Have your cake and drink it too.

Everyone knows how much I love layered cakes, so when I saw this at the grocery store last week I couldn't pas it up.

Then I had to bake some cupcakes too. Maybe I will have them together.
"If only my friend would come a join me." Sigh!


This morning I woke up to hear thundering rumble so I peeked out my curtain to see a beautiful sky over my back yard. I wanted to share it with you so I grabbed my camera and took a few pictures. I wish the houses weren't there so I could have gotten a better shot.

For my birthday......

Look at these amazing cupcakes! I was reading through my new issue of Domino the other night and came upon an article about Sprinkles. I guess they have had all sorts of reviews on the place and they are known for some pretty amazing cupcakes. They sure look good! Maybe I will get some for my birthday.

Fall is coming....

time to KNIT!

Just found this wonderful knit designer from the UK and I wish I could knit this well to be able to make garments just like this. They are so beautiful! The designer's name is Kim Hargreaves
Here are a few of the items I fell in love with.

Lilies BBC

Has anyone heard of the BBC show Lilies? I found out about the show through reading blogs and can't really find much of any other information about it. When I look it up on Amazon you can only pre-order. I want to see it now and not wait till September 11. I don't have cable either so this doesn't help me out that it is BBC. My obsession with period historical films and shows is growing.

How Wonderfuly Depressing.

I have been anticipating the arrival of the new movie about Jane Austin "Becoming Jane" for the last month. As many of you know I am a huge fan of all Jane's books which I haven't read but absolutely love the movies. I would love to read the books too. I have Sence and Sensiblilty that I have picked up a few times with good intentions in reading but just haven't made it through. A movie is much quicker to get through.
Anyway, finally saw the movie Monday night and it was just wonderful! It was much different than I thought it would be not knowing the history of Jane's life. I recommend anyone to see it! I must go see it again then purchase the DVD when it comes out and maybe even the soundtrack.

Kniting on Vacation

I did some knitting while I was on vacation. I took about 5 projects along hoping to get them all done but came back home with none finished. I did start another set of leg warmers and I tried to finish my kitten hat that I started in knitting class last winter but had many problems with it and gave up on it.


As people are pounding their fist on their desks waiting for a new blog I have been absent from the world of blogging. My dreams and desires to make this a daily ritual faded to weekly, then bi-weekly and to know it's more like monthly. I had a feeling it was coming down to this when I switched jobs and my feelings were right. I use to have time while I was working the day away to keep up on all thing wonderful blogs out their on the world wide web and now I have hard enough time to keep up with my emails coming in for work questions. Oh what is happening to me? My creative ideas are all just figments of my imagination. My craft desk is piled up with projects that have been started and not finished and new materials for new items never started.
No worries everyone I am not quiting! I just need to learn to balance the new schedule. So I ask you to be patient with my while I go through this transition. It could also be the business of summer, vacations, weekend trips, weddings, parties, evenings at the lake, movies with my sister and spending good time with my family. There is never enough time to do it all.
