Hello and welcome to Pink Saturday hosted by Beverly of How Sweet the Sound. Thank you Beverly for hosting this fun event!
Today I have my foyer all done up for Christmas in Pink. Still have that old staircase that is half finished, on hold for some major repairs on this old house.
Feel free to click on the pic to get a larger view.
Below is my old green chair from Ohio Amish Country that seems to go with just about anything I put with it.
Below is a Betsy Clark candle that I had purchased a pair of for my mother back in 1974, I could not part with them when I cleaned out her belongings. I think of her every year when I pull them out. Today is her birthday, she would be 86 if she were still alive. She passed away in 1984, still miss her so!!!!!
Beverly asked us to post a favorite recipe, this is an old recipe from a New England bakery. The gal that gave me the recipe said that her family had to make this many times to get the recipe down to 2 cakes instead of the batch of 10 that her Grandmother's Bakery made it in.
It's the most delicious cake, I'm sure you will love it. It's our family favorite.

Last week I told you that I went to a new shop in town called the Primitive Pumkin and picked up some really cute new country items. I promised you some pics of my new treasures.
