Life IS Beautiful in White

I made some more jelly jar candleholders yesterday
and I also made a couple mini ones.
I love how they turned out.

My sisters version of a coconut cake that she found in Life Beautiful magazine. She made it for Easter. She used the recipe in the magazine and her hubby told her it was the best cake he had ever had. YUMM!! Didn't she do a beautiful job??

Please join Kathleen at Faded Charm for more
White Wednesday posts.
Please note:
I am having some trouble with blogger today
when trying to post your comments.
It will go to "error" when I try to post them
or they will just totally disappear.
I am also having trouble leaving comments for
some of you. When I go to post it I also get
the error message. I will try again later. I hope it starts working right soon!

I am back with my glass of milk, I will take my cake now.. lol... That cake made me have a special moment.. My grandmother made the very best Coconut cakes... I think your jelly jar candles are the prettiest little candles i have seen. I am such a fan of lace, and that is stunning. Sheila

Beautiful White photos today Sandi! (as always!)
Blogger has been giving me fits for weeks now! I'm wondering if there is something new that I haven't caught up with?
The last couple of days, I have had problems with comments also!
What's up with Blogger anyway?
Hope your *problems* are small today!

Ooh Sandy,
Thank you for letting us know about this magazine. I haven't heard of it before and already clicked your link to take a quick look. Your lace jars are gorgeous, I too love the way they turned out! One of my favorite things in the world is coconut and the cakes looks dreamy good & delicious. Hope this comment "takes", had the same problem w/Blogger last week. Happy week!

Such pretty jelly jars. That coconut cake looks great! Leaving blog comments has been a problem for a few weeks now, but I think I've just about got around losing all the comments I post. Seems everyone is having similar problems and can be quite aggravating. Hope you are having a wonderful day. :) Tammy
