These cupcakes are actually some *fake* treats she baked up and are available at her etsy shop.
I am supposed to share 7 things that make me happy now. Here we go:
1. Family: My kids, my hubby Robbie(love to hang out in jammies with this guy!), my parents, my church family. I love to have a house full of people, laughter, and yummy food.
2. Retro Kitchen items:
I love old, funky red, aqua, and yellow items for the kitchen! Jadite. Red and white milk glass mugs, plates, and bowls. Mixed up pyrex patterns all stacked up together. Tin canisters with fun prints. Old cookie jars. Crocheted pot holders. Vintage salt and pepper shakers. Old figurines. Old cookbooks with great graphics.
3. Vintage Christmas:
My heart beats fast when I walk into an estate sale because I know there may be boxes full of the Christmas whimsies of the past that I love to collect. They are usually not expensive either. I love the old German glass ornaments, Shiny Brite ornaments and their wonderful graphic boxes, old snowmen and other figurines made from styrofoam balls and pipe cleaners, vintage Christmas cards, bottle brush trees, cardboard houses, plastic light-up churches, plastic deer and reindeer figurines, feather trees. I love how it all mixes at Christmas with my house that already has a lot of red in it.
4. Country Roads:
Drives on country roads make me happy. It just helps me to put things in perspective I see the beauty of the country. I remember life is good. I am moving to the country in a few days too, so I will get that every day and I am looking so forward to it!
I love the fall...and it is almost here! My absolute favorite season! I have never experienced it on the East Coast, I know I would even love it more there! I love the feeling in the air, the breeze, the smells of fall, pumpkins, comfort foods like soup, muffins, and casseroles, and the festivals small towns have to celebrate fall. I have a few fall boxes I take out to decorate, and to me it is just as fun as Christmas decorating!
Thrift stores. Garage sales. Estate sales. Antique stores.Things people leave out for the trash truck. (nice things a lot of the time) I am blessed to have a husband that enjoys all of this as much as I do. Oh, and some best friends that love to go with us too!
I love to read cookbooks and dream up menus for parties. I love to entertain and feed people! My husband also enjoys cooking too, so we have fun with it! We watch food network so much that my kids have taken to playing iron chef at home and making us taste their dishes. They have been pretty good as long as they don't use a strange secret ingredient.
Thanks Emily! I am passing this on to Teena of Kitschen Pink!
