On the home front

While mom was here I baked, she sewed. I experimented with different recipes for BaseCamp Cafe. Fresh from the oven; apple, pear coffee cake- with oat streussel and cinnamon bun wreaths- with brioche dough, my campers gobbled them both up -instant winners.
 Mom made new slip covers for our old sofa...from baby quilts she sewed last time and new covers for the pillows with colorful leftover fabric. I love it when she comes and helps me with my kids and home...such a nice lift. At the end of the day we sat down with coffee and fresh baked goodies and figured what to add to the menu...our home is happy, colorful and delish!


  1. I am so jealous. What a great time you had with your mom and so creative too. I miss my mom even though she's been gone for 12 years. I'm so glad we spent time with one another when we were able. Such good memories.

  2. Yummie, they look delicious!
    Your mom made beautiful covers!
    In July, my mother will come for a few weeks to Hungary.
    Then she will learn us, how to spin wool ;)

  3. You are so lucky to have a mom that visits and sews! My mom has sewn a lot of things for us and I love having them about my home. The first photo looks extremely delicious...YUM!

  4. Food looks delish and the sewing projects are awesome, love the slip cover. Looks like you really enjoyed the time with your mom.

  5. the baked goods look delicious! and i need some things sewn around here, wish i could tempt your mom into a visit ;-)

  6. Those patterns and colors, love it. I need some of that here! And I can almost smell all that baked goodness, I'm sure the cafe will be a big hit!

  7. Little touches around the home can make such a difference. :)

  8. love the color! I need to do that around here!

  9. What a great collaboration! Everything looks delicious.

  10. Wow! Gone for a month and lookie...a whole new blog look (lovely!!), beautiful new home decor (your mom is awesome!!), and goodies from the oven...I just put on 10 lbs sniffing at the monitor!! Delish!!! I wish Basecamp was a few states closer to me!! :) :)


May the Warm Winds of Heaven
Blow softly upon your house.
May the Great Spirit
Bless all who enter there.
May your Mocassins
Make happy tracks
in many snows,
and may the Rainbow
Always touch your shoulder.
