This post will mostly be all about the pictures! My mailbox has been overflowing with goodness from the talented hands of fellow bloggers and friends! Some was purchased, some was swapped. All of it is WONDERFUL!!!
First of all...if you have never had the privilege of purchasing the fabulous cake art available over at Everyday is a Holiday ...then you are missing out!!! Jenny and Aaron are so talented, and so sweet! Check out the cool wrapping..complete with bakery string...
My good friend (another Jenni who lives on Vashon Island in Washington and is an awesome cake baker) will be the lucky recipient of this gorgeous personalized piece. She will love it!!! I am so tempted to keep it for myself.. but I do spell my name with a "y"! This cake looks so real... you can practically take it off the plate! Incredible!!!! You MUST check out all the goodness in their Ebay shop. Your jaw will drop! Your mouth will water! You will want to get one of everything they make!!!
Next I had the pleasure of purchasing the lovely jug and bowl set below from Clare at her newly opened Vintage Home webshop. It traveled safely here all the way from her home in England (and so quickly too!) . It's so pretty resting on the window sill of my shabby chic inspired bedroom. I'll take some pics of that soon!
After seeing the sweet creations onLittle Lovelies blog, I had to have this awesomely cute brooch from her Etsy shop. Just looking at this piece makes me smile..
And another gorgeous brooch, from the hands of the talentedArtsy Mama . I was lucky enough to acquire this hand crafted beauty in a swap. So pretty!!!!
Speaking of talented hands... can you believe how gorgeous these watercolor print cards fromBeachy's Cape Card Cupboard's Esty shop are! My favorite flowers... Violets and Roses, rendered so beautifully.
I am amazed, and am so blessed to be in the company of such talented women. You all really inspire me!
You have all been so sweet to leave so many encouraging comments about the mini dolls posted last week. You may be wondering what ever happened to them... pics are coming soon! In a meanwhile.. here's a hint....stay tuned!!!
