My sister's pretty cupcake (above). Mine below, all chocolate. The shop let us use pretty vintage plates to sit our cupcakes on. I wish I could find pretty plates like these at our local thrift store.
It's amazing how many cupcakeries (is that a word?) have opened in the past few years.

Read her lovely shabby blog here. The online article can be found here.
Love this porch. I have those boots, too :)
This is my dream bedroom.

This simple flower crown reminds me of Midsummer. Didn't Kirsten (American Girl) wear one?
If you have a craft store near you, it is simple to make.
You will need vine wrapped wire, silk flowers, ribbons, wire cutter and a hot glue gun.
Doesn't the vine look like a little bird's nest :)
Then I tied on two pieces of pink satin ribbon.
I have plenty of materials left over to make many more crowns so the cost probably comes to $1 or under.
Linking up to Tea Rose Home. Stop by Sachiko's lovely blog and see what the other ladies' created...

Happy May day and Happy Lei day! I took this picture last year of lei's that were for my sister's wedding. I just love the smell of gardenia, pikake (jasmine), plumeria and tuberose. We have two plumeria trees here but there was a bad frost last year so I hope they come back to life.
and here is one of my favorite yet very simple desserts...custard pie from Zippys!! :o)
Have a lovely day!

Look at the sunlight streaming in this picture...is it Spring yet?
I've been meaning to build a swing that will hold 2-3 people because I know of a perfect spot by the creek, getting roses to climb up the sides would be tricky though.
I've always wanted an old-fashioned bicycle with a wicker basket.
I love these photographs by Rodney Smith. Check out his portfolio at http://www.rodneysmith.com/

Nicole looks lovely in these dresses. Even when she is working on her raised gardens beds, she looks like she stepped out of a Boden ad. This goes to show you can wear a high neckline and still be beautiful!
I especially love the big bow on this dress. Am wondering about her hair though, it doesn't seem very period correct. Didn't women wear their hair up unless they were young girls? I do want to have a daugerreotype made though...now I just need a civil war type dress.
