My day is full of color...

This is my friend Jessie...we were best friends in high school forever ago and (sadly) only recently have managed to get back into each others lives...she has a shop on Etsy, too and yesterday she came into town to visit...I put her to work painting my dining room. :)
Doesn't that look fresh and clean?
See my wall of memories in the corner there...simple clip frames that I add to now and then.
I just love it. Such a change.
Makes the white kitchen whiter and the blue living room bluer.
Do you know this trick? Do you see how in these photos it looks like there is a bit of crown molding around the top? Just an illusion...using painters tape, start taping off at the top of the wall and not on the ceiling. Tricks the eye and looks great, too.
For some reason Jessie insisted on buying me trims...after painting for me and buying me dinner and driving an hour to see me....I tried to stop her.
She left a bit ago and I found some goodies in my mailbox...treats for me and Moses from Janesays.
Sweet little posey tags...
And little birdy extras. :) Thanks friend...Moses is sure to love the monkey sponge...he loves to clean!
A sweet sign for the shop...
And another. Need to claim it? You know where to find me. :)
My fab sister in law sent me this recipe:

SUPER yummy---banana-chocolate chippers
oven 350
3/4 c. butter or margarine, softened
2/3 c. sugar
2/3 c. brown sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg
2-3 over ripe or just ripe bananas (mine were super over ripe)
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 c. all purpose-flour
as many chocolate chips as you like--i added a bag
Pre-heat oven to 350
Grease a 15x10x1 (a cookie sheet) baking pan, (set aside)
Beat the butter/margarine alone with a high-speed mixer for 30 seconds, add sugars, baking powder, salt
add in eggs, banana, vanilla
add in flour, then chocolate
(you can also add chopped walnuts but i skipped them)
spread even in pan, bake for 22-24 minutes until golden brown
cool completely then cut into bars
they are a spongy cake consistency with amazing flavor--ENJOY!

Hope you are having a GREAT weekend!! :)
