Issue 19 of Creating Vintage Charm + Recipe Victoria Sponge Cake

How is spring treating you? Has it shown up yet at your neck of the woods? The season has been teasing us here in NC. We had a few beautiful warm and sunny days until today. We're back to cloudy and rainy weather. But its the season right? April flowers bring May flowers.

To celebrate the season, Creating Vintage Charm's latest issue is filled with wonderful tutorials and beautiful images of all the wonders of the spring. 

Cover image is photographed by the very talented Neli Kireva, also gracing our pages with images from her vintage and romantic inspired home.

More features include: 

Krissie Karlson of Shingle Cottage also shares some goodies with us with a cheerful tea setting. 
Including pretty china, florals and yummy goodies. Here I thought to share a recipe for the classic English, Victoria Sponge Cake.

What's more!... my new thing lately is Instagram. had it for less then a month and I am HOOKED!!
Been snapping away and sharing beautiful things from my day to day. if you are on instagram, I hope you look me up and follow. 

Here are some random shots I have shared lately.

Spring has brought some flowers and blossoms in our neighborhood and I have been enjoying nice walks with the kids and they pick flowers on the way. Phlox grow in our yard and at the studio next door. Nothing like a child's handful of the pretty tiny flowers.

I decided to pull out my blue and white plates and for a pop of color in my dining room.

Cherry blossoms in my dining room. 

The sight of the light pink and dainty flowers alone just make my heart sing!

Well, I hope you enjoyed my post today and that you make the best of those sunny and warm days to go outside and enjoy nature at its best. + get your latest copy of Creating Vintage Charm...*wink*

With much love,
