spring favorites...lindsay's black raspberry ice tea. the real raspberry gives the black tea the perfect amount of sweetness. they only sell it in bulk, but i love having it for backyard parties and bbq's all summer long.

rhubarb dream cake. my mother in law gave me this recipe a few years back and now i cant wait to make it every spring when rhubarb comes into season. tastes best with a little custard on the side.

fresh lilacs are one of my favorite spring smells. i got these new vintage medicine bottles from the thrift store this week and plan to use them to keep more fresh flowers around the house.

playing with little mancha in the sun. she has been keeping me so busy this week, but i plan to get back to some regular blogging next week. hope you all have a great weekend! i am pretty excited to go to the first flea market in elk horn on sunday and hopefully photograph some new necklaces i made for summer. just a heads up that the next jewelry update is going to be monday, may 24th at 8pm (cst).
