It's that time again....Monday is YUMMIES!

Good Morning, Sweetums All! I am simply and happily BURIED in all manner of projects and pretties. Oh but I love it! I have so many new confections that are almost ready for you. I'm going to shoot for a HUGE shop update on Friday of this week, but perhaps it will be sooner...or later...I must consult Master Andrew, my BOSS, who is currently teething and is quite the little bear, to see if he approves of this deadline. ;) But to tide you sweet friends over till then, here is a

Sneakie-Peekie of Confections I'm Busy Cooking Up for YOU!

So cross your fingers that Mr. Boss gets some teeth and QUICK! I am having such fun working on these latest projects and can't wait to show them to you.
O.k. well it's Monday and don't you worry...I've been poking around all week to find the most delicious of the delicious for your viewing pleasure. Oh honey...have I got some treats for are going to have to stop reading, go hide your wallet from yourself (or duct tape your "buy it now button" finger to something!) if you don't want to spend a bundle. So take a deep breath, climb on in my little cybercar and we are GOING SHOPPING!

YUMMY THING ONE: Vintage Doll Buggy & SOOOO Much More! by Summersdarling

Isn't this amazing! You know I love dolls and you know you do, too. We can't help ourselves. And there is just something about vintage doll buggies that is so appealing and this one is prettier than any I have ever seen. It must be the little girl in me that can imagine wheeling pretty dollies around the house or down the sidewalk in this! And the buggy is just the beginning...look at all the other pretties she's including with it! Incredible handmade doll bedding, the altered art moon fairy and Christmas ornmanets galore. You have to see the auction to appreciate just HOW MUCH is included in this! Just lovely.

Speaking of dolls, isn't she sweet? It doesn't sound like she is really vintage, but she sure looks it! I love her beautiful red hair, slightly-scuffed cheeks and CONFECTION of a dress!

The sweet Natasha is at it again! She has filled her web site with loads of new and oh-so-yummy creations! This lavender-filled strawberry is already sold but there are lots more and each one is uniquely sweet and lovely...

Yummy Thing Four: Altered Art Rose Pendants
I might as well tell you now...I am on a major vintage jewelry kick. It's not QUITE become a problem yet, but it's getting to the point that you MIGHT want to start being concerned. So if this Yummy Trip is a little heavy on the jewelry, that's why! I've hardly looked at anything else this past week!

So look at these: Vintage images turned into sweet-as-can-be pendants. I love these. I want them for one of my fabric books!

Didn't I TELL you I was going a little nutty over vintage jewelry?? Though this isn't actually vintage jewelry, don't you think this would make an incredible pendant? I wouldn't wear this as a ring. But I WOULD figure out how to get this back into its former button-state and use it for something LOVELY.

I have no use for these, but does that make me want them any less?? Heck, no! I would just enjoy looking at them in a cute little jar on my studio table! Rather like frilly undies that way, don't you think??? ;) Don't need 'em but does that stop us??
Again, I have no idea what I would use these for, but I would find something! And YOU would, too, wouldn't you? Aren't they just adorable?
Yummy Thing Eight: Antique Rose Pin
Good heavens...I think I gasped aloud when I saw this. Isn't it sumptous???
Yummy Thing Nine: Vintage Rose Earrings
There's no link to this because....I won them! Sorry...that's mean, huh? Can't help myself, Sweets! I just HAD to show them to you! Aren't they YUMMY????? I could eat them with a spoon and might just do so when they get here...
(Now Jenn, wipe that drool off your face, please....)

A person must have a spot to put all her vintage jewelry, right? Though this is a vintage purse, I wouldn't carry it as a purse but I think it would make a lovely spot for craft materials of any sort. Oh or what about as a gift box for a special friend or sister? Love that.
Isn't this just precious? I love it. Read the story behind these delightful ornaments...SEW SWEET.

Well that brings us to the end of our shopping extravanganza! You're such fun to shop with! Hope this is the beginning of a wonderful week for you. Fall is in the air here and there was even a little fog this morning! I am beginning to think I'd like to get my down comforter out. Oh! Better run...the boss is calling! Hugs to you...have a lovely day!

Linda and Laura Lilly Cottage said...

Oh I do love a bit of sparkle to wear, such divine jewellery. Thanks for this weeks shopping trip Cheryl, such fun yet again, I was a little concerned that you had a jar of frilly knickers on your table and then I read it properly instead of quickly skimming down to the next yummy! It was an interesting thought and I am sure someone actually does have a jar of frilly lace knickers in their house!!! I wounder who it is? Kiss noises Linda Lilly Cottage.
