Strawberry Shortcake/Vintage Style




Thanks Sue, from The Cotton Patch , for the great idea for a quick dessert. I too had a Sunday School Class party tonight and wanted to make a cute dessert. I found this wonderful depression glass basket at a yard sale about 3 years ago. I paid $20 for it and it has no flaws. I simply took Sue's advice but layered the angel food cake,strawberries and whipped topping in this depression glass basket.The ladies in my class loved it.

Tricia - Just making my PS rounds! I love your pink appliances! How fun. This dessert looks luscious but sorry I can't have any since I started Adkins on Pink Saturday. LOL. I think I may take it to my church salad supper on Thursday. Yum. Nancy

Tricia,
Your depression glass basket is absolutely beautiful and this dessert looked beautiful in it! I'm so glad you were able to make it. It is an easy standby for me when I have to do something quick. I enjoy your blogs so much. Isn't it addictive?

Tricia,
What a nice way to show off the shortcake!! Pretty pretty.
You were telling me about a bottle tree when you stoped at my site. That reminded me of a bottle tree we used to pass when I lived at home. It was filled with bottles of all sorts. REALLY looked pretty all year.
