Finally a post on the show and serving cupcakes!

Finally a post on the Ruffles and Rust show, boy.. it has been a very busy couple of weeks for me. Sadley, my beloved camera has failed, and my cell phone broke and cracked at the show, so the few pictures I was able to save are all I got. Thank goodness for all the wonderful blogs and posts out there, and great PICS!!! Also Lisa, of New York Cupcakes in Bellevue donated a TON of the best mini cupcakes in the world, and sweet Kay of The Weathered Rose in Bothell walked around and served..WOW!

Please join us for shopping with a twist on Friday September 17th, 2010 as we present "Cupcakes and Polkadots"

Do you remember the simple delights of childhood? How a cupcake could make you giggle and as far as you were concerned, polkadots belonged on everything. As I made the passage from child to adult, I found that some of the same things that gave me delight as a child, still brought a smile to my face. The little girl in me, always looking for an opportunity to relive the happiness of childhood. Then having daughters, the perfect excuse.Cupcakes remind me of those happy times – and because cupcake bakeries are popping up all over, it’s given us glorious permission to partake in this delightful pastime! After-all, who doesn’t love a cupcake? The once simple confection, now piled high with frostings and toppings, indulging the child in all of us.It’s the simple things like cupcakes and read more.......

My Sweet Partner in Crime...

Since my last post, it has been bittersweet. My precious "Falcore" My muse, my little partner in creative crime, my sweet little boston had to be put to sleep.

She suffered from a degenerative eye disease that many boston terriers do, and had a little stroke, which dimmed her little life light, she was 8 years. Picture here, sitting at my PC, checking blog quality control... OR at one of my outside Tea Parties, sitting in the chair, always ready for something fun... She will be in my heart forever..
