#27

Today's post is a chance to kill two birds with one stone, not literally of course. I'm taking the opportunity to update the Renegade prep process as well as highlight another Great Aunt Irma treasure.


I'm going to state the obvious. This is a cake stand that would make Martha Stewart proud. It probably dates back to the fifties. I'm sure Martha would know all the relevant information. I, unfortunately don't. But I think its beautiful and I have used at numerous celebrations and dinners. This plate stand makes the crappiest cake look like it came out of the Cordon Bleu.


But wait. There's more. It comes in incredibly handy when you're taking pictures of stuff like these coasters. And, as an added bonus, I didn't have to wash it afterwards.

Beautiful cake stand. At first I thought that the piping detail was actually frosting. What a great treasure. Cute coasters too, I think I have fabric envy.

That is beautiful.

I have a cake stand from my great-grandmother that I'm always so excited to use. It's pink though, so not quite as all-purpose as yours must be.

And the coasters--so bright and lovely!

I love the cake stand, but your coaster design is brilliant. I wish I could make it to Brooklyn for the Renegade show, but I'm working. I'm inviting you to visit our quilt shop in Ridgefield CT if you can get up there during your stay in the area.
