Berries and Cream

Hello everyone.  It's been a very eventful and sad week.  The tragedies and losses have been far too many.  I can't help but think of the families that are grieving the sudden and unexpected death of their loved ones and the many people who were injured.  My heart grows with sadness. I can only ask that we all keep these families in our prayers.
Now, I would like to share something sweet and heart warming.  It is a very scrumptious dessert featuring fruits swimming in a silky-smooth cream.  This fresh and fragrant Berries and Cream combo mixes strawberries and raspberries with whipping cream and sweetened condensed milk.  It is a great summer dessert, weekend treat or simply just because.  Surprisingly, it is very airy and light.  I don't mean low calories girls.  It is ok to indulge from time to time don't you think....  
I hope you enjoy the recipe.  Thank you for your visit.


1 Cup heavy whipping cream
1/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
1/3 cup of powder sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup of chopped fresh strawberries
1/2 cup of fresh raspberries
7 crushed cookies (any plain cookie)
4 Whole strawberries for garnish
4 Whole raspberries for garnish
fresh mint for garnish
In a medium bowl, combine whipping cream, vanilla and sugar.  Using a mixer at high speed,  beat until medium peaks form; set aside.
With a pastry brush coat dessert glasses with a thin layer of sweetened condensed milk.  Now coat glass with a dusting of the crushed cookies; set aside. 
Lightly fold the sweetened condensed milk into the mixed cream. (Do not mix, just fold)
Fill half of the dessert glasses with cream.  Add a few of the chopped strawberries and raspberries. and top with a sprinkle of the crushed cookie for a bit of crunch.  Fill dessert glass with more cream until you reach the top of the glass.   Add more of the chopped strawberries, raspberries and crushed cookies to finish. 
Garnish with strawberry and mint. Serve immediately. 
Makes 4 Servings

9 Steps for Hosting The Ultimate Spring Birthday Tea Party

Hi friends - I've missed you all.  Things are rapidly changing for us all.  Many of us are working from home these days, stopped gathering with family and weekend outings are basically trips to the supermarket to restock.  It's the least that we can do to help stop the spreading of this horrific virus that is changing the world as we know it.  That being said, I am so glad that I got to spend time with family and friends two weeks ago when we all came together for the celebration of my Goddaughter Daniella's birthday.  We had a blast and the memories made are ones that will live in my heart forever.     My sincerest thank you to everyone that helped me put this beautiful event together.  Especially my cousin, Jennifer of Having Fun Craft s, for making all the gorgeous place cards and backdrops.  They were a beautiful addition to the overall decor.  A big thank you and hug to my niece Ericka for flying in from Florida to help me put it all together and to the amazi

Wood Box Rustic Floral Arrangement Tutorial

So what do you do with an old wooden bit box found at a flea market???  Well, the answer is very simple for those of us that love all things vintage and worn...  We display flowers of course.   And luckily, I scored big on my trip to my local grocery store yesterday. Our flower vendor had the most spectacular roses in stock.  I couldn't believe how gorgeous they were.  Two tone roses in the most delicate soft shades of pink and fuchsia.  I knew these roses were meant for me!!!  I grab two bunches and practically ran home to snap a few shots of them and arrange them to showcase their timeless beauty. So today, I am sharing a tutorial on how I made this rustic centerpiece...  The best part of this tutorial, is that there are no fancy materials needed.  The only items required are the flowers, a few glass tumblers, water and floral shears or scissors.  And in less than 10 minutes, you will have a spectacular centerpiece that will rival any one that you may purchase at a Floris

A Country Christmas Tablescape

Until this Christmas, I had no idea that I was going to be having a little obsession with vintage trucks. Specifically, red pickup trucks.  Me, the girl that loves to decorate with delicate flowers and romantic fabrics.  Hard to believe but it is true!!!  And decorating with vintage cars is seems to be having a moment..  They are everywhere!! So today, I am happy to share one of my most pinned and shared tablescapes.  It is my Country/Farm house themed Christmas table which showcases my latest find. You guess it!  A red pickup truck.  It was just too adorable to pass up.  I didn't know what use it would have in my decor when I first brought it home but it quickly became the inspiration for all of our Christmas decorating the last two holiday seasons. Such a fun piece to own with a great vintage vibe too.   My whimsical table begins with a distressed wood charger in antique white, topped with simple white plates and Pier 1 Imports Glad Tidings Porcelain Salad plates.  I al
