The new old chair and a cake....

She got a coat of primer and a coat of semi-gloss white, and
then a punch of color on her seat with laminated fabric, Summer Totem,
by Anna Maria Horner.
 Here's the back.  I love the curvyness of this chair.  
It cradles your back when you sit in it.
Love, love, love.

And now for another summer love...
Chocolate Zucchini Cake
2 c. sugar
3 eggs
Beat these two ingredients until fluffy.
Add dry ingredients:
2 1/2 c. flour
1/2 c. cocoa
1 t. salt
1 t. baking soda
1/2 t. baking powder

Next add wet ingredients:
3 t. vanilla
2 c. peeled, grated zucchini
1/2 c. buttermilk (or sour milk)
Mix batter until smooth-ish.
Bake at 350* for 30-40 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Mom's Topping:
After baking, sprinkle on chopped walnuts, semi-sweet chocolate chips,
and a little bit of sugar.
Put back into the oven for a minute or two.
Eat with a big scoop of ice cream.
Heaven will have this cake.
