Whoop! It’s our (belated) blog birthday!Posted: September 26, 2014
Our one year blog birthday just sort of sneaked by us last week while we were at The Vintage Bazaar. Late or not, we must have a cake! And a candle! And jadeite! And a “new” tablecloth!
We’re not getting fancy. This cake is posing on my kitchen table. I bought the tablecloth at The Vintage Bazaar from Nancy The Linens Lady. (Basically, I want to buy her entire booth.)
The 6″ cake is a fragrant Banana Pecan number with a thick dusting of powdered sugar. (Truth be told, I don’t really like icing. I scrape it off. So why put it on in the first place?) Recipe courtesy of Martha, here.
The cake stand was made by Mosser Glass. The plate is vintage Fire-King restaurant ware.
So how does it feel to be one? I think we’re at the toddler stage–we fall over, then get up and bobble along some more. The numbers in our stats aren’t exactly calling for champagne, but we always have a steady stream of loyal readers (Hi, Mom! Hi, Cynthia!) and we’re still having fun. So thanks for joining us, even if there wasn’t enough cake to go around!
