I love Crepes!  Our parents used to make Crepes for us when we were kids and they always seemed like a really special treat - even though they are so easy to make!  Crepes with butter, cinnamon, and sugar were my favorite as a kid and still are! 

I would love to make a crepe cake like this one - so beautiful!

Or this Martha Stewart recipe for Meyer Lemon Crepe Cake.

Layers of crepes and lemon curd - yum!  Such a gorgeous dessert!

Super Cute Finds at Ikea.

Rach is going to IKEA tomorrow so, naturally, I checked out their website to see if there was anything new that I wanted her to pick up for me!  Sure enough, there are some cute, new striped and polka dot finds that are adorable!

Super cute theromoses for coffee and soup on the go!

These paper cups are brilliant - I love the Kelly Green and Navy Blue!

A striped duvet and pillow shams that would brighten up any bedroom!

Polka dot fabric!  I think I have to make something with the Kelly Green and white polka dot fabric!

These striped throws would make a great baby gift!

I would love to have a few of these piled up for extra seating!

This bird tray would look great with all of these colorful stripes and polka dots!  I love the whimsical birds and colors!

On another note - I am loving this yellow and white bed! 

Found on Cozy Little Cave.  What a transformation!

I'm thinking I would love to paint my bedroom this color - what do you think?  Do you have a favorite shade of blue?
