Easter Tussy Mussy

I was reading one of my favorite blogs and inspiration hit. I had to make a tussy mussy. It is funny how something will hit you and you know exactly how you will make it. I wanted to make it out of wire and Victorian in style. I will be making more of these. I can take everything out and add a little glass bottle and add fresh flowers or silk. I just love it!

I made the eggs last year.

I hope you all have a very Happy Easter! My Birthday is tomorrow also, so I am off to bake a cake for myself. I don't really need that cake, but I am going to make it anyway. My Mom always made it for me and I am just so hungry for it I can taste it. I found her recipe. Coconut Cake. This coconut cake is a little different. The coconut and sugar are cooked together and it makes a syrup, You drizzle this over the cake and it sinks in making the most moist cake you have ever tasted. My DH does not like coconut, but he does like this cake. I will post the recipe on my next post.

Happy Birthday a day early ms. Kim!!! Yay!!! Birthdays can be such fun. It's your day and if you want coconut cake you go for it. I'll be right over.LOL It sounds yummy. I love your tussy mussie. I used to make them all the time when I sold dried flowers. I think they are so decorative. Those victorians new how to live! Yours is beautiful. Happy B'day. Sharon

Happy Birthday Sweet Kim. I love the Tussy Mussy. I'm still doing no sugar, no flour...otherwise I'm sure I would jet down and help you devour that cake. Take care, Susan
