Looks like I will be making homemade peeps this year!!!!

Dreaming .........
from here via here.

I just spent the whole night with my mom watching Gilmore Girl reruns and making things like acorn squash and cookies. I wish I had a huge kitchen with beautiful cabinets and counter tops and a TV. I once had a TV in my kitchen it was amazing. Especially at Christmas.

Stuff I like... with links I can't find.

My husband and I wanted to have a carnival/ circus theme wedding but since we were getting married in December it was going to be a little too cold. Every so often we think... "um want to renew our vows so we can have a circus wedding?" But it seems to be a bit soon (we have been married for 2 1/2 years) Its my fault.... I love to plan parties. This couple here had the cutest engagement pictures I ever saw. I love them.

I have a tendency of saving pictures of things I like on my desktop but never really remembering where I found them...

Cutest invitations EVER!

I want this store front so I can start my gluten free bakery and coffee shop! I want it bad.
(So if you know where I can find it let me know please)

Some beautiful looking cakes

Back to School

Well then I guess Summer is almost over.... so sad. Yesterday was the first day back to work. I wanted to stay at the beach but it didn't happen. (I was on "vacation" last week)
So here is what I am excited about instead....

I made this cake for Robin's B-day. Happy Birthday Robin!
Yes, Those are SKITTLES!!!

I made and ordered some test labels for my lip balms....

They really have a nice scalloped edge.....
I named the company Honey Bunny Bear after my snuggly cat...

and speaking of cats!!!!!
This is Elenor
Robin's new kitten... So So Cute!!

I want to paint a room like this wall..

Pauly and I are going to lay on the couch and watch Lost!!!!
I want to do some nice napping and maybe shop a little and make some things on my nice long 3 day weekend!!

I am trying to clear out some clutter in my house.

Ooops I know I wasn't supposed to buy more stuff... but I couldn't really help it. Look how lovely. So I had about 4 minutes before I had to leave for work and I just sort of bought this. I mean I really wasn't thinking .... but I am so excited to get it.

I played monopoly all day with 7 year olds. And I went to visit my friend, Kristen, at the hospital because she had the cutest little baby today. His name is Mason.

I Dream in Cotton Candy

Oh I love anything Circus or Carnival related.... Thats why I need these super cute cards....

I am also in love with cotton candy...
I am (sort of) patiently awaiting the delivery of my new lip balm supplies so I can continue making delicious new flavors and scents. I am planning to make some root beer and some cotton candy flavored lip balms very soon.

Well its Friday!!!! I have been looking up lots of new ways to fix things..... I need a change of scenery. I am considering several options for the weekend.... including but not limited to...

1. making a bunch of clothes
2. farmers market then lots of baking.... (if I can find a farmers market in Litchfield)
3.Painting my cabinets in the kitchen... not sure how that is going to pan out. Pretty much I just want to go to Ikea and get a new kitchen or find sweet vintage cabinets on the side of the road. actually that would be the best.
4. Lots of etsy shopping.... I found two million things I need to buy people on etsy.
I just love it.

so I am off to a picnic in about 12 minutes.


If you can't find me its cause I moved here....

or here....

But either way I'll be in Switzerland living in an Earth House.

oh Happy August

Whats really weird is that I have been sort of hot lately. Not normal at all for me. Of course I am an idiot who things its appropriate to wear jeans and converse and knee socks in August.... but anyway so I have been thinking about some cooler weather things which is very strange for me cause I live for the summer. But I also live for cooking and Christmas!!!! So here are a few things that I found on Etsy that I have to get for some people for Christmas Presents cause they are amazing.

Oh right these are actually for me.....
