Yummies...on Saturday!

I know...this is going to disrupt the balance of the universe...but I CAN NOT wait until Monday to show you a few things! Don't worry...we'll still be having Yummies on Monday, as well. But here is a lovely pink snack to tide you over until then!

Since all of these Yummies are HERE and not out in cyberspace I won't be picking you up for our cyber shopping trips as I do on Mondays. Instead I get to invite you in!! So come on in, my Sweet Friends, and make yourself comfy!

Pull up a chair, pour yourselves some coffee and grab some snacks. By the way...cute hats, girls!

YUMMY THING ONE: Cupcake Pants from Wal Mart!

Aren't these the cutest???? These were at Wal Mart in the "jammy" section! Naturally, I had to have them! They are comfy knit and even have that great thick elastic waistband that helps reign in the "pooch" (you know that extra handful of....let's call it skin...that we would like to have removed and perhaps even relocated???). The fact that my six-year-old said my pants are "cute" made me wonder for about 2 seconds if they were too juevenile. But that thought went out that window real quick...they're CUPCAKE pants!!! Who CARES if they're juevenile? Not me!

YUMMY THING TWO: Gorgeous Fabric and Luscious Lace

I picked these out at JoAnn fabrics and am just IN LOVE with them. I have the fabric and the trims in a pretty little pile I keep looking at happily and occasionally touching! They are really beautiful and I can't wait to use them. I bought them to use for the item I'm making for the auction I told you about yesterday...can't wait to make something lovely out of all of this, which will hopefully help a little SOMEONE LOVELY called Ava Grace!

YUMMY THING FOUR: "Dream" Collage by Icing on the Cake Studio

I won on Sweet Karin's blog and look what she sent me!!!! I really, really loved this when I saw it in her etsy shoppe and I even blogged about it. Then yesterday I got the prettiest package from her and when I opened it up...there it was! And you know's even prettier in person than it is in the pics! That glittery part on the edges looks like it is sugared! It truly looks good enough to eat. And isn't it pretty on my shelf?

Thank you so much, Karin! She has more of these so head on over to her shoppe and grab one before they're all gone!

YUMMY THING FIVE: Strawberry Shortcake Dolls!

Last night sister, Ray, gave Emily two new Strawberry Shortcake dolls that are both currently "too busy" to have their photos taken. They have kept the little people around here quite busy all morning, Aunt Ray! Woo-hoo! It brings back so many memories...I was a Strawberry Shortcake FANATIC as a child. I had a SSC (I just can't keep typing "Strawberry Shortcake"!) bedroom, which included sheets, bedspreads, pillows, floor rug, huge strawberry-shaped toybox, the gi-NORMOUS SSC dollhouse...need I go on? Somewhere there is a photo of me dressed up as SSC with a HUGE plastic SSC hat. Strawberry Shortcake was the Polly Pocket of the 80's, at least in my world. Happiness was being able to locate every single shoe, green-striped pair of tights and "pet," which needed to stand next to the appropriate owner during play. Yes I was THAT kind of little girl!

Since the new dolls are currently (very happily, I might add) playing quietly in their bedroom I went looking online for photos of these new dolls since they are quite adorable and yummy! I couldn't find the exact ones Ray gave Emily but I did find some similar ones to show you. But in my searching I also found a site with vintage SSC dolls! JUST EXACTLY the ones I played with!! Look at the 1982 version next to its 2007 counterpart:

Brings back SUCH fond (and YUMMY!) memories! Next time you're in Target, take a jaunt down the pink and purple aisle and stick your nose in the new SSC THAT'LL take you back!

YUMMY THING SIX: My Little Dumpling

Last but not least, here's the yummiest of yummies...Andrew!

He IS yummy, isn't he?? He's just a few days shy of 9 months and he crawled for the first time yesterday! What a big boy he is getting to be! I am so enjoying him.

Well that's it! I hear said little dumpling waking up from his nap. But this has been SUCH a lovely visit, hasn't it? Hope your Saturday is wonderful...

p.s. One last yummy just came! Look (I just squealed that "look!") at this sweeter-than-sweet little miniature cake!!!
Rosalind and Sugar are just delighted, as am I! I have a plan for this little cake, but of course you'll have to wait and see what it is! And be sure and check out the "Fairy Dreams" heirloom book I have in my eBay auctions, which includes Rosalind and bids yet, low starting price and no reserve! What a sweet treat it would make for you or someone special!

Those cheeks!!!!! I can't stand it!! :) So glad your package made it in one piece. Carlos put it in the mailbox. But before I could do anything he was smashing it in the opening because the package was a bit too big. I thought "it's destroyed"..... :) Thought you might like the surprise! Talk to you soon!

Cheryl said...

Oh thank you, Friends! :)

Hello Cheryl, what a surprise, treats on a Saturday, and gorgeous treats at that!! SCC looks nothing like the ones I had, lucky my daughters haven't seen them yet, I don't think I have room for them and my crafting stuff, somethings gotta give, maybe I can do a trade off with them, they can swap something for a new something! Hmm that won't work, they will try and give away their brother!!! Anyway what a gorgeous photo of your little one and YOU!! OK note to self, there will me no photo of moi appearing any time soon on our blog! lol ok off to read the next post! TTFN Linda Lilly Cottage.
