Matt and I spent a lovely Sunday afternoon getting to know the folks in our community. The West Adams Heritage Association (WAHA) hosted their annual ice cream social at the Britt Mansion. We toured the lovely estate, now home to LA84, were delighted by live vaudeville entertainment, ate all kinds of sweets and met some wonderful new people. Oh, and did I mention we ate sweets... lots of sweets!
Here we are, Matt is bringing in the lemon ricotta cake we made...
Beautiful Georgian Britt Mansion built in 1910

Some of the sweets... my cake was a hit!

Sipping sangria by the raffle prizes
Many people wore fabulous period dress!
I loved this pomegranate tree-
So full of pomegranates!
Matt's walks the walk- the cake walk, that is. He looks like he had fun, but he didn't walk away with any baked goodness-- the winner was an adorable 3 year old named Alexander!
