My Mom's House

Today I'm sharing just a few pictures of my Mom's living room.  I snapped
these really quickly when I was at her place in Canada last fall, so the
picture quality isn't great, but you will get the idea. 

Mom lives in a beautiful Victorian (newer Victorian) style home and she
has decorated it beautifully!  I can't tell you how many of the pieces in
this picture came from Utah.  We love to treasure hunt when she is here!
Those lovely highback Victorian chairs were blue when she purchased them
here at an auction.  She had them reupholstered in swanky burgandy velvet
and they are gorgeous!  Hmmm...let's see...the sconces on either side of the
mirror, the candlesticks and the rose vase are all from Utah too!

Here's a different view out toward the if you couldn't's
looking kind of bright!  I love her sofa and loveseat!  It is so comfortable and
it reminds me of the furniture that used to be on the show "Bonanza"...sort of
an elegant Victorian ranch style.  She has lots of pretty carved floral rugs too!

This silver tea service is a favorite too and it weighs a ton!

A closer view...

And out the garden door to the deck...

Hope you enjoyed!

Just A Bit Of Pink...

I just wanted to share a few pics with you today and the first one is a
picture of our Japanese flowering cherry tree (Kwanzan cherry).  We
planted three of them on our park strip last year and I am thrilled that
they made it through the winter and are now blooming!  I love these trees!
I cannot wait until they get big and make our street look even prettier!

Aren't the blossoms just amazing!

Here are my pink roses that I bought at Costco the other
them in my old large mason jar!  These ones smell gorgeous too!

Just look at these blooms...*sigh* there anything better?!

Sweet Faux Cupcakes ~ Yum Yum!

Well it's been exactly one month since I have blogged!  I know...where did the
time go?  I took a little vacation and got a bad cold as the result of it, am
battling seasonal allergies and am trying to get rid of another little issue!  I
hope that I am on the mend!  With all of that being said, I thought it was high
time that I listed some more faux cupcakes as my stock is running really low.
Here are some of the newest ones that are listed in my Sweet Treats Boutique!

All of my newest cupcakes have sweet vintage ballerina toppers, either dotted
or silver cupcakes liners and either pink or white sparkled frosting!

These look good enough to eat!

The cupcakes are available in either my Etsy shop or on my web site...the
prices are the same in both venues.  Be sure to take a peek!

Wishing you a wonderful week ahead!
