Happy Fourth of July

For the Fourth of July I made a dessert. Seen it enough times in a magazine, and thought it would be fun to have. It was super easy and pretty yummy! I just took pound cake and crumbled it all along the bottom of the pan. Took some strawberries and cut them up and put some sugar on them and let them chill out in the fridge for a bit. Then after about an hour, I threw the sugared strawberries on top of the crumbled pound cake. I covered it with about a tub and a half of cool whip and then I had my fun with my stars (blue berries...fifty of course) and stripes (more strawberries). Much fun to make and it was a big hit at the party we went to. Last night the husband and I went to First Thursday in Little Rock. So much fun! I did manage to get a few fun buys. Some awesome fabric to cover a chair that needed a bit of updating. And this awesome "Splendid Design" pillow:
It looks so dang good on my couch! It had been sitting in Jerusalem and Jeanetta's shop for over a month and has been calling my name for some time. Hope you all have a wonderful fourth! ♥
