Cupcake Love

I absolutely love cupcakes, in any shape or form (even non-edible!).  If you love them as much as I do, here are some pictures to enjoy! (all images from

I even love cupcakes that I can't eat. These are made out of felt!

This could be one of my mottos!

Have a beautiful Sunday!

Pink Saturday!

Hello and welcome!  I'm joining Beverly for Pink Saturday.

This cute little guy is my dog, Dakota.  He was painted by an extremely talented artist.  Fifi of Fifi Flowers held a contest and my dog was one of the winners.  His painting will show up on note cards, along with five other dogs.  So exciting...eek!  I put the pink frame around him so it would be appropriate for Pink Saturday.  Please go to Fifi's blog and check out all of her wonderful works of art!  Thanks, Fifi!

Happy weekend!

My Dog's A Winner!

Or at least one of the winners!  Hehe!

I entered him in a contest over on Fifi's blog, and he was voted into the top six.  He'll be painted on a set of notecards that we'll receive courtesy of Fifi!  Please go to her blog and check out the other adorable winners!

Dakota is proud and thrilled, as you can see!  Sadie is perhaps a wee bit jealous.

HomeGoods Shopping Spree

As I mentioned in my previous post, I won a HomeGoods gift card from sweet Pat at Mille Fiori Favoriti (courtesy of BlogHer).

I had the MOST FUN shopping for a few things for my home.  I almost never get to do this, so it was a real treat.

Here is what I got:

A ceramic two-tier serving tray

Pillows for my brown leather couch

Dessert plates to hang in my kitchen (I have several different kinds hanging along the kitchen soffit)

A cute canvas painting for my craft room (which is very feminine)

More canvas paintings for the craft room

And last, but not least, a fabulous smelling candle for the bathroom

A lot of this was on clearance.  If you have a HomeGoods nearby and haven't been there yet, I urge you to give it a try.  The merchandise changes frequently.

This was so much fun.  I hope you enjoyed seeing what I got.

Happy weekend!

Happy Pink Saturday!

I'm linking up with Beverly at How Sweet the Sound.  Please go over and have a browse around at all of the blogs who have linked up!

I got this adorable wall hanging at HomeGoods.  It's for my craft room which is very feminine, and this fits right in.  This was part of the loot I got with the HomeGoods gift card I won on Pat's website (courtesy of BlogHer).  I'll do a post tomorrow and show you everything else I got during my shopping spree!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Happy Pink Saturday!

I'm joining Beverly and lots of other special people over at How Sweet the Sound.  It's Pink Saturday, my favorite day of the week!

I'd like to share this card that I made.  It's for a very special friend who LOVES shoes.  I've never seen someone so crazy about shoes!  I think she'll love it.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Fantasy Pink Jewelry

Hello and happy pink Saturday!  I'm linking with How Sweet the Sound to bring you just a little more pink.  Who couldn't use more pink in their life?

This week was stressful at work, even though it was a short week.  I seriously need some escape, so I decided to look for pink jewelry that, although it's out of reach now, I can dream about for someday....

I don't represent any of these vendors, nor can I vouch for them.  Click on the titles above the pictures for the links.


Pink Pearls

Pink Sapphire

Pink Diamonds
Pink Tourmaline

Aren't they all gorgeous?  I want one of each!!!

Have a happy weekend!

Pink Saturday

Hello dear friends!  I am participating once again in Pink Saturday.  Please go and visit Beverly's blog and see what everyone has contributed.  It's an amazing collection of posts!

Today I'm sharing my vintage children's porcelain book ends.  They are from the early 60s, so although they weren't mine originally, I probably had something similar.  I think they're adorable.  I hope you enjoy them, too.

I'm sorry for the poor picture quality.  I do need to invest in a good camera someday!
