Monday Yummies & This Week at Confections!

Hello there, Sweets! Oh I AM sorry this is so late today! I try to post my Yummy Monday "trips" early in the day, especially since I am in California, but my DSL was being ornery and I thought I might even need to call for a repair! But I got it figured out. Now it is nearly time for my two littlest two wake up from their nap so this will be a rather short Yummies trip. But better than no trip at all, I say!

Are you coming along? You ARE? Oh GOOD! I am just delighted to have your company. Well off we go then, Sweets!

YUMMY THING ONE: Barefoot Roses Tote Bag by Laura's Pretties
I just love a pretty tote bag. And this one is in one of my FAVORITE Barefoot Roses prints. SLURPITY!


I just found this incredible artist! I love so many of her lovely pieces. They are primitive but pretty, if you know what I mean. So much of what people call "primitive" is too "grungy" for my taste. But these pieces are simple, sweet, wholesome and lovely.

My friend, Brandy, pointed me in the direction of this seller. She has some INCREDIBLE bags and purses but I think this one is my fav.
YUMMY THING FOUR: Dream by Sew Many Roses
What a precious piece this is. And so original! I adore it.



Lovely. Pure and simple.

ooooooohhhh...loving this! This would be GORGEOUS in my living room...





Amy of Inspire Co. has cooked up these ultra-yummy pj pants, designed for those of us who LIVE in our jammies!

Well Sweets....that's it for Monday's Yummies! Before I run, though, I wanted to thank each and every one of you who has participated in Jennifer and my Valentine's Secret Admirer Swap! I got my package from my Secret Admirer and OH MY GOSH....talk about YUMMY! I can't WAIT to show you what she sent and to find out WHO SHE IS!

Speaking of the swap....here's what you can expect here at CONFECTIONS this week....

Tomorrow (DSL-willing!) I'm going to be showing pics of the incredible hostess gifts I have been just SHOWERED with lately. I have been sooooo very sick this last week and only today am finally feeling like me again. So I've been remiss at thanking the lovely gals who brightened my week and at showing pics of the packages they sent! Jenn and I did not expect hostess gifts and we have just been so blessed by these unexpected lovelies.

Then on Thursday, February 14th, be sure and come by for a Valentine's Day Party! We'll reveal everyone's partners and I will be showing you pics on behalf of the swap partners who don't have their own blog. They'll be lots of pretties and even a GIVEAWAY!

And right on cue, there's my little guy telling me he is awake and wanting out of his crib! Well Sweets...I'll see you tomorrow!

Love and Hugs,

Cheryl
