It's Yummy Monday, Sweets!


Edited: We're moving house, as my friends Jenn and Jacqui in Australia would say! I'll be popping online here and there as I can the next few days and sometime this weekend (hopefully!) I will get the computer hooked up at the new house. The next post will be my 100th and to celebrate that and our new house (and my new studio!) I am going to make the next post a HUGE party and Giveaway! So come back early next week and celebrate with me.... I promise there will be lots of excitement and a chance to win!! Hello and Welcome, Sweets! So happy to see you today! If you've popped by for Monday Yummies, you're right on time!



And look how we're going to travel through cyberspace together today! What a treat! This little cherub and her sweet bird have agreed to pick us up and carry us about so I can show you all the yummiest things I've found this week! How kind of them. They are oh-so-sweet and will gladly tote us about. They ask only for a little snack! Well with that settled, let's hop on and be off! You're in for a sweet trip today, Sweets!



Speaking of cake! I saw this on flickr first and immediately fell in love! You know how much I love dolls and cake. So when I saw this....well you can imagine...





YUMMY THING TWO: Domed Pedestal Cake Stand


And while we're on the subject of cakes, I love cake stands. And I love a pink cake stand even MORE. But adding a dome lid....well that just takes the cake!




And here's a lovely cake to put on your cake pedestal!


YUMMY THING FOUR: Vintage Pink Sewing Box

Isn't this little box DEAR?? I just adore it. Darling little decal on the side, as well, and isn't that a fabulous shade of pink?



This is one of those items that made me squeal aloud. Isn't it scrumptious? I love the color, the fact that it's a sewing drawer, the little shoes, the vintage graphics, the glitter....all of it! This would make the perfect baby shower gift.




Love this. I just found this seller and am intrigued by the lovely mosaic items she makes with beads, buttons and baubles. Just look at the close-up/detail shot. Wow.

YUMMY THING SEVEN: Tooth Fairy Pillow by Vintage*Cottage*Creations

This is so sweet for the little girls in our lives! It would also be sweet to tuck a little love note into the pocket, too, so just about any girls would love it for some purpose!
YUMMY THING EIGHT: Lovely Vintage Pillowcases


Now these are incredible. I would love to use these on my girls' beds. But I'd also love to make a simple and sweet pair of pillowcase dresses out of them to wear in the summer. On the other hand, these two are begging to be part of a quilt... What a dilemna!

YUMMY THING NINE: Darling Vintage Doll Bed & Wardrobe

Isn't this adorable? My friend, Pat, has this for sale in her eBay store. I have doll beds on the brain, probably because I bought an antique doll bunk bed on eBay and I'm fixing it up for my girls for one of their Christmas presents. I'm going to paint it white and make lovely "bedding" for it! Can't wait to show you the results!




Well that's it, Bloggy Pals! Hasn't this been a nice little trip? I hope this week is a perfectly yummy one. I will *hopefully* be moving into the new house sometime this week and will of course keep you posted about that! Soooo exciting! This is me praying the (Second) inspection goes well and we get the green light to move in.

Thanks for popping by, my Sweet Friends...




HUGS to you!!!


p.s. OMG! I just realized this is my 99th post! How amazing! And I'm almost to 100 items sold in my etsy shoppe, too. I am going to have a 100th post party and giveaway. So stay tuned this week for that! It's going to FUN!!!
