LOVE AFFAIR WITH SUGAR CUBES



My love affair with heart shaped sugar cubes all started with a text message from a dear friend and co-worker on New Year's Day. I'm guessing she finally had some time to sit down and read her magazines that she truly enjoys. She has an eye for what we both love, and just about every  other day, she shares an idea with me. 

This is the text photo I received. I went on line and found the sugar cubes, but the shipping was more than the item so I dismissed the idea for a few days. Read on.....


Last evening, I received an email from Carol, a wonderful blogger friend that I have never met but feel like I have. She found instructions on Lalalove blog to make heart shaped sugars! Of course I had to make them, and will be sharing a jar of sugar hearts with the friend who first shared the idea with me ;o) And speaking of Carol, I am using her recipe for french toast casserole this morning! The recipe is here There's Always Thyme. Thanks Carol!


I am joining The Tablescaper for Seasonal Sunday and The Little Red House for Monday Mosaic, Cozy Home Scenes for the Cozy Home Party and Foodie Friday. It was 55 degrees so I changed my blog header and put a "think snow" snowman on it. We have a winter vacation booked for February in Lake Placid, and have winter activities planned. That is why I added the snowman ;o)  I'll remove it after our trip!

Thank you for stopping by!
