Yummy Monday...and a HUGE Shoppe Update!

Hello, Sweets!! It's Monday again...and it's a very special Monday indeed! If you've popped in for Monday Yummies, you won't be disappointed but it's a bit different than your average Yummy Trip. Instead of carting you about cyberspace, I've set my own table and am having you in for Yummies today! We're going to have a yummy little party together...and just wait till you see the oh-so-Sweet Confections I've cooked up for you!

And I've dispatched this little cutie to come and fetch you climb in next to her (her name is Ann and she likes jellybeans, in case that is helpful!) and she'll drop you at my door in a jiffy!

This is number one of four tussie mussies I've created this week. I've had SO MUCH FUN making theses! Each one is unique and has tons of over-the-top details. I LOVE the song, "I Hope You Dance" and when I saw this charming vintage ballerina bisque doll, I knew she was perfect for a future project. And she is! She fits perfectly inside this tussie mussie. I even made her a pink tuling "tutu" since for some reason she had just bloomers and a blouse when I found her. This tussie mussie is available here in my etsy shoppe, starting today!

My second tussie mussie for sale in my etsy shoppe is one I just ADORE. I used this DEAREST of vintage images of a mother and daughter to embellish this pink ticking-covered tussie mussie. The cone is lined (as all of my tussies are) with a page from a vintage book about childhood. Other details include a pink ticking ruffle, vintage crocheted collar, netting tail and pink velvet ribbon. A matching tag is included with the cone and features the same vintage image on a pink wooden tag with pink velvet ribbon. You can find it here.
YUMMY THING THREE: Rachel's Roses Tussie Mussie (SOLD)
This tussie mussie is over-the-top divine with details galore! It is covered in one of my favorite Rachel Ashwell prints and features THREE layers of ruffles, including chiffon, organdy and more of the Rachel print. 3 yo-yos are encrusted with vintage and new buttons, beads and baubles and fat pink satin bow makes the "toe" even sweeter! The "strap" is made from vintage lace and the inside is lined with paper and more lace.
YUMMY THING FOUR: Southern Belle Tussie Mussie (SOLD)
This beauty was fashioned from a vintage runner and is sweet, simple and delicate in every way. The hand-embroidered Southern Belle was begging to be repurposed into something beautiful and seems MADE for this cone! The blue ruffle on top was made from vintage seam binding and the "strap" is a new but very vintage-looking chenille trim. A chunky pink satin bow echoes the Belle's bows for a charming effect.
YUMMY THING FIVE: Altered Art Halloween Tags (SOLD)
I had such fun making these altered art tags. They are HUGE and made for a really fun surface on which to play! Vintage images of kids, pretty papers, black crepe paper ruffles, glittery letter and even rhinestones went into these tags and they are over-the-top SWEET...not a sinister one among them! They are listed on etsy and you will receive 5 large tags, perfect for scrapbooking, gift-giving or even decorating...

YUMMY THING SIX: Miss Halloween Birdie Treat Jar (SOLD)
Darling little bird perches on top of a tiny glass jar and is embellished prettily for a Halloween TREAT! Jar is full of my favorite yummy mallow pumpkins. Look for Miss Halloween here...
YUMMY THING SEVEN: Miss Halloween Tussie Mussie
Black and white harlequin fabric tussie mussie with black fuzzy trim and ribbon make a Spooky Sweet way to decorate for Halloween. Another Sweet Miss Halloween Birdie and flocked mini-pumpkins nest in the tussie mussie. She is waiting for a home here...
YUMMY THING EIGHT: Portrait of a Young Girl
I had such fun making these plaques. SO my style...simple and sweet. Vintage image of a young girl layered on linen with delicate embroidery. Wooden placque with luscious pink velvet ribbon bow and hanger. Back of placque covered with pink toile cardstock. Brass fleur-de-lis hanger included. Listed here.
YUMMY THING NINE: Portrait of a Young Boy
This little guy reminds me of my Andrew! I love the look of these vintage kiddoes on linen. Simple and sweet. More delicate embroidery. Wooden placque with luscious white velvet ribbon bow and hanger. Back of placque covered with blue and white striped cardstock. Brass fleur-de-lis hanger included. Listed here...YUMMY THING TEN: Vintage Birthday Cake Tag (SOLD)
One of my favorite vintage birthday cards has been printed onto fabric and then layered on a linen circle and fixed to a wooden circle. TWO layers of pink crepe paper ruffles and rhinestones make for a festive touch! Has a little ribbon loop on back that would make it perfect to hang or to tie into the ribbons on an over-the-top SWEET gift for someone you love. This is listed here.

Well Friends, that's it for now! Thanks so much for coming over and partying with me. I always love to have you here. :)

Hurry on over to my etsy shoppe if any of these Confections are things you "Hafta Have"! :) I'll be pulling the Halloween things from the shoppe in a few days so that they are sure to ship in time for Halloween, so if you like them, get them quick! More confections in the works, so check back often...

Have a YUMMY week!
