  

The Lord is so good. He gives us everything we need...including sweet friends.

Pop over and visit Debbie Kay. She is such a delight and sweet gal that you will quickly fall in love with.

Last show and tell for today.............



 Remember when I shared at the beginning of the New Year my WORD to focus on? The Lord has surely given me so much to reflect upon...I could write a book at the things He has been showing me. But one major thing has been to BE STILL...(and you have no clue how hard that is for me)

May you reflect upon all that God is doing for you in your life. Even when you may feel that He is so far away He is at work!

Joining Jemma today with "Thoughts of Home".

    1. Deb, not sure how it happens so quickly with these babies growing up. Seems like yesterday I was rocking my own children and now my oldest grand is too old to rock!

  10. Good Morning Cindy,
    You are doing exactly what God intended for Grandmother's to do and you do it with such love, patience and blessings from God. I leave your blog energized and motivated.
    This granddaughter of yours is a beauty and sweetheart and she really and truly is learning how to be a baker because of you! What a wonderful thing.

  19. Hydrangea love! They're my favorite flower, but unfortunately I have such a hard time growing them here. My sister-in-law was kind enough to let me cut a dozen from her bushes last week.
    The cakes and treats look delicious. Brings back great memories of baking with my Nana when I was a young girl.
