I've never tasted one of these little beauties but I'm sure they're heaven. I guess I've heard of them, but no one around here makes them, and I know I've never actually seen any like these in person! They sound a little challenging to make, so for now I'm on a quest to find them here in Phoenix.

They are so much fun to just look at, aren't they?

these are from bake it pretty. *LOVE* that blue filling color with the pink cookie!!!

These are from Tartlette. Aren't they just so spring-y?

These ones are grapefruit, sounds yummy!! I also love that polka dot napkin! It's all by black apple.

Here's a big tree of them in Paris! image via flickr

marie antoinette

The colors of this book really remind me of Marie Antoinette. Each page is SO girly! I tried something new by putting a big flower on the cover. The covers are my LEAST favorite part of a book to do. For some reason I always feel totally stumped when it comes to the title and what the cover should look like...that's why they always turn out so similar I guess (the covers, not the insides)! So this one has a layered flower on the cover and a title on the first inside page. Different, and I like it :)

this one's for your grandma...

This book is inspired by my Grandma's house, which is a jumble of fabrics, textures, knick knacks, trinkets, stuffed animals (like deer heads AND teddy bears) and anything else you can dream up.

etsy LUV!!!

I've been on a little etsy buying spree lately...wanna see?

This adorable elephant button is from UK seller zozo cards. I like the idea of buying something that has to cross an ocean to get to me, even if it's just a little button!

Eiffel Tower charms from twisted string.

My most favorite thing ever is this layered deer thing from a scrappy design! The second I saw this I was going 'click, add to cart'. I am so excited to get this, frame it and put it in my scrap room! The colors, the little deer, the scalloped's like it was made for me :) She has a ton of cute stuff in her shop and her prices are totally affordable.

Hope you've had some fun etsy purchases lately too!!

i couldn't resist

Who could pass up this heart shaped donut? Not I! I don't know if they had these for Valentine's day but they would have been perfect. I am a sucker for a donut and a sucker for anything heart shaped, so this makes me very happy!

When you have a 2 year old little boy in the house, this is what happens. Stuff gets stuck where it fits, regardless of if it belongs there or not!
