would you like a little more tea?


Mad Hatter: Would you like a little more tea?
Alice: Well, I haven’t had any yet, so I can’t very well take more.
March Hare: Ah, you mean you can’t very well take less.
Mad Hatter: Yes. You can always take more than nothing.

 gorgeous scrumptious do-it-yourself vintage cake stands!

i don’t even bake very often but i have a fascination with cake stands … at one stage i discovered i had about 5 or 6 squirrelled away in various cupboards and drawers. in a moment of sanity, i either sold at my garage sale or gave away most of them, and have only kept one vintage one in blue/white/gold china.

 (check out the beauties at this website in the UK – http://cakestandheaven.com/)

on our morning walk today my friend Sally said she had been to Reverse Garbage and bought some cake stand plates (missing the stand/stem which she was able to purchase on eBay.)

so i went googling, as you do, on the internet afterwards.  these exquisite examples have given me the irresistible urge to go trash and treasure hunting myself to find some old plates and glasses or candlesticks and make some dainty quirky little cake stands too.


… and maybe do some baking???
