Mushrooms, Cupcakes, and Vintage Sweetness

A little peek at some sweetness I've been working on.

Vanilla Cupcakes filled with Lemon Curd.

Wee chairs and vintage hankies.

A bit of lace and a peek of a hem...

A sleeve...

...maybe it will go with this!

It's looking like it will be a perfect outfit!

Last week I visited some antique shops and found some very sweet vintage finds. The most exciting was the little embroidered blouse, shown above, which fits my little elsa perfectly! Not only that, but matches just perfectly with the linen pants I am sewing her inspired by the book "Carefree Clothes for Girls". Do you see the little friend peeking out of the pocket? She's a tiny German dollhouse dolly that Elsa's sharp little eyes spied at the antique shop!

Seven Candles On My Cake

Birthday gifts presented by a rosy little fairy.

Wearing her Birthday Crown and holding her favorite gift.

Making a wish and blowing out seven candles.

Smelling the zinnias (do they smell good?) at our favorite local restaurant.

Best friends and cousins, exactly one month apart in age, in coordinating unicorn dresses, beloved rainbow unicorn still in hand!
Our little Elsa turned seven a couple of weeks ago! We celebrated with presents and birthday breakfast cake and strawberries in the morning, a visit to an indoor play place in the afternoon, and dinner at Joe's Farm Grill, our favorite local restaurant. Joe's has it's own garden and Elsa loves to wander through and see the flowers and try to guess what she ate that was picked fresh! She had a magical day, full of beauty and sweetness. Happy birthday little princess!
