Sun room valance

Last week I painted the Sun room cabinet as you know
and hubby the stereo cabinet,white
Well then I got hooked with the white
and made this little ruffle for over the windows


I had bought a double bed white sheet for $3 from the charity shop
and chopped it up to make the ruffle.
I added some lace from my stash and I think it turned out lovely





The next thing is to replace the covers on the chairs and some fresh cushions


The couch needs a matching throw too,I haven't photographed the couch here
But it has a pink and blue quilt on it,not really what I want here





I also made my Granddaughters 16th birthday cake


I haven't really got very good at writing in icing yet,so left off the wording
I did try it on other cakes previously but didn't like the look
Jessica really liked it.



At the same time I got to baking some of our favourites to stock the freezer
That is if they get there :)

Tea Cake


Vegetable Bake
This recipe is in my book sbpra.com/jeanetteodonnell
But if you don't need the book and want the recipe 
Please email me and I'll give it to you.


My twist on ordinary coleslaw
I add sliced red onions to the finely chopped Chinese cabbage
and grated carrot, chopped celery,olives and dressing


Hope you enjoy your weekend

I am joining  some really nice linky parties
Please join me,the links are on my side bar

Very pretty sunroom, Jeanetteann. It looks like you have a beautiful garden to view from those terrific windows. I like the shade of blue on the walls with the white. The charming valance is a great use of your $3 bargain. Can't wait to see what you do with the sofa. Your culinary skills inspire me, as always. Happy birthday to your granddaughter. Lucky girl to have a grandmother like you. Have a great weekend.

Your sunroom is so pretty. I love the ruffle. I am glad I am not the only one who uses sheets for other purposes than what they were intended.

Hi Jeanetteann.......I like your room and I think the white ruffle is a perfect finishing tough.
The birthday cake you made and decorated is beautiful. Your other cooking is making me hungry.

Oh YUM! Your dishes look delicious. And you made such a lovely cake! Your valance looks wonderful in your room. Seems like there is always something more to do! But it looks like a nice space to spend time in. Love it when you stop by!
