Sweet Treats

We are getting cupcakes made from Kellie of Sweet Treats for my daughter's birthday party which is on this weekend. Kellie had us over for sampling of different flavours and boy was I in for a sweet surprise. Not only did the cupcakes look divine, they also tasted great and we had a hard time choosing. My daughter loved the butterfly themed cakes and made us sing "Happy Birthday" as she thought it was her birthday today.

Also a huge thanks to all of you who left sweet (last time I'm using this word in this post, promise) comments and wishes for me, am feeling much better now. I have loads to do for Miss 3's party but will try to update as often as I can!

How simple and lovely are these petals hung from the chandelier..

Owl Love!

Owls have been popping up everywhere in decor for sometime now, and I still adore them wether used as lampbases or as pendants to make pretty necklaces or as a special guest in a party!
How cute is this owl-themed wedding?

Lanterns and pom-poms!

I have made quite a few tissue pom-poms for my daughter's third birthday party, and I have been thinking about how and where to use them after the party as I didn't just want to throw them away. Then I came across these pictures and loved the look of these lanterns, garlands and pom-poms all clustered up. I would be re-creating something like this in her room after the party.

Perfect Spot!

You have probably already seen this picture but I just had to post it too as it's just gorgeous. I love the striped rug, the pink daybed and those lovely scatter cushions. Wouldn't this be a perfect spot to curl up with a good book or perhaps catchup with your favourite blogs?

Here's another view...

Cute things for the kitchen!

Won't these look pretty on a kitchen wall or maybe even in the dinning room? They are quite well priced at $55. I adore the blue and white ones. Which ones do you like?

You can get these beauties here!

Softly Does it!

Since my post on Friday required sunnies just to look at the pictures I thought I’ll share pictures with a softer palette today. And yes this is my idea of a softer palette even with a few pops of  brighter tones here and there..Hope you don’t mind!mosaic2mosaic1 11and125and6 8and9
