Cute idea.you crazy thing you.Well---yesterday,you see "compose"and I were having our usual tussel.And as usual it won.It refused to print my last 3 names.WOULD NOT DO IT.So would you come pick up your daily blogger award.It wouldn't print your name and for this I am so sorry.I guess I'll have to take Compose some cake,huh?///ann

onlymehere said...

No fair!! You show us this yummy food and don't share any recipes?! J/K, I really liked the post and the food looked scrumptious!

Glenda said...

Guess compose was just waiting for what came after the @. Sorry, Gloria, I didn't mean to spaz out Ann's program.

I'm sitting here trying to figure out if you are a brainiac working undercover. I've concluded that you must be, to be so clever in everything you do. Don't worry, I won't tell anyone.

Smilingsal said...

Gollum is a lucky gal to have that delicious looking coffee cake made just for her. (She should share a bite with me!)

Donna@designson47thstreet said...

You are so cleaver, Gloria! That was really sweet. I'm sure Gollum appreciates your efforts.

Thanks for your honesty on my blog today! LOL! That was cute.

As for cleaning silks, if they are quality ones you can immerse them in water with mild soap. Just swish them around a bit and be sure to dry them right away so they don't water spot. There is also a very good cleaner I recommend..they aren't all the same, so be careful. Hey, you are right, maybe I should blog about cleaning silks!
