Happy Birthday, Mate!




That's for you, Linda of Lilly Cottage in Australia! A little-known fact about me is that I lived in Papua New Guinea for a couple years as an older child (right above Australia) and had several Australian friends there. And in Australia, a "mate" is a friend! So Happy Birthday, Mate! (I know...I'm a little punchy today...)

See Linda...that's you, feeling all better, and swinging on the gate in front of Lilly Cottage, waiting for the postman to bring my collage to you, as well as your Box of Crafty Goodness and a few stray pretties!



In other news, I got this in the mail yesterday. No, they didn't come in one package! It just so happened that the fabric I ordered and this vintage Cake book I found on eBay came the same day! And look how yummy and pretty they are together...






Behold the confectionary goodness in this book! Now if I could just find someone to actually BAKE these cakes for me....



































Oh and before I forget, this custom "Cabbage Roses" set ends tomorrow on eBay...

And last but not least, here is a little hint of something I've been working on...

Remember the sweet little (albeit a bit homely) sewing basket? Well let's just say she is no Plain Jane any longer! In fact, she is just about ready for her great "reveal" and is bringing along some charming "accessories." I am very excited about how it's all coming together. Try to control yourselves now...I WILL show it all to you in time! I have some exciting "Confections" news that goes along with it but it's all very hush-hush for awhile...

Hope today is full of fun and that little something extra that leaves you feeling that life is good and that tomorrow is full of promise...
