Ok, I hope you don't think I'm a loon but I saw your avatar on a comment on another blog (it was the recipe index roundup) and I clicked on it because I thought "she looks like a Christian". :) It's always nice to come across other sisters in the Lord and I just had to say HELLO!

These look delicious! And, strawberry season is in full bloom around here so the berries are at their cheapest and most flavorful right now. Plus, I've had scones on my kitchen bucket list - recipes to master! Thanks for linking up to Sweet Indulgences Sunday on A Well-Seasoned Life. Kim

Mmm, I love me some scones. My only trouble is shaping them correctly. I guess I need more practice ;) Maybe I'll practice on these very soon :)
