Crochet Cupcake Block

Today I'm sharing a chart to crochet a cute cupcake block. The finished size is about 9 1/2 x 8 inches. These make great quilt blocks or potholders, if you aren't that ambitious. :o)

Irish Soda Bread Recipe

Last year, I decided to take on making traditional Irish soda bread. You can read it about it here on my baking blog. But this year I caved and chose a recipe closer to what most think of when they hear Irish soda bread. Good news is it turned out pretty tasty and I have a recipe to share with you!

Sunday Through Instagram

Dave and I went to a new antique store this weekend. It turned out to be a good one. I never buy much, plus Dave and I have different styles we're searching for, but I like to think I take some fun looking photos. Enjoy!

A whole wall of hurricane lanterns. Just in case.

Lots of hurricane lamps
