I always think giveaways are such a great way to start off the week. I know some people dread Mondays, but I for one love that fresh start to a new week. A much better thought than the end to a weekend – all about perspective.

Well, today I have a fabulous giveaway to share from the very lovely Ashley Brooke Designs. I have long been a fan of her work so it’s about time for us to do a little collaboration! Her custom illustrations are just so killer and personal. And, today we have cooked up a little something fun for you – in the kitchen of course!

strawberry-refridgerator-cheese-cakeAs I see the packages of fresh strawberries line the shelves at the super market (whatever happened to those cute little baskets?)I can’t help but share this delight of a recipe as we get closer and closer to the spring season.

I love the term gelatin, it reminds me of those orangestrawberry-refridgerator-cheese-cake-2 boxes of Knox. And after much searching, I have finally determined that the “L of C” inscribed on some of the recipe cards in our families collection, stands for “Lady of Charm” who was something of a homemaker icon in Michigan.

So, as most people do love a good cheesecake, I hope you will enjoy this seasonally fresh little treat.

Truly a lost art, a forgotten everyday skill of the past, a statement that can define you as a unique person – beautiful handwriting.

There is nothing more lovely than the classic, swirling script of people past. Focused on heirlooms, I see it every day. From old census records, to love letters, to Nana’s recipe cards, to the Declaration of Independence. No matter the significance or importance of the writings purpose, everything was beautifully crafted and meticulously practiced to perfection to be delightful.

This one is an important one ladies & gentlemen, one that even me myself is committed to mastering. Bringing back the lost art of beautiful, signature handwriting – what better family tradition could you create?
