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
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

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!
