{puff pastry with strawberries & cream}

On Mother's Day my mom & I went to the flea market and along with a couple other small things, I found this pretty 3-tiered cake stand. For 2€ (about $2.50)! Quite the deal if you ask me! ;)

Of course we had to put this cute cake stand right to "work" and filled it with some oh-so-delicious powdered sugar coated puff pastry crescents and fresh strawberries. We topped this with some freshly whipped cream and enjoyed the ensemble with a Café Latte. Yum!

We took Mother's Day as an excuse to indulge in such an excess of sweetness. *cough* And strawberries are healthy, right!?

    Very pretty little stand – I like the bowl-type plate in the top – just right for your strawberries!
    Yummy recipe too. Mmmm… Might try it – so easy! Thank you!

    BTW, I love how you have arranged your shelves, with different things in each pigeon-hole, but all white-themed. It looks very effective. That whole photo is so attractive and pretty.

    I miss my mom so much I am very happy that you share your time with her, with me. Love your blog and your craftiness. My grandmother and mom got me started when I was 8 years old working with my mind and hands. Happily at 52 I still am. What an incredible experience you can leave your children to enjoy.
